"paint me a birmingham/make it look just the way i planned/a little house on the edge of town/porch goin all the way around..."

"...put her there in the front yard swing/cotton dress make it early spring/for awhile she'll be mine again/if you can paint me a birmingham."

so this morning mom told me dad's moving to alabama. you're right, birmingham. good guess.

i don't know that i've ever been to birmingham. or even alabama for that matter. mom told me her friend susan's sister lives there. apparently it's beautiful.

i'm trying to imagine living 500-plus miles from my dad.

i don't think it's registered just yet.

some other interesting things related to the birmingham news have gone down today.

nothing concrete enough to give out details over the internet.

but if and when anything is confirmed, you can be sure i'll fill you in.

in the meantime, sing it with me... "sweet home alabama..."

correction: dallas is 647 miles from birmingham

Since my relatives live in the Huntsville/Madison area, let me tell you that you are not missing anything in that region but a lot of red dirt! Oh, and everytime we went there for spring break, we attracted tornados. I cannot tell you the amount of times we were all sitting in my grandmother's hall in her house, listening to the sound of hail hit the roof. SCARY! Much better in Dallas.
