4th of July Fun with Mark Twain

Spent July 3rd in Hannibal, Missouri, hometown of Samuel Clemens aka Mark Twain. One of the many museums devoted to all things Twain showcased First Editions of several of his works. 

I also had the pleasure of meeting Tom Sawyer and Becky Thatcher.

Cruises on the riverboat, Mark Twain, were also quite popular.

For the athletic ones in the crowd, there was a Mud Volleyball competition. The players were serious about the game and the spectators were equally as serious about the mud. It was a spectacle that Tom and Huck would have been proud in which to participate.

We capped off the weekend with a fabulous fireworks display.

I didn't do much writing or reading, but certainly was inspired by a lot of the sights!

Awesome content! I have never seen the Mud Volleyball competition before. I'm glad to read about this competition and I'll share it with my face book friends. Thanks for informing me.

Gaven Bobby, Thanks for checking out the website and blog. If you get a chance to read the excerpt of my novel, Man of the House, please let me know what you think. I could have watched the Mud Volleyball all day. However, I'm not sure I could have held back from wanting to get in the mud myself. They looked like they were having a great time. Unfortunately, I would have had to walk home as no one would have let me get into their car. :( Tammy

One of my uncle who use to help me in my works always wanted to go for this training for most of the time. He has a good experience as a teacher,suggest him this opportunity. It'd an amazing museums and places you have visited here.
