If I would have had my camera...

You would be seeing three great pictures if I would have had my camera and been lightning quick this week. You'll just have to imagine them.

#1) Main Street, Atmore, Alabama. Rainy summer afternoon with sunshine gleaming. Freshly painted dotted yellow line between northbound lane and the suicide lane. Miserable-looking lump of old, unidentifiable roadkill with a firm yellow line down its rump.

#2) Jack Springs Road, Atmore, Alabama. Exit 54 near the BP. Just before lunch. Old car with a set of deer antlers for a hood ornament.

#3) Farm shop, Weberville. Late afternoon. 4 generations leaning or sitting on the tailgate of a pick up. Great Grandpa, Grandpa, Daddy and Owen making serious but relaxed conversation about the day's soybean planting and combining of oats.

"Oh play me some Mountain Music
Like Grandma and Grandpa used to play
And I'll float on down the river
To my Cajun hide-away-ay-aaayyyyy...Yee-Haw!!!" (insert mad fiddling here)

Joycie, you gone country.
