walking in Memphis
« on: July 20, 2006, 01:04:26 AM »
I sit here watching a lively episode of Living Single and smoking what is now a celebratory cigar…My sister had her baby, finally and he is the cutest thing ever.  His FULL name is Matthew Riley Lamont Tallman…..but they are calling him Riley. He was a full 10 lbs and she had him via C Section.  I am so very happy for her and her husband Matt, but in the same phone call that gave me this wonderful news they also blasted me with some sad news. In a few months Matt has to go to Iraq =(  He was already in Afghanistan for most of my neice, Sandie’s life and now this…  He seems to be taking it fairly well so I decided not to bring it up too much.  He said that it gives him even more reason to bask in the happiness they are feeling right now as a family.

This afternoon I was at the Sleeping Bear Dunes for a bit and I got another phone call from a close friend of mine. Apparently he is moving to Memphis and wants me to go down with him  to look for apartments and such…so I’m excited for our little road trip! Thus my constant playing of “Walking in Memphis” by Marc Cohen which is already a good song, but now has some relevance in my own life. 

Just a little update from the peanut gallery!

Hey Jenn,

If you need any help let me know. I'm a Memphis boy and know this city like the back of my hand. I'll show you where all the bodies are buried.

Stay cool,
Hal ;D

let me be the first.... 'AAAWWWWW'.  :-*    very cute, even though he seems to be wearing a Karate Robe.
babies in general really creep me out, maybe because you can see their brain pulsating through the top of  their skull.... Still, you cant help but wonder how we look through their eyes, and how they literally have the whole world ahead of them....oh ya and the free pass to the titty bar is good too.

aw thank you all! I will definately let you guys know when I head down there! Hahahah I WISH he was wearing a karate robe! I just sent them a package with a little Led Zepplin, The Who, Bob Marley and Janis Joplin shirts and onesies! haha And a little Beatles shirt for my niece!  I'm sure my sister and brother in law will love that since they are country fans. MUAH HA HA

Aunt Jenn,

Congratulations on your cute new nephew.

I'll keep your brother-in-law in my thoughts. Sorry to hear he has to go to Iraq.

You'll love Memphis. I lived there for six years. I believe it to be one of the best cities in the south, and definitely is chock full of character per sq. mile. Lately I can't stop listening to Memphis Soul music. Amazing.

May Otis Redding be an angel at your side :)
