Chapter 11: Mississippi Whirlwind

Upon leaving Memphis, we went to Tupelo, MS.  Tupelo is a town of some 30,000 residents, enough to place it in the top-10 most-populated Mississippi “cities.”  There, we stayed with Mo and Addie, a young couple.  They took us to Cracker Barrel, a chain country-cookin’ restaurant.  We were not inspired.  We talked college football.  Ole Miss is big time here.  The ever-amazed Alexi learned about the internet.

Elvis was born in Tupelo.  We visited his house.  If the aliens descended today, touched down in northern Miss. or in Memphis, and had any concept of theism, surely they would be convinced that Elvis is our #1 God.
