Mississippi Blues Trail

We needed to find a WalMart, Ken needed prescriptions refilled and Clarksdale 30 miles south had one and it is on the Mississippi Blues Trail so we drove down. The Delta Blues Museum is there plus several blues joints. There was no photography allowed in the museum so I took this from their brochure, it is a reconstruction of Muddy Waters log cabin which was on Stovall Plantation. Clarksdale is known as the "Birthplace of the Blues" and is a mecca for blues enthusiasts from around the world. The ticket agent at the museum was from Wichita KS and moved there because he played the blues. We decided to have lunch at Ground Zero a blues club and restaurant owned by Bill Luckett, and actor and local resident Morgan Freeman and Howard Stovall. I had a down-home plate lunch and Ken a BLT. Everything is covered with signatures of patrons, I mean everything but the food.
We then visited a couple of eccentric shops filled with expensive folkart. I liked the bleach bottles covered with fabric scraps, beads and bits and pieces of stuff, the price tag was $100, I think I read it right. I should get busy, huh!!!
