Sleepless in Memphis

Things we learned last night.

1.  Homemade beanie weenies (Bush's Original Baked Beans with bacon and brown sugar along with Trader Joes all-natural hot dogs) taste awesome....yea, we are on a budget.  :)

2.  While the kind of gas baked beans gives me usually leads to a night of entertaining complaints from my room mates, the kind of gas it gives Aldous is painful, wakes him up at about 1:30 and keeps him up crying till about 3:00 AM.  Poor little fella.  :(

3.  Michelle has a super human ability to pace back in forth in a hotel room in the pitch dark lugging this 30 lb crying fit pitching ball of kicking arms/legs for what seems like hours trying to calm him down.  I don't know how she does it.  My back won't last 5 minutes.

4.  The number one way to determine you didn't get enough sleep?  You wake up and your eyeballs are itching something fierce. 

5.  No more baked beans for Aldous...

Ok, back on the road and a quick stop to see The King before we head to Hot Springs national park.  The weather looks crappy today, so it may be slow progress.  We'll see...


  1. "Takin' care of business, in a flash. Uh, huh! Uh, huh! Thank you very much." Elvis has left the building.

  2. Reminds me of that famous line uttered by Doris, the TV repairwoman...
    "Are you crazy? You don't feed a baby chili!"
