Re: overwintering

My mother's tribe was from Alabama. She was born in Chattanooga because that was the closest hospital--just over the mountain, she said. My grandfather was a homeopathic physician who, when my mother was 2 or 3 years old, decided the herbs were greener in California, so he moved the whole menagerie [my grandmother was his second wife; she inherited a half dozen children from is first wife and had four of her own] to Los Angeles county. Only then did he discover that the State of California would not honor his Alabama license to practice medicine. So he went into the herbal remedy manufacturing business, but he continued to practice medicine on the sly [he took out my mother's tonsils on the kitchen table when she was 5].

Living by myself does help in that regard. <LOL> If I remember correct
ly you are from Alabama. If that is true we probably are related.

I grew up in the Florida panhandle, but my father's family were in Alabama
from around
1900 - in the country between Ozark and Ariton. I think Clio was the nearest
postoffice. We're talking real backwoods here. The Phillips family was large
- I can remember family reunions on the last Sunday in August where more than
a hundred people would gather for dinner on the grounds and political
speakin's. I didn't see much of that branch of the family, as my mother's family
raised me after her death when I was an infant. They were "urban" people (in a
town with a population of around 5,000) as opposed to "country," and thought
they belonged to a higher culture. Of course I developed my own views by the
time I was a teenager, and got out of town as fast as I could.
