My dad is taking a nap and it's hard to concentrate. His snoring sounds like a brass and wind section. The tuba and trombone take turns dropping an accented bass note while the winds follow up with a low eery glissando phrase. It's reminiscent of the first track on Charles Mingus' "The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady" album.
We're hopeful that morning commuters are swayed to come on over to the screening and blow off the city-wide furniture convention and another popular event, called 'Taste of Tupelo.' I cross my fingers that we get some actual bodies into the screenings. But not just any bodies, ones with a sense of humor!
We went over to the theater to check it out. The Link Centre is a converted church that is now a community gathering place for film, music and other family activities.
Goodbye, Tupelo. Onto our next two stops in Mississippi...
