Alice reporting in!
I’ve had such fun in the Birmingham area. On 10-14 Debra Stewart, wife of Jamie Stewart (caller for the Krazy 8′s, the Covered Bridge Squares and the Dixie Square Thru’s square dance clubs) passed me to Sandra Hawkins at the Regions Bank in Birmingham, AL. While at the bank, I was treated to a tour of the safe-deposit box area. I sat patiently on Sandra’s boss’s chair waiting to surprise her with a Happy Boss’ day balloon. She was delighted!
On 10-14 I was treated with a trip to the country where I enjoyed riding on a 4-wheeler. I was hoping to find some of my Loon cousins, but unfortunately, no one answered my call. I enjoyed riding in the basket on the front of the 4-wheeler the best. I must have caught a cold because I didn’t feel so well for a couple of days. I’m happy to report that on 10-19 I woke up feeling back to my old self again. I enjoyed a cup of coffee with George Hawkins while we read the newspaper.
I went to the Wheel Arounds Square Dance club on 10-19 and helped Connie Dutton teach 17 new dancers. I must say, this group has a lot of potential. Connie’s really nice also …. she greeted me with a kiss! I was also introduced to Lydia Preston who is taking me to California. Lydia surprised me by taking me back to the Wheel Arounds on 10-23 where we enjoyed a “Wear Your Favorite Team Colors” dance with Larry Belcher calling and David Holladay cueing. The Wheel Arounds are really a fun bunch that meets in Fultondale, AL, at the Birmingham Square Dance Friendship Hall on the 2nd and 4th Friday nights, and I hope to visit them again real soon.
I’m anxiously anticipating my trip across the country to California. I’m going to enjoy dancing all the way to California! I’ll be traveling with Johnny and Lydia Preston.
