Meet Stax, my little snowman I made during the very first snow of the winter, so named because I was visiting the Stax Museum of American Soul Music in Memphis when big fluffy snowflakes started coming down! I made a bigger one named Rufus after one of the artists for the Memphis label. The recording studio in downtown Memphis made such artists as Rufus Thomas, Otis Redding, and Johnnie Taylor famous but went out of business about 30 years ago. It's now a museum.
Because of the quickly-approaching inclement weather, we didn't get to spend much time at the only museum in the world dedicated to soul music, so I named some snowmen in its honor once I made it home safely!
