Daily Tidbit for Thursday: And it is Happy Birthday Sing-a-Long time for Jason Lunceford, Joyce Harris and Benjamin Kossman! So call them up and sing them a rousing rendition of the Happy Birthday song. Extra points if you can sing them the Beatle version!

Happenings around town this weekend begin with an Open House at Presbyterian Day School 944 Catalpa Street at 6:00 p.m. tonight.

Of course the big news this weekend is the Clarksdale Film Festival underway in Downtown Clarksdale. For a listing of all the events, click on the Clarksdale Film Festival photo above or just Click Here.
However, not to be forgotten is the 36th Birthday celebration of the Delta Blues Museum! That’s right, our little ole music museum (i.e., The oldest music museum in the entire State of Mississippi!) turns sweet 36 this weekend. Go by and celebrate tomorrow with a cupcake (while supplies last.) Saturday, the award-winning Delta Blues Museum Band and some very special guests will perform for you from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. in the Gallery of the Museum. NOTE: this event is free for Clarksdale residents; film festival attendees and AKA sorority members will receive a discounted admission.
Thank you to all who wished and prayed for our recovery from the latest round of surgery we have gone through. This may be the last as things seem to be functioning at some level or other now. For those of you keeping up with “the recovery” Joanie “The Torturer” Tedford has had us using a cane at the Clarksdale Physical Therapy offices/gym. Who would have thought that only three months ago we were in a wheelchair and now we are practicing with a cane? Kudos go to Joanie and her staff.
Anyway, looking for a Thursday Tirade? We don’t have one. We are kind of happy this week, but, hey, we are sure that one of you will do something that will tick us off before next week. You can just about count on that!
However, if we were going to be ticked off about something today, the video of last Monday’s meeting of the Mayor and Board of Commissioners could have done the trick. You can still watch it online Just click on the word VIDEO above this blog.
Well, as they say, if the Lord is willing, the creek don’t rise and Joanie doesn’t work us to death, we will be back Monday with some more of what is happening in Clarksdale! Nathan, of course, will update you tomorrow. Got an insight on something that is scheduled to happen? Let us know and we will talk about you nicely for a day or two! Maybe! lol
