Nick and Alex finished up their time in Jackson at a bon-fire weenie roast hosted by one of their most dedicated participants, Jody Gore. There was music, s’mores and 20ft bamboo poles for roasting the weenies. Later they visited the home of two participants, Lucky and Debi Osborne, and they were each given bullets shot by Confederate Soldiers during the Civil War. That last night, plus the 930 Blues Club, fried pickles, copious amounts of catfish, and lots of great interviews will provide the facilitators with wonderful memories of their time in Mississippi.
Participant Doreene McCoy, featured in an earlier blog with her sister, Evelyn Palmour, stops by to wish the facilitators fare well.
