It was good to sleep in on Tuesday. I spent a lazy morning at the apartment before joining Jim for lunch downstairs where the City of Jonesboro was hosting the meal. I decided to spend the afternoon shopping. We began our evening with the Turkish Awards Dinner. We visited with our Turkish friends and enjoyed tasting some of the Turkish dishes we enjoyed during our trip to Turkey last June. Next we left to visit the library of a rare book collector and learn about rare books and collecting. Later we had dinner at Arthur's Steak House with members of the term limited Senate members ("The Senior Caucus").

Friday the Cross County Museum hosted Eat and Greet. The event was in honor of the 60th anniversary of Jack and Esther Killough. The guests enjoyed the delicious food prepared by Esther while viewing the exhibits and catching up on local events with old friends and new.
