I want to tell you about a fun prize I won, but first, this has been making its way around the internet, and for those of you who haven’t seen it, I thought I’d start your weekend off in an interesting way by showing you . . . a wedding cake made of corn […]
I’m not in the Eastern Shore Camera Club, but everyone else in my family is. That’s why I got to tag along with the group on their sunset cruise of the Mobile River which included an up close look at something I’ve always wanted to see — the Port of Mobile. The […]
Eeks! I just got to chapter 52! * Mary Kay Andrews has hit it out of the park with her latest book, “Beach Town,” due to hit stores May 19th, just in time for Memorial Day Weekend. Not only does it mention many of the familiar Gulf Coast towns where I was raised (and pokes […]
Yes, that was me you saw a week ago, zipping around town on the back of a Harley Davidson motorcycle. I know, I can barely believe it myself. I was smiling and laughing so much, I thought I would surely end up with a mouth full of bugs. All was fine though, with Dr. […]
View from his dorm room. It was even prettier in the fall. For Mother’s Day, we left Fairhope and zipped up to Birmingham to spend time with college boy before he goes straight to his summer job in Mississippi. That’s right, Not. Even. Coming. Home. To. See. Me. At. All. * The nerve. We helped […]
I’ll be taking off a few days to spend some time with my two favorite children for Mother’s Day. Here’s a replay of a previous post about things our Southern Mamas said . . . or Mothers anywhere, for that matter (well, except for the grits thing!). Happy Mother’s Day to my Mom (and also […]

I finally figured out she was referring to my invitation to speak to S.E.L.F., or “Service, Education, Leadership and Fellowship” which is a marvelous group of ladies here on the Eastern Shore. Their […]
Several years ago, I discovered hand bound books from E. Lawrence, Ltd. They were absolutely gorgeous, and very expensive. ($385 for the Eiffel Tower set). I thought about it for a while, and although my version isn’t nearly as artistic or a long-term keepsake like the real thing, I think I’ve found an easy way […]
I think acting is fun, as long as I can improvise and don’t have to work on memorizing all those fussy lines. So I guess it’s a good thing I didn’t audition for a role in Theatre 98’s new production of “This Day and Age,” because the dialog-rich play had lines flying back and forth […]
Even though it’s a blurry photo from the 1920’s, you can see these early Fairhopers (yes, that’s correct. Not Fairhopians or Fairhopites) performing a bit of Shakespeare in one of the gullies which formed a natural amphitheater. These performances were also held high atop the bluff, overlooking Mobile Bay. If only those early actors […]
