When you have grown up in the Delta, part of your heart always remains there.  My wife, Mary Ann, and I have lived in San Jose, CA for 39 years.  We love it here because of the great weather and our local Chinese Community, but I still enjoy getting back to Memphis and Little Rock to visit family and friends.  We also have Chinese friends in the San Francisco Bay Area who have roots in the Delta.  It's always a special time when we get to visit with them and talk about the good old days back in the Delta.

To paraphrase a well-known expression, you can take the boy (or girl) out of the Delta, but you can't take the Delta out of the boy (or girl)!
