Here's a shot of Dennie and his beautiful gold convertible. Keep an eye on his wide-brimmed hat -- it will probably turn up often on the upcoming trip.

After doing a trial run to make sure our luggage would fit in the trunk, we retired to Dennie's basement for a couple of cold ones.DSCF0725__Small_.jpg.
After that, Dennie entertained with a little guitar and a little harmonica action. Ain't he talented?

Tuesday is just around the corner......stay tuned!

It was Dennie's idea to tour the Mississippi Delta region, birthplace of the blues, to see the old juke joints before they faded into history. What's a juke joint? Click here and educate yourself a bit. Don't feel bad - until a few months ago I didn't know what they were either. But Dennie did, and has always had a hankerin' to pay them a visit. I'm a newcomer to the blues, but they've grown on me. Dennie's got some time on his hands right now while recovering from some shoulder problems, so this seemed like as good a time as any to make his dream come true. It wasn't hard to convince me to tag along. The lure of blues, beer, Dennie's convertible, and the open highway was all it took.
