Still in Sipp

We’ve been in Mississippi (The Sipp) for awhile now and I had a hankrin to write, so it’s time for you to Sit a Spell and enjoy!



The Southern Magnolia is Sipp’s state flower and tree.  It’s nice to see them in bloom while we’re here, there so purdy.



What is she doing?  I’m mimicking  playing the saxophone,  it’s the birthplace of music!

Across the street from the Campground is a park with a path and a dog park.  We’ve been going there daily for some “larking” and exercise.  There is also a large garden where they have planted some vegetables.  “Everything that suits your fancy.”




They have incentive signs to keep you movin and a groovin







Darn Tootin’ …….Cooper is having a blast running around in the dog park

With all the  strange and “catawampus” occurrences going on in the world


It has been really nice to see flowers blooming all around in The Miss.



Another place we’ve been going to is Vicksburg National Military Park


It has been a great place to walk, it’s hilly, and you learn along the way




Dave is mapping out our walk for today !



                                Well, I declare Dave is trying to negotiate with these two gentlemen.

                          They have great food in The Miss!  “Well butter my butt and call me a biscuit.”

One of our favorite stops for food is the Gumbo Pot.


I’ve had Po’boy, Seafood Gumbo, Okra, Jambalaya, shrimp & grits and our favorite blackened catfish and delicious bread pudding!

A few things I learned in Miss, is that:    Nabs are peanut butter  crackers,   Goobers are Peanuts, Root can mean a potato and a Slug is a burger!    As they say here “Well slap my hand and call me silly”


boiled peanuts

A local business that is very unique on the outside. They must have very “Thingamajigger” that you need.   From what I read it’s nice in the inside and has local products and they even serve food that is suppose to be very good.



I can’t imagine where this came from?  I think someone was upset and removed it instead of pulling weeds.


Last but not least.  Are we suppose to be impressed!  “Funny as all get out”

                                             Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö

“Well I bess Hus up cause it’s time to Skedaddle”   

I hope you enjoyed my Mississippi Slang, yes they do talk different down yonder

    Clearly, you have captured the essence of what I thought ‘the sipp’ would be like. Get out of there before it really starts to grow on you though! 😉 🤣
