There is a casino here, The Isle, which we enjoyed twice. As usual, AJ made up at the tables for what I lost at the slots. I know - stupid to do, but you never know when you are going to hit a jackpot. I am a gambler at heart.
The purpose for the visit was the Erlbacher Gerhart Sock Knitting Machine Crank In and Open House, which was attended by about 175 people from around the US and Canada. This was my second crank in, and I find it fascinating to finally meet the people with whom I have been messaging on Ravelry for years. They are acquaintances from numerous cyber interchanges and it is just a lot of fun to finally put faces with those folks.

There were workshops on Thursday and demonstrations on Friday and Saturday. I learned a lot and hope to blog more about those events in the future.
Today we are driving to Memphis, TN for a few days. We are going to see the Peabody ducks and Graceland, Ribs at the Rendezvous and some good jazz on Beale street are also on the docket. More later - from Memphis.
