Cotton Fields – Nov. 2013
In speaking of a man on the move, E.B. White says,
…he leaves something vital, it seems to me, and starts his new life, somewhat less encrusted, like a lobster that has shed its skin and is for a time soft and vulnerable.
I’d like to think I shed myself of few things when we moved and that in some ways I am softer. I don’t want to grow old and crusty again.
Talk about Southern Hospitality! I experienced this first hand in Target, of all places. I’m used to Publix, my fav grocery store, being full of friendly and helpful employees. But Target? I had no less than six people ask me how I was doing and if I was finding everything okay. One young girl even came back a second time to check on me. But, it wasn’t just Target. When I entered Kohl’s I was greeted my three pleasant workers. And at Babies R Us – same thing.
It could just be that these particular stores had excellent managers and good training procedures. But, I never got this kind of service in Jacksonville, except, of course, at Publix. It sure makes transitioning easier!

We ate here on our trip to Birmingham in early March and it was fantastic! I got the Strawberry Banana & Walnut Waffle – it was delicious! It is made with fresh strawberries, bananas and walnuts topped with powdered sugar and whipped cream. There is so much on the menu that I wanted to try, so I definitely plan to return as soon as possible. The service was good and the staff was friendly.

Next time I want to try: The Cambridge Skillet (Diced ham, bacon and hollandaise sauce on a bed of ranch potatoes with melted cheese and two eggs any style. Served with an English muffin.)
