Memphis in May 2013

Memphis in May is an annual month-long celebration. The first weekend of May is the Beale Street Musical Festival, which is three days of music on four stages at Tom Lee Park along the Mississippi River.

My 40th Birthday in Vegas – October 4, 2012

My 40th Birthday in Las Vegas Oct 4, 2012, that I had been planning since December 2011, was a fabulous celebration! Four glorious days in Vegas with my family and friends. We ate, we drank, we played the slots, we explored. This was my fifth time in Las Vegas, and it never disappoints. Vegas is my…

My 2011, or should I say U2011

When I look back, I will see 2011 as a watershed year for me. It was a year when my entire life changed – for the better. I started the year in Memphis and ended it back home in Maryland – and in between drove 18,000 miles through 31 states in search of a drummer.…

I won big at Dover Downs

Last week, I took a break from unpacking and organizing to take a trip with my mom and Ms. Kathy to Dover Downs Casino. For the first time ever, I won big at at the slots – and big for me is $1,760.80! I won it on the new penny slot machine called Bombs Away.…

There’s No Place Like Home

October has always been my favorite month, mainly because it’s my birthday month. This October I started my 39th year back home in Maryland – literally at my parents’ house. The movers came to my house in Memphis at 7am on October 1 and packed my stuff until noon. They were very good, very careful.…

Memphis to Maryland

Today is the last day in September, and my last day in Memphis. I had my last meal in Memphis at Central BBQ. The house is all packed and the car is loaded. The movers will be here in the morning, and we’ll be on our way back home to Maryland. I am quite excited…

Maryland Move Countdown: 8-10 days

Just over a week to go until I move back home to Maryland. I scheduled the movers today, and they will be here next week – either Wednesday, Thursday or Friday – and I will be in Ellicott City two days later. I scheduled Salvation Army to come pick up a bunch of stuff I’m…

2010 My Year in Review

I had a fantastic 2010 and am looking forward to 2011. I visited many places I had been wanting to visit. I did not make it through my entire list, but I made quite a dent. January I attended Elvis’ Birthday weekend celebration. It would have been his 75th, so there was a lot of…

Maryland to Memphis Day 1: EC to Bristol

Well I’m on the road again. This time heading back to Memphis. Today I went as far as Bristol, Virginia, which is just over 6 hours from my parents’ house – 390 miles. Even though today’s drive is shorter than tomorrow’s, it’s my least favorite part because it is all Virginia and all route 81,…
