My trip "HOME"
This weekend I had the extreme pleasure of going home. A friend of mine at our church had a class reunion in Talladega, Alabama. She did not want to travel alone and invited me to travel with her. My parents were very happy to hear this and made arrangement for a fun filled weekend. We arrived there on Friday and went out to eat with my daddy. For those of you who really know me, you know I really like to eat!! Birmingham has some wonderful eating establishments and all I could think of was getting to sample some good old Alabama cuisine. Guess where my daddy chose to dine? Captain D's!!!!! I mean how much more exotic can you get? Anyway, Will scarfed down a pile of macaroni and cheese and another shrimpy, greasy pasta conglomeration. We got back to their house and were pooped. Will and I got into the bed around 10:00. I was exhausted and we got all snuggled in. Will turns toward me and throws up that disgusting dinner he consumed earlier. My parents were sound asleep so I had to take all of the covers off the bed and wash them. I put Will on the couch in their den and I wound up in the most UNCOMFORTABLE chair I have ever sat in, much less slept in. I actually did not sleep. My brother came about 7:oo Saturday morning to take us bowling. (just what I wanted to do after a night of shrimpy vomit and no sleep). We did have a great time though. After bowling we went up to Vulcan Park. Vulcan is the big statue that you can see when you approach the city of Birmingham. We had such a great time. It was wonderful getting a chance to catch up with my brothers, parents, neices and nephew. I will leave by quoting Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz---"There's no place like home."
P.S. Check out the picture of Will with some of my neices and nephews- He was wearing my rhinestone sunglasses and looked like Elton John. Also, I have a new camera and I'm not sure why it printed the wrong date????
