"Stuff is eaten by dogs, broken by family and friends, sanded down by the wind, frozen by the mountains, lost by the prairie, burnt off by the sun, washed away by the rain. So you are left with dogs, family, friends, sun, rain, wind, prairie and mountains. What more do you want?"

I figured as long as I was doing a post on a Mississippi subject, I probably should add in some pictures that show the local atmosphere. Here is a picture of the statue to the Confederate war dead on the town square in Oxford, in front of the Lafayette (pronounced luh-FAY-ette) County courthouse. I had seen it a number of times before, but just noticed this time it wasn't erected until 1907.
Also on the town square is this life-sized bronze of William Faulkner, sitting on a bench in front of city hall as he was wont to do in life.
Here is a cotton field, with the bolls burst open and about ready to pick.
And finally here is some kudzu, the national plant of Mississippi.
