Thank you Vance!

I live quite far from home these days. Your articles are a delightful lifeline to a very happy time in my life. All my life I remember driving past the old ranch and enjoying its exotic flavor. Like so many wonderful things in the Memphis of my youth, it is now gone. But my it is unforgettable.
