He smiles and says, "Well, how long will it take her to get it?"
I looked at him blankly.
He says, "Cause I've already got mine", and opens his hand and there it was! The crowd erupts into laughter and applause.

Crocodile Dundee ain't got nuthin' on that guy.

Did they tell you about the body they found in the chimney? And the baby that was killed?.....
If there are ghosts anywhere in America, they are in Kings Tavern.
Yes. I heard about the body or bodies in the chimney! Found them not that long ago actually. 1933. According to the nomination form the violence that occurred in that tavern is legendary. You're right. If there are ghosts in America, they live in Kings Tavern.

Great story about the head chef.

If you have not been, and you have an interest in American history, the word is, "Go." Natchez was once the premier river town in America. The book "Devil's Backbone" chronicles the story of the trail ("trace") that runs from Natchez to Nashville.
Natchez was once - in 1860 - the second richest city in America, after New York. Many of the old mansions are available for tour, and some of the people hosting the tours can tell you of when the old homes used to stand open and mostly abandoned, allowing the local children to play in and around them.
The old river front, called Natchez Under The Hill, is still there and many of the old buildings are now bars and restaurants.
It's a wonderful place for adults, but there are no zip lines, no amusement park rides, no carnival atmosphere. Natchez, unfortunately, is dying a slow death. The last industries have left. It was bypassed by the freeway system after Gov Huey Long, LA, cut it off from international commerce by building a bridge that was too low for the ocean freighter traffic. Gov Long wanted ships to off-load in Baton Rouge, and he made it happen, too!
Yes, Natchez is on my list of places to visit.
