Throwback Thursday: 4th of July 2008, Birmingham

July 3, 2014

Gail and I had a streak there for a few years were we traveled and took mini-vacays for the 4th of July. In 2008 we loaded up her Jeep for one last road trip in it and headed from G-Vegas out towards Birmingham to spend the holiday weekend with one of our other college roomies, Anna. Anna is a photojournalist and world traveler and used Bham as her home base for a while.  We had such a great time! Shopping, eating, bar hoping, seeing the original Whistle Stop Cafe, the Vulcan and the UAB campus. They put up with me dragging them to the Civil Rights museum and I stuck with Gail as she got her third tattoo (I hate the sound the machine makes). All in all we had a wonderful time and lots of good laughs (like when the air mattress kept collapsing).

Me, Gail and Anna. This is the problem with long hair… does not work for pics like this!

Out for dinner, drinks and fireworks in the five points area of Birmingham, AL.

It was such a great weekend and fun time! Now I need to find time to see Anna in Austin, TX!
