A Rippin' Great Time in Little Rock....

It seemed like all of Little Rock, Arkansas turned out to roast and toast Coach Charles Ripley, with the proceeds benefiting Arkansas Baptist College. Charles & I had a blast, declaring the Bar-b-que amazing, topped only by the down home (yes, Arkansas was MY home) hospitality of our hosts and everyone we met. For those of you who have never heard of Coach Rip, he has dedicated his life to coaching, including legends Derek Fisher (Los Angeles Lakers), Houston Nutt (U. of Mississippi head football coach), and Sidney Moncrief, NBA assistant coach. Including a great live and silent auction (and what would an auction be without a pair of puppies?), we had a wonderful time. Might we suggest, when you stay in Little Rock, you pamper yourself at the Capital! I want the recipe for those home baked soda crackers, y'all!
