My wife and I once ate at McAlisters Deli in Pearl, just off of I-20.
You can almost throw a rock from there to my house.

Just so you know, my house is three bedrooms. King bed, queen bed, and a bunk bed. Also has a very comfortable couch and loveseat that's basically two recliners and plenty of floor space.

Let me know what works for you fellas. Late June, early July?

We happened to be passing through on a Sunday evening, if I recall correctly, and you were speaking somewhere at the time. As it turned out, and as I found out later, my older brother was in the hospital in Jackson at the time, and so I missed checking in on him as well. I don't remember how he ended up in Jackson, but I'm guessing it was related to the VA somehow. Anyway ...
I'm old but I'm happy. (Most of the time.)

What about an NC meetup while you are up this way?

June 30 to like July 2 for me. It would be a stop by, spend a few hours, and leave kind of thing for me, most likely. You know how the schedule of a missionary goes...

I could possibly meet up at Sam or DLJ’s house if you are able to make it over there, I will be done with work for the Summer in precisely 2 weeks. Either that or my parents live just outside Durham, could set up a meetup there too.

Quincy and I have been talking about roadtripping to The Squire this summer. If the dates are right perhaps we could work it out. The only down side is that I can't get any weekends off work this summer. What dates are you thinking? I cannot do the first week of July.

Sweet.

I most likely be back to MS no later than the 22nd, but probably even earlier. I can meet up any time.

Just an FYI...the Country Squire is moving shop (but only two doors down in the same complex). However, if you and Quincy want to see the original store, you probably want to come down in the next 30 days or so.

I will be home by Wednesday, the 20th, next week. I'll be in MS by myself until July 18. What times work for you guys? Pretty much any of those times are good for me, though weekend'ish days are better.

Looks like we won't have NC overlap. MS is out for me... dang.

+1 there is a slight chance that I may be driving out to Arkansas at some point to see my grandfather, but no plans as of yet...

I'll most likely be driving from Birmingham to your place on June 30. I'll probably crash and leave the following morning.

Ok, there you have it fellas. Joshua will be down Saturday. You all are welcome to come whenever. If any want to come Friday and stay the weekend that's cool. I will probably have to work Friday, but will be off by 2 more than likely. There is a Bass Pro Shop, Outlet Mall (if that's your thing), and the Braves (BOO!) minor league stadium less than a mile from my house. The Country Squire is only about 12-15 minutes away, and all sorts of great places to eat.

Let me know if you are coming.

Wayne, you and Quincy are always welcome any time (that goes for anyone else as well).
