My New Year’s Gift to the AAAs: New little vid


That’s the Ardent Armitage Aficionados, in case you were wondering. Happy New Year from me, Richard and some of the ChaRActers–hope you enjoy this quick little vid. Benny and I are listening to the distant sounds of fireworks and are about to watch the giant Moon Pie drop down in Mobile, our port city to the south and the place where Mardi Gras was first held in the New World (Yep, even before New Orleans).

Ah, the Commodores are singing Auld Ang Syne now as the laser light show, fireworks and ticker tape cannons go off. I just wished my sweet hubby a better 2013 . . .


Tornado warnings all around us.


Just discovered we are surrounded by tornado warnings.┬áThere is evidence of several tornadoes in surrounding counties and one┬áhas definitely touched down in Mobile to our south and caused some damage. Huge system moving in from Mississippi to our west. The weather map is lit up in green, red and yellow, but it’s not a festive sight. I hear the rumble of thunder in the distance. We may be evacuating the house for the farmhouse down below soon. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
