I hadn’t noticed but it could be. A very photogenic place.

Definitely is Ken – don’t you remember all the alarms going off when we got too close!! Willie Seaberry the owner is a top man – drives a tractor all day on the plantation then returns in the evening to run the juke. He showed us round and was so proud of the place. It is true American National Heritage. I recommend anyone in Mississippi makes this a “Must see” on their trip as there are very few of these places left.

Got the T-shirt! But don’t tell anyone I’ve never been there – not that I wouldn’t like to.

I did notice that you were wearing it at our festival Li…
You’ll have to do it in reverse now – “Got the T shirt, Been there, Seen It” and come with us to Mississippi!

Ian took a brilliant picture of Willie himself. However, clearly I don’t have that in my Flickr set.
