A dear friend of mine from Alabama, Rebecca, was in town attending a conference. Becca was the first person I met when I moved to Birmingham 11 years ago. We started out as roommates and have been wonderful friends ever since. Rebecca's husband, Stevie K, is a talented musician. When we are in Alabama, Tom loves to visit Becca and Stevie K so they can get together and have "jam sessions".
Aleck and I picked Becca up at her hotel and we went to lunch. The weather was awesome so we were able to dine outside. Aleck was on his best behavior and we had a great time.
