I made Dale pull over to get some pics. Check out the rest here.
We went to Memphis last weekend to see my mom and to lend some support to my stepdad, Gary. Along the way, we opted to take I-55, which cuts right through St. Louis. Unable to resist the chance to stop and see the Gateway Arch up close, we pulled off the highway and Dale took a few shots of the landmark arch.
I was in Memphis last weekend and saw one of the best roadside attractions I’ve stumbled upon in years! This takes the cake, people! This is the Statue of Liberation through Christ aka The Lord’s Lady Liberty. For a complete FAQ click here.
The statue is rife with amusingly heavy-handed symbolism, including my personal favorite: The Lord’s Lady Liberty is shedding a tear. “THE TEAR represents Lady Liberation’s despair over America’s rapid decline from its Judeo-Christian values. She weeps for our nation’s self-destruction as the protective hand of God is removed. Yet, she realizes that there is still hope for America if we return to God through Jesus Christ.”
Thanks so much to everyone who checked in to see how my mom was doing. She got out of the hospital yesterday and is still weak but much improved.
She had an infection coupled with sleep deprivation that had her a bit delusional! Freaky but now she’s home and just exhausted. Poor thing just wants to sleep (and eat–her appetite is back, thank goodness).
Again, thanks SO MUCH to everyone who wrote/called. We appreciate it very much!
We took a quick trip down to Memphis to see her last weekend. We’ll post pictures of the things we saw along the way this weekend.
Love you all!
