Welcome to the big city. You can see how densely populated it is.
First sign of civilization.
Finally, the business district!
A considerately placed restroom
Northwest Mississippi Community College Administration Building
Strayhorn! The street where my church lives
Across the street from the stop sign we find the water tower. It says "SENATOBIA *FIVE STAR CITY*" I haven't been able to find out why it's the Five Star City or when or how it got that name, but in searching for the information, I found on Wikipedia that two movies that were partially filmed in Senatobia have been nominated for Academy Awards: The Client and The People vs. Larry Flynt.
I thought that when I got to this last half-mile stretch, I would be so excited that I would fly down the street. Well, I was wrong. I felt so exhausted that I told Bill that if it had been a day that wasn't the last day, I would have sat down in the middle of the sidewalk and told him to go get the car. And there were all these terrible obstacles like stairs on the sidewalks. Whoever thought of such a horrible thing? And if you look down the street, you can see that mountain rising up in the distance.
St. Gregory the Great! Hurrah! You can see Mary off on the left.
Mary and Joseph and the shepherds and wise men and ox and ass and camel and sheep and angels (there were three) were waiting for us--and Jesus.
It's so convenient to have a key to the door of the church.
And Jesus was waiting for us!
So that's it for now. Sometime soon we will head for Holy Spirit church in Hernando.
