Vacation was very satisfying and invigorating, especially witnessing the marriage of two good friends. The ribs at Rendezvous Ribs in Memphis were kickin'! The waiters at Rendezvous are famously rude- they sometimes simply bring you ribs without even asking. Though, having had the ribs, that rudeness is really kindness.
My niece in St. Louis was adorable as always. She is growing up and is the big sister now, as my brother and his wife are expecting their long awaited second. I had Ted Drewes custard and Gus's Pretzels (the Italian Sausage stuffed ones are superb!) but my only regret is that Grant's Farm wasn't open so my niece could show me the Clydesdale Stables.
Back to the vineyard of St. Mary's!
