This isn’t about travel with Henri, though my observations may stem from places visited or things seen. This is about life as I know it. Life in the South. It’s my likely sporadic personal commentary on…whatever.

I love my family, my dog, and my friends.

I love sitting on the back deck with my Dad, who makes better Cosmos than any bartender I know, while watching the boys of summer on TV, and running back and forth to the pool for dips. My Mom does the grilling, because Dad doesn’t have the patience.

I love going to the lake with my girls, one of whom is actually from Detroit, but we’ve got her sayin’ ‘y’all.’ I love the sound of crickets and frogs (I do not like them in my house), and listening to country music. I live for tailgaiting, and I love the Razorbacks.

Me. My life. My thoughts.

This is the Southern Aside.
