So I was sitting here spending my precious time doing....ummm...well....nothing really and decided to open my pictures and post something. These are memories captured in August 2009. That makes Carter just turned 3 in these pictures.
Above is the bridge that runs from Downtown Memphis to
the state of Arkansas. Part of the bridge is in Tennessee and the other half is in Arkansas. And that is the mighty Mississippi River.
Below is a Magnolia. Isn't it beautiful! I absolutely love all the Magnolia trees down here.
These pictures were taken at Mud Island. It is a museum that created a miniature version of the Mississippi River. You can see where it starts and follow it all the way on its journey. Kids love to jump around and splash in the water.
I live in an amazing place (despite Memphis being the scum of the Earth and holding the highest of rankings in crime, teen pregnancy, drugs, gangs, murder, theft, etc) and there is so much beauty. I have never felt unsafe (but would never venture in parts of Memphis after dark) and the only time I really hear of or see any of the riff raff is on the news. If I didn't watch the news (and I rarely do anymore) I just might think I lived in one of the best places on Earth. I am now determined to show you more of where I live. I will get on that...in a month or two.
