My Recent Trip to Alabama in Photos





 
Thursday my Parents and I left home headed to Alabama for a few days to work on our land, getting it ready to build or put a mobile home on. We have not decided yet.   We ordered pizza from a nearby Pizza Hut on our way out of town for lunch.  It tasted good!
 

Hey, it's me!  I take a lot of pictures while I am riding on a trip.
 

 
We arrived at our land in Alabama right as the sun was setting. Beautiful!

 
Bama left his paw print in the dirt.

 
The temperature dropped, so I put on my nice and warm, fleece pink camouflage jacket.

 
Smile!

 
Bama and I were relaxing on the sofa in our RV. Bama was not excited to have his picture taken.

 
Bama getting ready for bed Thursday night.

 
Friday morning I woke up to this view, and thought it was a good idea to take a picture of it. I liked the contrast of light and dark from the sun shinning through the cracks around the curtain.

 
Friday morning, Bama and I were in the truck ready to go into town.
 
 
Look at him sporting his blue, service dog vest! 

 
He looks so happy and proud!

 
Here is a picture of Bama later in the day, he was tired and ready for a nap.
 

 
Friday night we tried out Bama's service dog vest for the first time by going into a Wal-Mart.  Success! He walked around the store like a pro! Good job Bama boy!
 

 
Saturday  my Parents, Sister and I went to Pensacola, Florida to get some parts for the RV, and look at mobile homes. We saw some pretty ones.
 

 
A door in one of the mobile homes.  I liked the door.
 

 
Sunday afternoon on our way to one of my Sisters.

 
Bama made friends with my two year old great-niece!  I enjoyed spending time with her. She is sweet.  She called me her "best friend," and asked if I could be her best friend. I said yes ma'am!  She told me I was pretty. Babies have a way of making me smile when I need it the most.

 
The sky was beautiful, as always! God is an amazing Artist!

 
I wanted a picture with a closer view of the clouds.
 

 
It's me again, on Sunday, sitting on the tailgate of my Daddy's truck.
 

 
Beautiful!

 
Such a peaceful view!
 
 
This Marvin's store in Monroeville, Alabama, was once a Winn-Dixie. When my Parents and I lived in Excel, Alabama up until 2004, we went to the Winn-Dixie there to shop for our groceries.

 
Farmer's Home Furniture, and Tractor Supply Co, in Monroeville, Alabama was once Wal-Mart.  My Parents and I would go to the Wal-Mart to shop when we lived in Excel, Alabama.
 
 
Bama was looking at the farm equipment in the parking lot of Tractor Supply.


Sunday night, back in the RV. Bama was sleepy.

 
Nap time!
 

 
Monday morning!

 
Monday night, it's time to head home to Mississippi.

 
Bama looks annoyed that I was taking his picture.
 
 
I enjoyed my time in Alabama.

Don't Give Up: A Lesson from Watching my Puppy



My dog Bama loves to annoy our puppy Gooby. The puppy can try to jump on the back of the truck or on the bed and Bama being up there already will stand in front of where the puppy is jumping, look down at him and push him down with his paw as the puppy jumps up. It's amusing. 


Isn't that like life, we jump excited to make it up higher in life and something knocks us down before we reach the top. 


Don't give up. Keep jumping, eventually like Gooby has learned you find a way to jump around the obstacle pushing you down and you succeed with a smile of joy at the victory you have won!

A Lesson from my Dogs Jealousy


Look at Bama's face in the picture! He was so jealous. 


Friday night we let our puppy Gooby inside to spend the night out of the cold. Bama who is an inside dog was extremely jealous. So much so that he retrieved a rawhide bone out of his "hiding place," that had been hiding for weeks. 


Once he retrieved it he proceeded to chew on it and rub it in the puppies face that he had a bone and Gooby didn't.  This wasn't fair, so I retrieved a rawhide bone for Gooby so they would both have one. While Gooby was happy chewing on his bone I noticed Bama had stopped chewing on his own bone and was now giving Gooby such awful looks. He was jealous and staring him down, his own bone now abandoned in front of him.  


While watching the two of them it dawned on me that is how us as humans are sometimes. We are jealous of other people's success in life and focus on what they have  that we fail to realize we have the same opportunities, time and capabilities right in front of us. 


It is up to us to use them, not look at our neighbor with jealousy and spite. 


I wonder what God thinks while watching us do like Bama.
