It is hard to stop talking about the things you have seen just driving ‘round. I do not remember the name of the park south of the capitol, but it was in Alabama country. I counted about ten deer wandering around. I love to see large animals up close.
While I am talking about past experiences with animals, I gotta say this. Normally cats do not care if I talk to them. BUT last week on one of our walks I spoke to a cat lying in the grass and he roused up and walked with us a hundred feet. He and I had a good conversation before he said, “I gotta get back home.”or was it, “I need to stop here to see my neighbor?” But anyway he did not come home with us. BUT he was nice!
Back to Alabama. On the back roads I saw this bird house.
Actually I think it is an apartment complex. I remember seeing them all the time in the country at home. Not many people take the time now.
Then there is this:
My mind loves barns. The work center of many farmer’s lives. I never milked a cow (but my family did), I never rubbed a mule down after a hard day’s work in the fields, but my daddy did. You see, I can only imagine the work these building have seen.
Imagine the activity this little town saw when the fields were white. Now only one car, most of the buildings boarded up.
I am not a sports fan but I know some sounds of Alabama, Sheila ends every e-mail and comment with ‘Roll Tide’. I have heard ‘War Eagle’ from folks from Bama. I even knew the name Bear Bryant was famous worldwide Imma thinking.
Tomorrow I will go as far away from Bama as you can possibly drive and still be in the USA, next up. Alaska.
My latest Alabama find in Blogs, thanks to Sheila, is 'Sean of the South', If Shawn doesn't yank your chain, it's broke! The dude is positive about people.
The Tuskegee Airmen, the first African-American flying unit in the U.S. military, were trained in Alabama. Their accomplished combat record, including the accumulation of more than 850 medals, was an important factor in President Truman’s decision to desegregate armed forces in 1948.
The Saturn V rocket that made it possible for humans to land on the moon was designed in Huntsville, Alabama.
