Me and The Boy are Alabama bound but...we are not going to fetch our woman. She will be here at the house enjoying a few days without her mens. That's what she claims anyhow...we know better.
What woman really wants time to herself?
So while she's being miserable without us...me and The Boy and Daddy will be in Birmingham to watch the Gators play East Carolina. Despite another abysmal season the Gators managed to get an invite to a bowl...the glamorous Birmingham Bowl.
Alarms are set for 5am...we will be on the road by six. We'll be flying through Meridian by 7:00. You know Meridian Mississippi....ruthlessly brunt to the ground by the Yankees...home of Jimmy Rodgers.
Then on past Cuba...Livingston...Eutaw...to Tuscaloosa where we will be stopping to visit Bryant Denny Stadium . I may have over sold that stop...as The Boy asked me about throwing the ball on the actual field.
Birmingham is next...and it's Art Museum which I can tell he's underestimating. Once he gets a look at a full suit of Samurai armor...we'll be fine. Besides the next stop is Full Moon ...so, even if he doesn't dig Ida Kolmeyer...
I know he'll dig the ribs.*
* I know you rabbits don't care but trust me on this one....
**Skynyrd, of course, is not from Alabama but from the Jacksonville Fl. area...where my brother lives...where my Moma grew up...Gator territory.
