Two things occur to me while looking at those photos.....
1) I look even more ridiculous than I imagined in the Hawaiian shirt.  Next year when it is photo time, I am hiding behind someone.
2) When I grow up, I want to be Travelin Man!

  You look Mavh-A-Laous, My friend. Look back at the photos soon. I didn't take many photos of the foods, but I do have some very nice ones to be added to the post above today. We will probably retitle this thread "trip report" with a reference to the pages where the planning stops and the journals begin, then move it to the Trip Report Forum.

Susan,
   We missed your Genteel, Ladylike touch at these sessions. We hope you will join us at the next meeting.  Check back later...I saw several cameras in action when the Doe's Tamales arrived.

Well, I guess you could use it for that, but he's much too polite.

I too doubt he uses it as a bib, but he must be fertilizing it well, as it has grown considerably since I last saw him about a year ago! Nice work Chris!

The blonde-haired Lauren exclaimed, "he's so cute.
He reminds me of my father. But older."

Ok I will start things off for the coverage of the events of the weekend with a very simple summary...We had a great time. Some of the group did a whole lot more in the way of food-stops, others did Graceland and other Memphis Highlights and some stuck to the basics for this trip. I have heard from most of the group and everyone seems to have had a real fine trip!!
  Here are two photos... One of the Group at Leonards BBQ Saturday night, and the second of TTM using his usual charms to discuss Porterhouse steaks with our Server at the DOES EAT PLACE in PADUCAH, KY. We stopped at Does on the way home Sunday and we are very glad we did.
 
I will complete a journal and a series of Photos of the events we attended ON THIS POST later today.  I invite all the photo-bugs to do a post and put all of your entries in that post (use the edit button a lot if you have too! Doing the "Trip Report" that way will put all of one persons contributions in one entry, and should avoid any confusion about who's photos are we looking at !!
OK  Here is the Group-
 
 
 
Names- left to right
Front row- Mayor Al, Iwanago, Mrs Mayor, Amy, Mrs Rick F
Row 2- Kerry,WanderingJew, Ayersian, ChiTwnDnr, TTM, Johnny, Sundancer, NorthCarolina, BB, Pov.Pete, RickF

 
Second photo- TTM and Paducah Doe's Food Server (and new "Good Friend", Cassie !
 

 
More to follow here shortly.


 I hope you took pics of Duffy and Demi in their attire, YOU bought.

Al and Travelin' Man, I'm so glad you got to go to Doe's Eat Place in Paducah.  I guess you'll tell us how it compares with the one in Greenville, but my guess is, from your preliminary expressions about it, is that it compares favorably.

I had a long, long dinner with North Carolina at the Bon Ton Mini Mart in Henderson, Kentucky this afternoon.  He had just come from your get-together.  We couldn't stop talking, and he really liked the chicken.  I'll be taking Buffetbuster around western Kentucky in late April.  I'll fatten him up when he's here, and you can read all about it in one of his upcoming trip reports.

Al, Buffetbuster and I will hit as many restaurants that we can squeeze into one day.  We've already got the Bon Ton Mini Mart in Henderson, Knockum Hill Bar-B-Q in Herndon, Patti's in Grand Rivers, and Peak Bros. Bar-B-Q in Waverly.  We might be able to work in Doe's in Paducah.  We won't know until we try.

TTM is spending the day with a friend in Evansville. Tomorrow I am going to take him out to Claudia Sanders Dinner House for lunch and around some of the horse farm area before he departs for home later in the day.
 
A couple of travel notes on the trip home. We crossed the Mississippi and the Ohio at Cairo, IL. It is interesting to cross the Mississippi then at the foot of the bridge make a right turn and immediately cross the Ohio. Being able to view the confluence of those two wonderful water highways is quite an experience!!
 
   Most of you are aware that this area went thru a major ice storm about a month ago. We had no power here in Indiana for several days (and nights) and won't forget the feeling for a long time. Well, after we crossed the Ohio River into Kentucky down in the Western corner of the State, we had a 30 mile ride on US 60 thru the rural area to Paducah. The devestation was amazing. Whole forests were destroyed  and uprooted. Even this Sunday, a month after the storm there were hundreds of Utility trucks working (on Sunday) to restore the power to thousands of folks in that area. There were downed power poles and lines all along U S 60 ! That surprised me. I thought tha the people still without services would be "back in the woods" but these folks were living along a 'major road' and in some cases in town! We saw hundreds of church and community signs about 'shelter available', and giving THANKS to the Utility workers and National Guard who were still working hard to get things back to normal.  That was quite a ride !!
 
Louis and BB,
  I can' recommend Doe's in Paducah highly enough !! I would put it at the very top of my Roadfood list for the whole Ohio Valley! I was very impressed with that place.

mrchips-
We would love to see you with us in Charleston next year!

Louis-
I mentioned to Poverty Pete about meeting us in Herndon and he sounded interested.  I didn't realize it wasn't that far for him.

My traveling partner for the past weekend ChiTownDiner will be doing the majority of the photo posting for our adventures, but here are some of my favorite non-food photos.

Wanderingjew and Poverty Pete standing in line to pay, right next to a woman preparing salads shows the organized chaos that is Doe's Eat Place in Greenville.


Louis, susanll's husband was fun, outgoing and fit right in with the group.  Here he mugs for the camera at Cozy Corner.


First one back at our table at Leonard's with a plate full of food was Poverty Pete.

I would have guessed somebody else!

Sundancer and myself at Cozy Corner.
 

At the breakfast at The Arcade, Amy (of ayersian) seems especially amused listening to ChiTownDiner order.  And order.  And order!

There is no truth to the vicious rumor I started that our waitress had to go fetch another ordering pad, since CTD filled that one up!

BB,
  Good Photo's ! You have supplied Proof that TTM isn't the only "Chick Magnet" in the Group ! It looks like Wandering Jew was doing that also ! Maybe I-95 will repost the comment he made further up this page??
 


Thanks for filling in some of the missing locations.

Actually Poverty Pete asked me to keep an eye on her while he was paying to make sure she didn't slip away.

You know I can't help but notice a slight passing resemblance between "Mildred's" or "Poke Salad Annie's" attire and
I95's- coincidence?? or ??????
