Wherein We Stuff Ourselves Silly

After leaving New Orleans, we headed north to Tunica. We're hardly big gamblers, but you may have noticed that we are big eaters, and Paula Deen's buffet was calling to us. I was so excited I could hardly stand it. And wouldn't you know! I got to meet Paula Deen's cardboard cutout. Despite my half-hearted attempt to pace myself, I still ate way too much and was a bit miserable. It was worth it though. My top three favorites were: fried green tomatoes, fried chicken, and fried catfish. Yes, I realize that "fried" is a part of each one. It's a sickness!
As I said, we aren't big gamblers (mostly because I am way too cheap for that!) but when in Vegas, er, ah, Tunica, do as the Romans. Wait - is that how that goes? We found a few penny and nickel slots. David is very lucky with the slot machines - he won about $30! The last time we were in Vegas he won $200 on the HeeHaw nickel slot. Of course, we didn't leave with any of it. We let the Paula Deen penny slots take it all. There is just something fun about watching rows of butter, sweet tea, fried chicken, and pie line up!

After spending the night at Harrah's in Tunica, we headed home to our house and pets. We had a great vacation! Thank you David for making all the arrangements!
