I lived in Alabama for 2 years while I was in the Army — much more on that coming. I always found it to be too hot and too humid. Except for one no two afternoons. One was on a lake and one was in the hills. A horse trough for ice and filled with beer et al. Always room to throw your 12 pack in.

My bride and I didn’t know anybody (we’d only been married about a month — my draft notice came on the Monday after our wedding). Gotta love the Army. I don’t but more on that also.

Thanks for writing. The food up here, about an hours1 and 1/2 from Canada

just means we have to have family over more in the house.

We live in a small two-bedroom apartment now so that doesn’t happen much now either.

Geez, I’m getting depressed. I am going to hang up now.

Talk about liking food!

Berkely our Landseer Newfoundland (she is bashful with her white legs today) and Mango our Flame Point Ragdoll are always ready for food!

Lacie our Chocolate Point Ragdoll had a snit on today so she didn’t want to come out and play.

Maybe another time.

Thanks for writing.
