Also sorry you didn't get to meet Mr. Mayhaw.
Mr Mayhaw fully intended on going over and meeting Elise on Saturday afternoon, but both of the little Mayhaw's soccer teams won their first tournament games (believe me, this in itself is a miracle given the records of both of their teams
) and had to stay on the Northshore to transport soccer players to different venues.
I was very dissappointed, as I wanted to meet Elise and her family and I also wanted to go to Rock n Bowl and see Sonny Landreth and the Goners on Saturday p.m for the 15th anniversary of the Bowling Alley ( a really great roadfood nightspot, that not only has great food, but live music nightly and bowling at the same time in an old upstairs bowling alley built in the forties).
I was very pleased to speak to her on Sunday a.m. however and hear that a suggestion or two that I had made were of some use.
Incidentally, when I asked her what her favorite food was while she was in town, she said "Red Beans and Rice at Mike Anderson's". Folks, just to let everybody in on the secret......guess what makes these beans so good? Lard. Another fabulous pork product. Great for pie crusts, beans, and greasing the axles on wagons (just in case you are having trouble with your covered wagon).
Hopefully I will see her next time. Either way I enjoyed meeting her by telephone and putting a voice to the screen
