Shack, sweet shack

sky_shack

Linda is very proud that she found the Shack Up Inn, which has been our headquarters while we explore Clarksdale and Greenville, Mississippi. The other choices, the Riverview Hotel and a Motel 8, were a little too authentic and too generic, respectively.

We are installed in the Sky Shack, which sits atop the ‘lobby’ of the Shack Up and provides a sitting and work/dining area as well as a bedroom. The room is made completely of recycled doors, planks, corrugated tin, copper sheet and who knows what else, and the furnishings are 100% Salvation Army rejects.

Linda has been writing copy, phone-conferencing and endlessly checking her Blackberry as we’ve made our way through the Delta, and the Sky Shack, with a very strong WiFi signal despite being in a corrugated tin building, has been a good office for us as well as her.  Our hosts and their crew are currently renovating some new sharecropper shacks, trucked in from other plantations…

    Hard to appreciate the building materials & the spouse’s dedication in such small photos. Blogspot lets U go up to 1600×1600. Which I could be as committed to my boss’s vision.
