Alabama-isms #2

I drove my mom to the airport this morning while Josh took care of Noah... I took a little time for myself and went shopping in Birmingham before returning to Tuscaloosa.

While in trying on clothes at Banana Republic, I overheard two women talking in a dressing room down the way.  One said to the other (and you need to read this with a thick southern accent in your head)... "Why, I think I need to put my britches back on and go take a tinkle!"

You can't help but smile.

There will be NO bread or milk left at the grocery store.

Hi Deb and Josh,
If Noah turns out to have Metachromatic Leukodystrophy (MLD) I wanted to let you know of our foundation, the MLD Foundation. We started it after two of our daughters were diagnosed with MLD. We didn't want others to have to go through the journey alone as we had to do. We are a 501c3 and have a support discussion list where you can talk with others who are living with MLD daily. Our four pronged mission is facilitating Compassion for MLD families, increasing Awareness about MLD, influencing Research for a treatment and a cure for MLD, and promoting Education about MLD so people are diagnosed faster and not misdiagnosed. This make up our motto of we C.A.R.E. Please check us out at
Your family will be in our prayers. I know what it is like to be living in the unknown. We had to endure 6 years of knowing something was wrong before we
found out what was wrong with our daughter.
Take Care,
Teryn Suhr

I know exactly what you mean. I stand amazed sometimes when I hear people talking in town. Seems like the English teachers are teaching English as a second language sometimes. One of the funniest things yet were two kids getting into an argument in one of the classes I was subbing in at THE high school over whether or not they were "kin".
