“We have lived in Fairhope for 15 years. My husband worked for Mariott. The Grand was his last assignment and we stayed. I can’t tell you how many houses we have had or how many schools our kids went to. There was something new to learn or explore in each one. My children now live in a house in front of us and I get to see my grandchildren every day. My 4-year-old grandson is obsessed with Ghostbusters. He was a ghostbuster for Halloween. His 14-month old brother was Slimer. He wanted me to be the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man so I bought the T-shirt.
My mother read a book a day
I am reading Educated. I just started it today. Everyone in my family is a reader. My mother read a book a day. She also worked on crossword puzzles. She was so sharp and died in her sleep. When I find a good book it is hard to put it down. Where the Crawdads Sing and The Last Plane in the Sky were the best books I have read lately. Today was a gift to stop everything to come down here and read. I wish there was more time to do this, but you make the most of what you have. What more could you ask for?”
