Showplace of the South

It was hot yesterday, and it may be hotter today. Currently, it's 85˚F, with a heat index of 90˚F, and we're looking at a high of 92˚F. which means the heat index could easily reach 100˚F.

It was great seeing Gone With the Wind at the Alabama Theater yesterday, and it helped lift my spirits after those two wretched days. The show was sold out, 2,176 people; a few of them were even in Civil War-era costume, men in Confederate uniforms and women in Antebellum gowns.

Today, I have to get back to work.

Last night, Chinese takeout, and then we watched the sixth episode of Ken Burns' The War.

Please have a look at the current eBay auctions. Thank you.
