We chatted with a couple from Winston-Salem during breakfast. He was a former FBI agent who set up RJ Reynolds security before he retired. She was a master gardener who curates the herb garden in the Moravian Community of old Salem. They were interested in Jim's work and the Dead Sea Scrolls and were very jolly breakfast companions. That can be a bonus of B and Bs; it can also be a liability.

We arrived at a very new Holiday Inn Express in Jackson, Mississippi around 4:30. Supper was pizzas at Manship in the middle of a large Baptist Health Center. An artichoke and chicken pizza was interesting, but the fire roasted carrots were great--we did need a veggie after all!
Jim watched Monday Night Football and I got annoyed with the noise. Eventually, he muted it, and then later I watched it too. There is a need for compromising while travelling!
I'm writing from the Memphis Airport where we just returned our cute red Ford Focus to the Alamo Dealer. We put on 994 miles in seven days.
We're very ready to be home but also grateful for safe and healthy travel. And we are planning our next Mississippi River road trip--maybe the area around St. Louis and Hannibal during fall break, October 2015.
