Third Quarter Recap

 

3q1

October is almost over and I just realized I didn’t write a third quarter recap at the end of September. So, for what it’s worth, here are the highlights of my third quarter:

  • We kept our daughter’s dog, Poca, for over a month while she was in Columbia, South America. Things started out well, but after the second fight, in which Loretta received a puncture wound, we kept the two dogs separate. It was fine, though, as each one got special attention.
  • I went to McAlister’s Deli for the first time. The Orange Cranberry Club was delish!
  • Joined Grace Covenant Baptist Church and began making new friends
  • Subbed in some new schools. including McAdory Middle, McAdory High, Pleasant Grove High, West Elementary, Hueytown Middle, Oak Mountain Middle, Helena Middle, Helena High
  • Attended a few Saturday Write Club meetings at the Hoover Library
  • Went on five hikes
  • Took lots of pictures around Bham
  • Went to Jacksonville and squeezed in a lot of visits. Got to see my  cousin Paula for the first time in over 15 years
  • Spent a morning at Jacksonville Beach
  • Started the Kindred Spirit Book Club  – it’s online, so if you are interested, leave me a comment or email me.
  • Started Round Two of the Capture the ‘Ham Small Group/Photo Group3q2

And now to finish the year well!

I Am Printing a Retraction

Morgan or Larry? You be the judge

I learned a lesson – don’t assume. You know what they say…

Last year I wrote a short blog post on the voice that comfortingly comes over the speaker at the Birmingham/Shuttlesworth Airport. The voice that tells you not to leave your bags unattended.

Here is the original post: https://angie5804b.wordpress.com/2015/04/23/bham-shuttlesworth-airport/

Turns out, according to a source from my stint @BeingBham on Twitter, that voice isn’t actually Morgan’s. It’s a guy named Larry Davis. Wow, was I fooled. So, I checked out Larry. You need to, also. On this page you can hear samples, including his impression of Morgan Freeman. I bet you would have been fooled, too!
