Welcome to my blog, where I write about my perfect life . . . BAAHAHAHAHhahahaha! Whew! I need to catch my breath now!
I started writing this blog in the summer of 2012 and after only a few months was offered a column in our local newspaper. I thought it was a “lifestyle” column, but turns out, it won a humor award from the Alabama Press Association. Who knew my life was such a hoot?
I also have a column that appears in the Sunday edition of the Press Register in Mobile, Alabama, Birmingham News and The Huntsville Times. You can also find my columns on Al.com’s digital site. You can read more about my column here.
I also love cheese straws and have been known to eat my weight in the best Southern snack ever.
I love to dress up in costumes and help with Vacation Bible School. Eating chickens is good, but holding them would freak me out, so that’s why I have a chicken puppet. Goats are okay because they won’t peck your eyes out. The long black wig was groovy in a New Testament sort of way.
If I had one wish that couldn’t be related to world peace, I would wish that all ladies would still dress like this every single day – which now that I think about it, may be related to world peace after all.
I was born in Florala, Alabama and have spent most of my life living in pretty cities along the Gulf Coast. My husband and I lived in the Atlanta area for a few years after we were first married, but I felt landlocked and cried until I could get back to be closer to the Gulf. We’ve now lived in Fairhope for 17 years and have watched our boys grow up literally slinging fishing poles over their shoulders and walking down to Mobile Bay. One boy even looked a little like Opie, so it’s been a total Mayberry experience.
I’ve met some of the nicest people from all over the world through this blog and I thank all of you for taking the time to read. Although my viewpoint is from my life in a small Southern town, I’ve learned that people everywhere love their families, dogs, good food, God and a good story . . . not necessarily in that order, of course.
I’d love to hear from you in the comment section or through email. I try to answer everyone, but the messages are sometimes accidentally dumped in the cavernous junk folder, but that is by no means a reflection of my sincere fondness for you.
