Third and last on Memphis
The woman who worked here was so clueless. She couldn't get the charge machine to work for 30 minutes and seemed to have stopped trying to keep up with changes in the world.
My step mother Phyllis keeps up! She is probably older than this hapless clerk but so much more with it.
When we were in Memphis we went to this wonderfully funky coffee shop and I found these two items for Phyllis for her birthday present.
She likes the bohemian look, I hope she likes them and I hope she isn't reading this blog today. :)
Here is a picture of the oldest cafe in Memphis.
It has seen the railroads dry up and it is located right across from the railroad station.
It survived the riots of 1968 in Memphis.
It has adapted and it's cool in a classic way.
It has the best sweet potato pancakes and was featured on the Food Network. Blacks and white eat and work side by side in a city that used to have terrible racial tension.
It has adapted and thrived. It knows how to operate its own equipment!
Life lessons for how we quilt and how we live.
