Howdy ! ( scroll down for pictures and the video if you are impatient )
This post comes to you a little late. I was in Alabama this past May. I usually like to post sooner than this so nothing escapes me. As it is now my mind is a Steel Sieve . Luckily I like to explore with my eye and my belly so the memories take some hold. To be exact I did not spend my time in LA ( Lower Alabama ) . I spent it in Birmingham, Montgomery, Huntsville with an incursion in Columbus Georgia. Did I mention I drove through Auburn where I saw the Church Building I mean the stadium @ Auburn University. I will tell you that it reminded me of the Coliseum not in Los Angeles where I am writing from but the one in Rome . The pictures on the internets that I found do not do it justice. Up close the angles of seats will make a triple black diamond ski run look safe or frighten this guy ( probably not).
Uber. My drivers license expired and I could not rent a car so I used the UBER. Very impressed. Used it multiple times. Learned right off the bat to start a conversation with a stranger you ask them “Where do you go to church?” and “Who do you root for?” .
Henry Tile. They were already a customer but now it seems we are on the road to developing a partnership, perhaps not overnight but excited for the process!
Montgomery. I spent two nights maybe three downtown. Found a fun & tasty place to eat. I think I ate 4 meals plus had my first taste of Pimento & Cheese. Found Some Cool Tile ( below ) too. Explored the capitol & the water front ( below) . A lot of history. Not all good but important & not hidden which was different from where I come from where it seems bad memories are erased then forgotten which can lend it self to be repeated.
Boiled Peanuts . Bad Discovery
Back to Henry Tile. Before I get to the pictorial part of the post which in the end is simple to consume I want to thank them for the Hospitality not to mention them shuttling me around the state. Look forward to my next visit.
