November 24, 2014 - Deepest thanks go out to Michele K. Henderson who sent me this lovely card from sunny Alabama. Michele knows that I spent some time in Alabama and am always eager to hear from old friends and to make new ones from that part of the world. I was in Auburn, Alabama (not to be confused with Auburn, New York). Michele, a superb maker of cards, is in the northern part of the state. Of course, I am now in Upstate New York where the setting tends to be much more rural than neighbors Downstate. The early arrival of horrendous winter in nearby Western NY (Buffalo) has me in a “New York state of mind” indeed.
The Crimson Tide is the University of Alabama’s football team. They have a historic and exciting rivalry with the Tigers at Auburn University. Again, many thanks to Michele K. Henderson!
