She lives in Fairhope, Alabama; we have been friends for over 40 years, and her passions are her family, any holiday, and Alabama Football. We met at the University of Alabama while our husbands were in graduate school; we taught school in Tuscaloosa County and formed a friendship that has lasted through the years.
Cindy is modeling her houndstooth pajamas which were a gift from her daughter, her lovely baseball cap, my scarf which has my crimson monogram and her new makeup case which was a gift from me. The shaker in her hand has seen years of Alabama football games, from either the stadium or her den. A few of her former kindergarten students have gone on to play for her favorite team, and she cheers them on proudly.
We won't be cheering together, but tomorrow night will be an exciting one for Rick and Cindy, Joe and me.
