GORUCK is full of dog lovers, so when we heard from far and wide about Wildrose and its passion for breeding and training the ‘finest gundogs in America’, we had to check it out. Blake gave us a full tour and we were thoroughly impressed with the trainers (Patrick pictured with Duke), the property and, of course, the labs.
Taylor Grocery is worth the drive, and the wait, from wherever you are. The catfish is a plenty good fish for anybody – so said Mark Twain – and while we agree, this is the best we’ve had, anywhere. Mississippi blackened followed by homemade peach cobbler (our friendly neighbors at dinner said “you can’t go wrong with that in the south”), and an atmosphere full of happy families and kids eating ice cream while a trio sings away, full of audience participation. We were happy to sing along, sign the guest books and the wall, and wish there were more places with such charm, and such customs.
