Happy Anniversary to the Plunk Chronicles

This is the 300th post on The Plunk Chronicles – and people from all over are still coming here to read. Wow. Thank you for spending a little time here. We strive to make your stop at the Chronicles an enjoyable few minutes.

This year we added the search box at the top right. In addition to using the labels tag at the right to locate the item you’re looking for, you can also type a name, location or subject into the search box and get a list of articles from our blog. We also changed the blog’s header a little to freshen up the page.

So today, I’m providing links to three of my favorite articles from the 300, my personal golden oldies. Besides entertaining myself with these choices, I think they represent the wide array of topics that we touch on here. Check out the labels to the right. We might tell you about the historical origins of an area or where we had a great Memphis dinner. Ya just never know.

Nightlife in the ‘60s – Here are a few choice stories from Mike’s perspective on the Memphis music scene.

Life as Lucy Part III – This series started when Mike observed that certain aspects of my life looked a lot like I Love Lucy episodes. Picture Lucy and Ricky in this one.

Yellow Fever in Memphis – This one is at the top of my list because it takes a personal event that broadens into a piece about a dramatic, horrific period in Memphis history. It’s the same approach we used in The Irish Branch of the Family.

As we did with the Chronicles’ 200th post, we invite your feedback on keeping this blog something that you want to visit. What do you want more of? Less of? We’ve listened to your previous comments and hope to hear more from you.

In the meantime, happy reading.
