Hi Donna! So good to hear from you. Isn't it amazing that we have met so many people on Jidigi who are from Alabama or have now moved away but were raised here? We should have a reunion! Haha! Yes, Guntersville State Park is great. I haven't been there in a long time. So sad to hear about all those trees being blown down. Okay...tell me again where you live? I need to write it down so I won't forget... : ( Haha!
Hi, Dottie. I was checking out your site and found this AWESOME picture of a sunset over Guntersville Lake. I love Guntersville Lake and have been to Guntersville State Park many times and even spent a few days (a few times) in one of the chalets there by the Lodge. It is a beautiful place, but quite different since the tornado took down all those trees. Thank you for posting this and I wanted to say Hi.
Hey, Cuz, You're very welcome! I'm glad you enjoyed it. I rarely make the leaderboard myself but that's okay. :)
Well, Cuz, I tried really hard to get on the leaderboard with this one. Didn't make it. BUT I really did enjoy it. Thanks.
Haha! Cyndi, you might be right!!
Wow this is fantastic! Kissing cousins on Jigidi.
We probably are! HA HA
My brother lived in Hueytown before he moved to Florida. WOW! LOL! We could be kinfolks!!
We were in Hueytown when I was born, but weren't there long. My dad pastored in Crossville and was the band director at Crossville High in the 70's. Mom taught English. We have to know some of the same people. My mother was in the nursing home there before she passed away a few years ago.
Also, my sister and her family lived in Crossville! My nieces and nephews still live there. It's a small world!! :)
Binkydo, I was born and raised in Birmingham!! We could have been neighbors! :) We lived in a little area called Wylam. Dad worked in the steel mills and mom was a 'stay at home' mom. I have so many fond memories of my childhood. What part of Birmingham did you live in? :)
I now live out of state, also. Mom grew up in Anniston, Dad in Collinsville, and I was born in Birmingham. I still have family all over the state. For many years I went through Guntersville to visit my sister in Boaz. She's now up on the mountain right near DeSoto Park. Love the little cornbread skillets! There's another man in my congregation here who is from 'Bama. We get pretty obnoxious during football season with our cries of WAR EAGLE before and after services. :)
Binkydo, good catfish, turnip greens, pickled onions and cornbread in small iron skillets at Top of the River! I grew up in Centre and now live in Greensboro, NC. Like DixieGal, I also say WAR EAGLE!
Guntersville!!!! Haney, you are right about Top Of The River. Ah...Sweet Home Alabama.
Hi Cyndi! Thanks for your comment. :)
Haney, my husband traveled all over Alabama when he was in sales. He said he used to eat at that restaurant when he was up that way. We used to have a cabin on the Warrior River and enjoyed all the water sports. My favorite was skiing! So glad this brought fond memories for you and Paula. :)
Dottie, this brings back fond memories to Paula and me. Before we had our own Weiss Lake in our county (1960 or so), we went to Guntersville to fish, boat and water ski. It is still a highly rated fishing and recreational area. If you get to Guntersville try the restaurant "Top of the River". Great catfish and other seafood. They also have a restaurant in Gadsden. We eat in Gadsden when "back home"! Thanks for posting Haney ;_)
