Would you like to know what’s new in the shops of Fairhope prior to First Friday Artwalk? You’ve come to the right place. Beginning in July, I will share a post that has a list of brand new items or events to enjoy during First Friday Artwalk and the following month. While sipping wine and nibbling goodies made by shop owners, you just might find the perfect pair of shoes or a dress for a summer wedding.
Sharing the Secrets of Preserving Southern Racism
I have just finished reading The Letter I Never Sent Harper Lee . In this “letter” the author compares the racism of the 1930’s with that of today and says it is no different. I am outraged that a Ohioan who claims Birmingham, Alabama is her home is so cold and heartless in her writing about our state.
I read a little quip recently that said, “All things are possible with coffee and mascara!” I decided to update it a little. “Southern life is easier with a little wine and waterproof mascara!” With summer fast approaching, you just never know when you might need to enjoy a glass of sangria near a body of water!
Sometime around 1993 I accompanied my husband to a work conference at the Grand Hotel in Point Clear, AL. My son was about 8 years old and my daughter only one. I had the rare opportunity of traveling with 007 while the kids got a little bonding time with their Granna.
We had a wonderful time of visiting with co-workers and enjoying the grounds of such a historic hotel. But, on one particular day while J was conferencing, I saw our family’s future on the face of a clock.
A True Southern Gentleman
A true southern gentleman possesses several qualities. He is well-mannered, has a firm handshake and a great sense of humor. He is friendly, doesn’t use profanity in the presence of a lady and knows how to make those around him feel special. And he is never the victim. Add to this the ability to bring life to a blank canvas and you have just been introduced to John Witzel Walters.
