Flyin' (Drivin') me back to Memphis.......

It's our annual road trip to see (fight with) my family. You know the one. Everyone gets together, you have the big blowout once you get there and then everyone is all happy! That's how it usually goes with us! Oh, don't get me wrong. We all love each other, but we're just as dysfunctional as the next family is!

This time we're heading to Ohio and then onward to West Virginia! Ten hour days each and eight of them just to get out of Texas! A lot of driving but we have Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy downloaded, we have our towel, we're not going to panic. We're ready to go!

First stop in Memphis was Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken in Colliersville. A little deceiving as it's just a little house on a street, but don't let that fool you. The house is actually on the historic registry and the chicken is very good. Always fresh, never frozen. Although they say it is hot and spicy, this Texas girl needed to put some hot sauce on it, but the taste itself was very good. A very good recommendation from the Food Network and in a very good price range too.

Day two, we are on our way to Ohio. Next post then!
