I was born on Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama. We left when I was six months old. My parents weren’t from Alabama. When dad retired from the army, we moved back from Hawaii in the 70’s. Last week, I celebrated my 54th birthday here for the first time in 25 years. I wonder what has changed in all those years.
Perhaps I was wondering the wrong question. It should be more about what has not changed. Before you leave my writings and think this is gonna get all crazy, let me say hang tight.
Here is my list of what has not changed.
1. Sweet Iced Tea can’t be beat.
2. Spring is so beautiful.
3. Life long friends are still here.
4. Governors will pay the price.
5. He will be forgiven in time.
6. BBQ is better here.
7. Chow chow is delicious. Look it up.
8. Neighbors will check on you.
9. God bless you has several definitions. They aren’t all good either.
As you can tell from my list food is top priority. If one can not entertain, food becomes the highlight. There is good and bad in that. I go home with a happy belly, but back to my hard routine of exercise.
I leave with a happy heart to have spent my time wisely. My photos for this post are all taken by me in Alabama. Home is not here any longer, but my life is forever changed for living here during formative teenage years and young adulthood. Happy Easter to everyone.
