Brit... what I got from this is that you're ready to be a Mama.

You are a brave, brave woman. My admiration for you only grows with time. I discovered several years ago that if I wanted to write, I would have to make time... and that time is from 4-6 in the morning. I own the house from 4-6; everyone else is asleep and the phone is definitely not going to ring; no texts; nothing on TV I can't leave as background noise.... And at 6, I know i've put in a "day" (kind of) of writing and the rest of the day I can live guilt free. Of course that means I go to bed by 9 and I suspect my family is having lots of fun without me. But I am a writer... and writers write. But, dear Brit, you already know that. Please come back to AC for a visit soon and let's get together. Dale
Years ago at the old location of Exit 4 Cracker Barrel in Clarksville two waitresses managed to pour a whole barrel of steaming hot tea on Crystal. She looked like she had entered a wet tee shirt contest. Her hair was matted and I was terrified as the steam rose from her little body. All her clothes were ruined and everything in her purse was unusable, including a big book of postage stamps she had just purchased. Miraculously, she wasn't burned. We were nice, of course, and Cracker Barrel gave her some new clothes from their "store." Our meals were comped and apologies flowed about like the tea. Now it's a funny story we tell.

Very nice concluding paragraph. Odd story. Poor Marshall. You are quite the writer! So proud of you...

BRIT.... The Clarksville Outback Neon Sign was on the blink a few years back... The "back" was out of the "Outback" part and the "steak" was out of the "Steakhouse" part, leaving the large sign on Wilma Rudolph to invite customers to the "Outhouse." Reading your article makes me wonder if it was "truth in advertising..." Love your blog! Dale

I knew the 17 year old you... and you were as impressive as any 17 year old I've ever known, and I've known many, many throughout the years. The blog post tells me you're even more amazing at 34... we MUST catch up the next time you're home. Dale
