(Sorry if this thing shows up many times.)
Something there is about a barn. This one is in the back of the RV park. When Sherry called about staying here the lady said just turn in the park and go around the barn. I knew this was gonna be a nice spot.
Just up the road is cows and horses.
This is down town Evergreen at the peak business hour. I'd bet this was a nice bustling small town at one time.
OH, wow just down the road from the RV park I spotted this old fire engine. It reminded me of the Key WEst fire engines, painted Lime Green. There were also tractors up the hill.
WE are parked right on the county road #6. That is us in the corner lot.
Oh what treasures Alabama holds. We passed a 1955 Rambler and an A model just before we came to these. On the left is a '39 Cadillac and the right is a 1936 Oldsmobile.Olds is $3500 or best offer. Lotta work sitting there waiting to happen folks.
And then there is the town of Andalusia, Alabama. Takes it's name from a horse that the Creek Indian Chief rode to escape the white soldiers. It was said to be the fastest horse around. Neat, living in a town named after a horse. This is a mural down town, just up from the Dairy Queen.
All our married life, Sherry has gotten tired of hearing me say, Look over there at that yellow thing, I want it. I always loved Yellow Gear, I only had one, Vondale found me a Yellow Ford Back hoe. I loved that thing. But I never knew where yellow gear went when it died, Well on US84 near
Andalusia there is this yellow gear grave yard.
But most of all here in Alabama, we got to meet Jean and Grover. When you read Sheila, over at Southern Comfort (Yeah, the one who does all the snow dances, and subs as a rain dancer sometime.) Look on the side bar at the young girl and her man on the side bar. That's right, the one who looks like a cute Mouseketeer. That is Jean, she is still a beautiful lady, and you can still see the mouseketeer in her (and maybe a little cat!). I did not like Grover. He is older than I am and has much more hair. hahahahahahaha! They were both very nice and we were privileged to get to know them.
So in the morning we leave Alabama and head for Mississippi and a long awaited reunion with troops we were stationed with in 1958-1960, and fellow workers in the church there. Our pastor will be there from that time, he is in his 80's now.
Thanks for coming this way.
Remember life is great, enjoy it and don't rush through it.
We are the human race, sometimes we think we should rush to the end, but not so. You will get there soon enough, believe me.
