Here I am in Little Rock for an Innkeepers Convention. The trip down took 6:20 for 332 miles, including a 30 minute lunch at the Dixie Cafe in Harrison. Now, I'm on the 11th floor of the Peabody Hotel overlooking the old (& the current) state capitol bldgs, illuminated by occasional lightning. Yes, the Peabody has ducks - 1 mallard drake & 4 hens today.
Watchword of the trip is FOG. Definitely thick, too thick to drive at the speed everyone was driving. Temp in the foggy areas was generally 37-38; much colder and it would have been ice fog. Whew. Since Sandra wasn't with me, I had to watch for signs on my own: The Goat Cap (or was it Goat Gap) cafe is closed in Pindall AR. The Bluegrass Cafe (I didn't catch the town) has Bear Wiz on tap. The Lost Cherokee Nation HQ is north of Clinton, AR.
Now, to read thru what's going on the next few days & pick my workshops!
