Day 5 Alabama: A Bust and a taste of christinity

October 16, 2012

We drove from Georgia into Alabama, to Montgomery and up to Birmingham (actually stopped at Jemison and spennding the night at Pelham).  The whole antiquing thing was a bust today.  The many antiques and flea markets we stopped at were big, I give them that; but, they were more like bad thrift stores.  Yech.  We did however, have a true enlightenment as provided by the multitufe of billboards we saw along the way:

“How will you spend eternity?”

Go To Church or the Devil will get you.

But in all honesty, this day was not much.  more fleas than flea markets.  Alabama is not as pretty as Georgia – it seems rather run down.  We did have a nice dinner tonight at a place called the Texas Roadhouse.  BBQ and steak and stuff.  I must admit I do like the way that Southerners make their veggies.  Ummmm. Robyn had baby back ribs and I had a filet smothered in onions, mushrooms, and jack cheese.  Yep, I said it jack cheese.  it was fantastic.  The table came with buckets of peanuts and country western music was playing overhead.  At the end of dinner the waitress came up to offer us dessert: (You must say this in a southern accent): Apple pie, pecan pie, mud pie, peach pie, dessert is a requirement.  I love this woman!  We did pass on dessert however. 

We don’t know quite what to do tomorrow.  go to mississippi or drive right through it and go straight to Arkansas?  not sure.  follow our adventures and find out.

Forget to tel you, i found my long lost Baby Jamima doll in one of the flea market stores.  Brought me to tears.  So happy Mammy is home!!Image
