Heading North to Cheer on the Tar Heels

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

I’m on the road again, this time heading towards the east coast. A trip from Baton Rouge start on Wednesday, made my way up Highway 61 to my old hometown of Ferriday. I had the pleasure of joining current Secretary of State Jay Dardenne, in dedicating a new state music auditorium, adjacent to the Delta Music Museum in Ferriday. Former country singer of the year Mickey Gilly joined the festivities, and put on a concert following the dedication.

I’m traveling for the next few days now, heading toward Charlotte, North Carolina, for the Atlantic Coast conference basketball championships. My alma mater, the University of North Carolina, is the number one ranked college basketball team in the country. I will be attending four days of basketball in Charlotte, and of course cheering on the Tar Heels.

Then it is up to Grandfather Mountain, northeast of Asheville, for some skiing, fly fishing, and bluegrass music. Are you envious of me? Keep an eye on my blog, and I will pass on some reports from the road from time to time.

    The Tarheels under their coach of only one year Butch Davis opens in Chapel Hill against the McNeese State Football University Cowboys this coming season. The cowboys have noting to lose and all to gain, and just the opposite for Butch Davis and his Tarhees. It is a shame that they don’t play basketball in North Carolina.

    One day I’ll learn to proofread my postings. Yes, it’s the Cowboys vs. the Tarheels.
