If you've read my blog at all, you probably recognize this site in my links section. I hope you have checked it out, because this young lady has done some magnificent work. (Here in the South, we call all ladies "young ladies". It's a term of respect and admiration.) The Two Dales site features news and pictures and a lot of just good web craft from one of my good friends. Though we've never met face to face, she is indeed one of my best friends, and I can't tell her enough how much I admire her skill as a webmaster. I deeply appreciate her displaying one of my most read blogs as well.
Fans of Dale Earnhardt and Dale Earnhardt Jr. are as varied as the leaves blown around by an autumn wind. My friend lives in Hollywood, California, and I live in the country, outside of a small town called Williamston, South Carolina. If you search this town in Yahoo maps or Mapquest, you will find it. I live about 10 miles away to the North West. I love it because it's peaceful here. I own a couple of acres of land, and the lady across the road keeps horses. Down the road, there are goats, and even geese. Rabbits are common in my front and back yards, and I see a fox or even a coyote now and then. Deer are no strangers to my land either, to the consternation of my neighbor who tries to grow a garden each year. He's a transplanted New Jersey resident, but I don't hold that against him. He's fed me with vine ripened tomatoes and green beans, and for a southerner, this is pure gold! Tomato sandwiches, slathered in a bath of mayonaise..... MMMMM! You just can't get better living than this, if you are a Southerner.
Can you imagine me, dear reader, wearing my Boston Red Sox cap, driving my old pickup truck through Hollywood, California? My mustached Jeff Foxworthy face, my unkempt hair, my old jeans, and my old Nikes taking to the sidewalk in Hollywood? Speaking in my thick, southern brogue. (Ever listen to Dale Earnhardt, or Dale Earnhardt Jr? I talk just like them) With luck, I might not be thrown into the nearest jail!
Two worlds apart. My friend has done one of the best sites I've ever seen, and I want you to go check it out. My Beverly Hillbilly's expedition is not going to start soon, but one of these days, I'm going to have to go meet two dear friends, one in Hollywood, California, and the other in a place called Semmes, Alabama. I'd just like to get a hug from each of these two nice people.
Once again, Check this site out!
I mean it!
Until next time, Thanks for playing along.
