Angela’s Birthday – Her Version/His Version

January 7, 2015 (by Jimmy) – Angela gave you a small synopsis of what we did on her birthday.  There are, however, two completely different views of what actually happened, Angela’s version and my version.  I now present the two versions of the day; see if you can identify the subtle differences. Angela’s version: When we first arrived in Mobile, we stopped at a wonderful eatery called “Spot of Tea” and had a nice brunch.

We walked and drove around Mobile and saw many beautiful things.  We visited a fort.

We saw beautiful churches.

And there were many, many outstanding homes.  We were both amazed at the size and number of these type of homes all over Mobile, absolutely grand.

We then had a late lunch of barbecue before returning home.  It was a wonderful day full of beautiful sights.

Jimmy’s Version:

When we first arrived in Mobile, I saw a rocket ship.

After we had brunch, we walked and drove around Mobile and saw many weird things.  We first stopped at the (honest, folks I didn’t name it) Arthur R. Outlaw Convention Center.  It was locked up, so I guess to get in you have to break and enter, at least they named it right.

We saw Naked Indians at Fort Conde.

We went to the Royal Theatre and hung out.

I took Angela to a nice club, but we had to leave when she didn’t meet the height requirements.

We saw the Official Arkansas State Party Headquarters; it’s pretty empty… Could that have something to do with the fact that we are in Alabama!!! Okay, there was the “Go-Daddy Bowl” football game that day, and Arkansas State was playing, but still did they have to apply to the University to get the “Official” designation?

We then stopped at the hippy children’s home.  We moved on because it kind of smelled like weed.

We saw this guy outside a restaurant.  I’m not sure what you are supposed to put in his hand, but he seems pleased to serve you.

We saw the big breasted Sphinx’s; I still like the Molly McGuire statue in Dublin, Ireland better.

However, the weirdest thing of all was this.  I am going to call these guys and ask how long the lease is on a “Funeral Residence” and does that include turn down service and potpourri?

We then had a late lunch of barbecue before returning home.  It was a wonderful day full of interesting sights. Now that you have seen the two different perceptions of Angela’s birthday drive around Mobile, leave a comment and let us know which you liked most. Until later… later…
