I cannot believe it. I am still pinching myself. I went to Walmart today....and no..that is not why I am pinching myself. Well....as I was leaving...a cashier said, "hey....you...I know you!" I did not know her. But I acknowledged that she was speaking to me. I told her who I was and where I worked and who my mother was. It was almost like name, rank, and serial number for the military. She continued with, "I know I know you....and those things you just told me are not how.....but...hummm....WAIT! You opened for George Jones in Columbus on Friday night...didn't you?" I blushed a bit and admitted that I was guilty as charged. The lady in the line then said, "I saw you when you sang for Cowboy Crush at the RiverCenter in Columbus," and the man behind her said, "I saw you at the ampitheater in Phenix City. I can't remember the name of your group....but it was you and a couple of other blonde women....and you guys were great! Now...Alexander City is over 90 miles from Columbus....yet, here I was....in my town....in my Walmart....having a moment of paparatzi (excuse the spelling), my brief shining moment of fame....and to be honest. I loved every moment of it. They won't remember me next week....but today...today....I was somebody to be reconned with....I was a Still Magnolia! Happy Monday
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
