Gone but not forgotten

Of course we would move to Kansas the year Alabama finally wins the National Championship. I lived there during the Francione/Price/Shula years where the only bumper stickers I would see were, "Fear the Thumb." (Shuddering silently in horror.)

So after we won I was looking everywhere for some rockin' apparel. But there was none to be had. Apparently nobody in Kansas gave a flip about our BCS success. All I could find were Rock Chalk Jayhawk shirts, a few K State caps, and one or two Mizzou dog collars. I even wore my Alabama hat around town for a week straight and I didn't get one single, "Roll Tide." In fact, all I got was a nod in understanding from an elderly man in the grocery store.

So I was thrilled when a few days after the game my parents sent me a houndstooth scarf and 2 national championship shirts. How awesome are they? And then I opened my front door a few days ago and two dear friends from Montgomery sent National Champs gear for the whole family!

Thanks for making the Kansas contingency of 'Bama nation feel a little closer to home. We really appreciate being remembered. I might just cheer for KU basketball now. That's how generous I am feeling.

Rob looks good without a beard! And Bennett's hair is so cute! That's about all I have to say on the subject. And I could just kiss all over Will and what I wouldn't give to curl up on the couch with a cup of hot cocoa and watch a good movie with you, girl!
