Dexter's Pt.2

Thanks to Francy Eagan, I learned that the Dexters (yesterdays' post) are buried in Immaculate Heart of Mary's Graveyard.  I was able to find their resting spots (above) and as you can see, Jack died in July 1988 and Regina two months afterwards.  

Francy also told me a funny story as to how Mrs. Dexter would hide money in the washing machine.  Jack once did a load of laundry with the money in the mix.  Francy said that the Dexters then had $100 bills with clothes pins up all around their bathroom to dry the bills out.  Guess you could say they were money laundering.

And speaking of "green" here's Booker T. covering his classic instrumental Green Onions along with Daryl and Company.  (For some background info on the song, check out Steve Cropper,  guitarist for the MG's, discussing how this was an "accidental" recording (click here.)
