  1. You are such a wonderful writer. I sure hope the town of Fairhope recognizes you. I did a few of these and I am in Georgia and not a sports fan.

  2. On my last trip to the coast I stopped at Priester’s on I-65 and my husband has been decorating the tree in shorts. I live close enough and visit often enough to be a native!

    Great post!
