Sunday

Aren't Sundays just Great!!!!


Just a Lazy Sunday the last day of vacation before going back to work Monday.




I did finish this quilt for my grandson Parker .I am working on two more projects that I need to get done before his arrival in September.


After Church we went to my husband's brothers house for a cookout then went for a ride on the 4 wheeler and enjoyed some of the Kentucky countryside.

I felt like the redneck paparazzi on the back of that 4wheeler snapping pictures LOL:)

Peabody Hotel Memphis

This Past week my husband and I took a trip to Memphis for a short and needed vacation.While there we visited the historic Peabody Hotel.I had heard of the ducks that lived in the lobby fountain ,so I got on line and read the story of the Peabody Ducks.You can read about the ducks at http://peabodymemphis.com/.



This is a picture of the fountain from the balcony.Look at all of the people that come just to see the ducks,and this picture was taken 30 minutes before the ducks arrived.The lady at the bar in the lobby told us people start to gather 1 hour before trying to secure a "good" spot.


Closeup of the ducks there are four hens and one drake.



Two "Old Ducks" that are not in the fountain....


video

Here is a short video of the ducks leaving the fountain .Notice all of the people,the balcony goes all the way around the lobby and it is packed also.As you watch the video notice that after the ducks ge about halfway down the carpet they stop and shake water all over the kids sitting on the carpet.

video
The video her shows the ducks arriving from there home on the roof on the Peabody.When they arrive in the lobby via the elevator they walk down the red carpet and walk up the steps and hop in the fountain.

The Lady in the black dress with the Duck Master is the Honorary Duck Master for the day.You see for a certain amount of $$$$$$$ you can be a Honorary Duck Master.This was her Wedding Day and her wedding was going to be at Graceland(Elvis's Home) later in the day.It was going to be the first Jewish wedding ever at the Graceland Chapel,(I got the scoop from her sister that was standing beside me taking pictures).
I will have more pictures tommorrow of our trip to Memphis.
