Andrea Bocelli- Con te Partiro

A Night in Tuscany.

Alas, I see the beautiful goldenrod, morning glories - Andalusia Star-News

Peeping through my Venetian blind, I admired the morning glories, twining up and over my gate arbor. Looking down the road, I could see the sides lined with nodding goldenrod.

This past week in traveling I have seen fields of goldenrod, once Alabama’s state flower. The poor, ol’ goldenrod wasn’t good enough for some of the ladies in Greenville, I understand; so some had the state flower changed to the camellia. (Greenville is the “Camellia City.”) The camellia, however, is an import. The goldenrod, bless its heart, is native to Alabama.

The goldenrod, narrow-leafed sunflower, golden aster, and other yellow wildflowers make me call October “The Golden Month.”

In Yo’ Craving on the Golden Square I ran into Cindy Perrin of the Beautiful Voice and Joan Kervin.

Coming out of the cleaners the other day, I ran into Billy Stokes and had a nice, sidewalk conversation.

Seen for supper at the Samurai Restaurant were Tommy and Michele Gerlach, Bill and Gail (Gibson) McInnish, and their daughter, Abby Sherman, and her little daughter, Eleanor Grace. The McInnishes were up from Bay Minette for the 90th birthday celebration for Bill’s mother, Betty Sue, attended September 20 in First Presbyterian Church, Andalusia, which Betty Sue attends.

If you don’t know Betty Sue, just look about for one who has the face of an angel, who smiles like a sunset, and who glows with the spirit of Heaven. Betty Sue is one of the most beautiful ladies ever to live in Andalusia, in loveliness, in mind, in heart, and in soul.

In Greenville to visit Mrs. Gotrocks, I found her miffed at my thoughts on the state flower. She pouted and would not accompany me to lunch at the Cracker Barrel. Later, talking to my waitress at the Cracker Barrel in Greenville, Sarah Spurlock, I found that she has six children. Two of them live in the Andalusia area, Alicia Cook and Tereasa Sorrells (Mrs. Jason Sorrells).
