We're Just Like You, Only Prettier - Confessions of a Tarnised Southern Belle
I have just finished a wonderfully light and funny read that I have to tell you guys about. It is by Celia Rivenbark and if you get a chance to read this...you must...especially if you live in the South, are interested in the mystic of the South, or are a wannabe southerner. The book is a collection of hysterical essays about southern life, southernese, southern ways, and southern style. It is a combination of tales of marriage and family, a faulty Christmas toy, WT (white trash), and a day at the spa. This book is NOT for the faint at heart...there are a few cuss words....but even with them it is a delight. The chapter titles will leave you in stitches. I have finished the book so if there is an interested party out there who would love to read it....let me know and I will forward it to you.
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.
