Scott R. -Wondering

Scott--I know this is highly unlikely, but your picture looks like an age progression photo of a child I taught years ago. Did you by any chance every attend school in Mississippi?

scott: did i ever mention to you that my wife is from Bainbridge,Ga about 120 miles south of you. She attended some school in Montgomery that was an all girls school at the time (forgot the name). My first night solo flight was from Bainbridge to Montogomery to Bainbridge.

I guess Huntingdon way back when was an all girls school. There was a non-college school my mother went to.

Huntingdon it was!

My daughter sometimes practices out at Huntingdon College...her pitching coach is the head coach of the Girl's Fast-Pitch Softball over there. Man, you should see her 10 yr old pitch a ball!!

Now, Huntingdon...I heard it was 'haunted'...is that true? Hmmm...I heard a rumor about that place....you heard about it?

The Red Lady of Pratt

For many years now, the Pratt dormitory has been the persistent haunt of a ghostly spirit known as the 'Red Lady.' While no one knows the source of the disturbances for sure, the legend suggests that the 'Red Lady' was a quiet, unpopular, and lonely student. Try as she might she found it virtually impossible to make friends. In fact the more she tried, the more she was ridiculed and ostracized (teens can be very cruel and stupid at times). They also found humor in the fact that she never wore any color but red, and taunted her over that as well. Disillusioned and distraught, the young woman eventually hanged herself in her room.

To this day, students have reported surprise, late night encounters with a young woman dressed in red who seems to quickly vanish through closed doors and even through walls. In recent times, and in a few isolated cases, a chilling blast of air rips through rooms in the dorm, and strange creaking sounds come from various corners of the room when ever malicious students pick on, or harass others.

That's right! That's what I heard...about the hanging herself....wierdorama!! Look's like our ballseason is going to be cut short...I had really hoped I'd talk you into coming to a few games but...our oldest got hurt at homeplate last night..breaking her thumb...a ball was hit to the outfield, thrown back into the pitcher, then onto our daughter playing catcher....Lauren caught the ball standing infront of homeplate, and got creamed by the runner. She's alright, just heartbroken more than anything...that she finally made the team and won't be able to play the season out. 6 long weeks' of no softball, swimming, tennis or golf....bummer. Emily's will be over in a week..doesn't last as long..we play in Millbrook tonight...you should come!

Steph, thanks for the invite but Millbrook is so far, far away. At least 15 minutes I bet. Don't you throw any parties? Say, a toga party with plenty of 20ish and 30ish single gals. Yea, yea, I know here in gumpville they're all married with two children by age 20. (historical note: Montgomery was called gumpville by the locals well before the 'Forrest Gump' movie). I guess I'm not much on the family scene. I saw my mother in K-Mart last night and hid. She wasn't there to buy combat boots. She's one of those hoity-toity types. Brian G has one good enough for the book. I could write a tourist's guide to gumpville. 'Gumpville Down Under: A Visitor's Guide to Montgomery Alabama'

I was talking yesterday to a friend about how eventhough people in big cities ignore each other, it seems like they have a sense of community or culture, and even if they don't you can seek out others of like-kind in some sort of group setting. In Gumpville, it's a like a vacuum. No thought, no culture, and very little youthfulness and happiness. Let's see, a typical weekend for a gumpite: go eat, watch a movie (wow! big deal!), and go to church. Concerts? Forget it. Bands? good luck finding a good one. Amusement parks? ha ha that's a good one. Museum or plays? It took the charity of Blount to make one available. You'd think a quarter million people could get together and do something better. The Wall Street Journal did an excellent long article on how the local version of 'COPS' made a huge hit simply because people here don't have much else to do and the city is small enough that you'll recognize some of the scenery.

There's also a large number of large people. I can't even count the number of women I know who weigh twice as much as me. Everyone seems miserable too. Without thought or goals or careers. Most of the time when I enter a store, there is not an attractive woman anywhere to be seen. Seriously. I see more attractive women driving through B'ham than I do all week in gumpville. There was a magazine article that rateed cities thoughout the country. Gumpville made the list. It ranked somewhere in the top 5 for most churches per capita and somewhere in the bottom 3 for 'attractive women' or something like that. I wonder if there's a correlation.

Oh come on!! Millbrook isn't that darn far!! ( Not that I've figured out how to get there myself but...). Come to find out..after taking Lauren to the ortho-surgeon this morning...it is fractured in two places , but will heal completely within two weeks...so she doesn't have to give up playing on the team afterall. She's so excited she can still play...not catcher...but in the outfield. So the guys at the ER were wrong...she doesn't have to quit the team. There's plenty of time for you to change your mind..teehee.

And I've already told you...we do have a huge party every year..but it's not at our house anymore...for 3 years we've had the Halloween Party at the MCC...but not sure if we'll have it this year. The first two years we hired Dr.Feelgood...but this past year we went out on a stretch and hired Chevy 6..thinking it might bring in some of the older crowd...NOT...but we all still had a great time...even having Luigi come and pick us all up on the Double Dutch Bus. The deal is..I think we lost a large sum of mula for the club..they may say 'no way' this year...but that's okay..we've had a ball...if it's on..I'll let you know...course with everyone dressed in costume..you may not find anyone appealing.

Were just in the deep south scott...there's still hope..

Oh..and I have a question for ya...I went to the doc' today for different reasons..mostly back pain today..come to find out..he said I have scoliosis...you reckon' with the back being all out of wack...that it could have something to do with this heel pain? Hmm...just thinking...

Steph

Re: huntingdon's red lady

Scott R on 6/15/01 at 18:11 (050784)

Scoliosis possible cause of heel pain? I think possibly. Halloween party sounds fun. I think I'll go to Sinclair's tonight to eat. Yes, of course Millbrook isn't far. I was just being funny. It just seems too odd to watch other's children play ball. How old's your husband? I just looked at the videos we recorded. They're kind of funny. I still have two of them. It's been almost a year. You know there's a good German resturaunt in Millbrook on the main street (as if there are many other streets). It's in an old house a little ways off the road with a crummy grass and dirt and mud parking lot. It's not always open but it's crowded when it is. Food bar. Interestng place.

Re: huntingdon's red lady

Stephanie S. on 6/15/01 at 20:07 (050790)

I'm kind of freakin' out a little over the scoliosis thing he told me...will see specialist in a week or so....but just crossed my mind..if my back is out of line...( not noticable but..you know) makes sense to me...a little anyways.

Sinclairs? So NOT fair! You know what I had? Roasted peanuts and a coke. Emily's All-Star team won tonight ..13-12..whew! We play again tomorrow night at 8:00..same field.

What foodbar? Hmmm....??

Hubby is 34...I'm 32...I know...I need to make another trip to your house to pick up the stuff I left...I've been meaning to but...you know how it is..life get's busy sometimes. Will soon...yes, I know it's been a year...the kid's have grown so much since then! They'd be sad about your cat...:(

Hope you enjoyed your dinner..and yes, you should come to the next party...we can't afford Chevy 6 again this year...but Dr.Feelgood we could...tee hee.
