Once you're back you're going to be calling everyone "shuggah" and telling them to "kiss my grits".

I know it...

FYI, If you're in some bar and 5 big dudes come strollin' in. I'd recommend tipping your hat to any ladies who might be accompanying them.
If it goes south from there, accuse the one with the greenest teeth of voting for George McGovern and having a commie flag in his garage. Then kick him in the knee, run to your car, do a couple donuts in the parking lot and take off!
True...you might want to re-route your trip, via Omaha.

What the frick?

How can Air Canada be better at something??

I'm flying Delta to Atlanta, then to Dothan. I just checked in on line. You NEED a paper boarding pass?? Air Canada will email or text you your boarding pass. Security will just scan your phone and you're good to go. Delta Airlines fail.

on the positive side, you can trade in your guns for sex toys in Alabama.
and if you really want to have fun, let everyone there know that the SEC sucks and USC is the best college football program in the country. then run like hell.

First off the food on base is pretty scary. However the food immediately adjacent to the base is awesome. Low Country cooking with a Texas/Louisanna influence. Enjoy yourself. If you get invited to a cookout go. The fishing is spectacular! Catfish are fun and tasty.

I just had dinner.....at a Japanese restaurant....like a Beni hana type thing. The chef guy had a combined "right off the boat" Japanese and good ol' boy accent. It was very distracting. The food was good though.

Do yourself a favor and go to the Blue Plate. Get the full order of grilled Gulf Shrimp. Get biscuits and cornbread too.

Well the meeting went well. There were no actual military people around. It was all maintenance contractors. Though i did get a little nervous when I accidentally used the phrase "expound upon"....

And I was called "shug" by a waitress. I guess that caps off my alabama adventure.

It's sunny and warm here. It's freezing cold and crappy back home. I just came back from a walk over the the Barnes and Noble to grab a coffee and peruse magazines. I've never seen such an empty bookstore.

Some of the best German food I had was in Alabama. Something about the German scientists being "persuaded" to relocate to the Huntsville area following WW2 to work on our budding rocket program.

Like hell it is. :mad:
whatever old man...German food is bland & not very tasty & everything is served with saur kraut & spoetzel. :D
Look at some of zee German's neighbors...Italy, France, Spain, all that good food within a days drive. I am not saying I don't enjoy phallic shaped meats encased in pig intestines or a good hassenpfeffer...it just aint 'good' food in the grand scheme of things.
