Well, my journey westward to Denton, TX is now in full swing. This past week we finished packing up the house in GA and the movers arrived to load it up on the truck. It is so much work to manage all of the stuff we have accumulated over the years, even with the culling out from the past three moves. Anyway, we got it done and whent he truck was loaded and gone I breathed a sigh of relief as we packed the cars with the remaining items and pulled away from the house for the last time.
My last night in Athens was just right and included a delicious dinner with friends at Farm 255, followed by a slightly embarrasing indulgence into the world of Twilight Eclispe, which I loved (sheepish grin spreading while I write this). The boys hung at the Tate's house and in the morning they treated us to a delicious breakfast.
As we were literaly driving out of Athens, Ted Maclin called Jim to pass on some wonderful news. The book they have been working on, The Slaw and the Slow Cooked: an Anthropology of Mid-South BBQ, has been approved for publication. To celebrate we stopped at his house on our way westward to enjoy a night at the farm, friendship and of course mid-south BBQ.
