Why I love the fall season in Alabama
Of the four seasons if I had to pick one as a favorite,it would be fall.
In Alabama when the leaves starts tuning colors it is so majestic it must be seen to be appreciated.
I love it because it is the perfect temperature in Alabama's fall season,it isn't too hot or cold it usually is just right for me.
Fall means it is time for some of my favorite things
NCAA College Football - Being a huge Alabama Crimson Tide fan I love to spend my Saturday's watching Alabama and all the exciting Southeastern Conference teams play.
Since 2003 the SEC had had 7 National Championship football teams so to say they are good is a understatement.
The North Alabama State Fair - I love to ride the double decked Ferris wheel with my wife and all the excitement of the fair.
I love eating funnel cakes and corn dogs, I don't know why but it seems that they can fry anything at the fair and make it tasty and good to eat.
I also love to play the game where you put the quarter in the slot dropping it down to the slider that pushes the quarters down,I have won at this before but I usually lose a few dollars trying to beat something I know you can't beat in the long run.
I remember a few years ago they had a clown in a dunking booth who was so good at smack talking or barking at the crowd that I spent around $50.00 trying to dunk him.I would throw a ball and miss and he would say "fat boy you need to lay off them biscuits, I'm sitting up here high and dry" I'd throw again and miss and he would say "Higher & drier" I swear I would've spent $200.00 if it would've took it to dunk that clown,he had a line for the whole week the fair was there.In my defense it was a hard throw to make around 15ft away and a small target but he knew just what and how to get you to keep throwing those $1,00 balls.
I hope he is here again this year fat boy will be gunning for him.
This year The North Alabama State Fair begins September the 20th and runs through the 25th it is at the fairgrounds in Muscle Shoals,Alabama.
Who knows, maybe I will see you there.
I love Halloween - Since I only have a 16 year old at home now,you would think I would be content to just give out candy to anyone trick or treating.
I don't know why, I guess I'm just a big old kid but I love to dress up and go to spook houses or haunted cornfields and have good clean fun on Halloween.
I don't like rolling yards,throwing eggs or doing anything illegal or mean spirited.
I just enjoy seeing the decorations in the yards and watching the scary movies etc.
Fall is a good time to get outside and get active with the kids.
You can have fun by raking up leaves together and get some exercise while you are at it.
I enjoy walking and looking at the colors changing in the leaves,it just puts me in a good mood when fall comes around.
Fall also means you are getting closer to another favorite time of year for me, winter.
More on that later.
Anyway thanks you for stopping by I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I did writing it.
