Well hello, thought I would try to put some pictures on the blog, but things here are pretty slow, I might not be able to do that. Sherry and I got out and toured the closes towns today. We went to Castleberry, on the town limit signs they tout it as the 'Strawberry Capitol' of Alabama. This is one of the many towns that has lost most of the jobs and is honestly dead or dying. It probably was a neat little town with a short main street.
Oh, Sherry has been so sweet I did the treat this morning. I fixed a veggie omelet. What made breakfast so special this morning was I fixed hash-browns from Idaho and we had some 'Mixed Berry' jelly from no less than Mel's kitchen up in Wisconsin. The jelly was delicious like the Apple Carmel that we devoured very fast. So in the past weeks we have had Fish and jelly from friends in Wisconsin. What wonderful reminders of a great trip. Thanks you guys!!!
We also went to Ever Green, a little more active town and I love the way it is laid out. I think they ran the roads according to paths made before houses and roads were here. Just followed animal or Indian paths. (Now, if you have not traveled to Utah you cannot appreciate towns that are laid out with wide roads that have a distinct pattern, usually squares. The Mormon leaders required streets wide enough to do a 'u' turn with a double wagon I believe.) But the street layout in Evergreen, makes an interesting little town. Near here I spotted this old fire engine, amazing what youcan find out here on the back roads.
But by far the most interesting thing here is the folks we met. Below you see Sheila's mom & Dad, She is still as beautiful as the picture on Sheila's blog. I was mad with dad, since he is a little older than I and still has his hair. He did have one bruise near the hair line where me had misunderstood what mama said. Of course now he knows, he said.
We met at 'Fried Green Tomatoes' and ate a great chicken dinner and also had some fried green tomatoes. We have looked forward to this, too bad the weather was rainy but we still had a great visit.
Thanks for coming by the log.
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
