Overheard, Saturday

In patrician Southern drawl, one steely haired matron introduces herself to another (in the parlor of the above house):

"It's so nice to meet you. I live in the house where Jefferson Davis died,
you know."

(many thanks again to the eminently gracious and entertaining Nathan of Laurel Street for a wonderful tour of uptown this weekend)

I love those ladies.

In Vicksburg you’re nobody unless you live in house with a cannon ball lodged in the wall somewhere and you have to lead guests around showing it off.
