oh oh I also saw Rufus Thomas on Beale early on morning , no funky chxn
I used to work at a bar on Beale Street and Rufus and his wife used to come in all the time, sit at a table for forever and order unsweet tea. One time I thought he was grabbing my ass but he was just grabbing my bar towel out of my back pocket to clean up the tea he'd knocked over. Very sweet old man.
I also helped Carla Thomas string beads sometimes at a crappy bead store job I had. She was equally nice, but always put the necklaces she'd made on layaway and never paid for them. It was weird cos I'm sure the manager would have just been like, "OMG, you're Carla Thomas, just take the necklaces already."
