We spent the weekend in the the city of
Heat, Humidity and Hailstorms Heroes, History and Hometown Feeling! That’s the new tagline for my hometown of Fayetteville. (I have to admit, it’s a much better slogan than Raleigh’s – Who Needs the NFL, NBA, WNBA, PGA, or NASCAR when you have a Cup!.
We stayed at my dad’s home. My stepmom showed us copies of photos she snapped during their recent visit up our way. I really liked the one she nabbed of Gabrielle on the swings. It captures well her persona – laughin’ and lovin’ life.
The weekend was a mini-family reunion, with my stepsister and brother both in town. We’ve spent little, if any, real time together in the past 15 years. It was great to get together.
