Rosedale GardenAfter graduation from Deshler High School, I went to college for two years at Florence State University, now known as the University of North Alabama. I worked as our church secretary and also helped at home on the dairy. After transferring to Auburn in 1973 with the intention of becoming a veterinarian, I found out there was a whole different world out there. One thing that was shocking was hearing some of the northern girls cussing up a blue streak that would make a sailor blush. We just didn’t do that at home, we would be permanently eating a bar of soap.

Another thing was food. No one cooked like Mom. My first quarter there I discovered antacids and became good friends with them. I lived in a private dorm off campus but had purchased a meal ticket with part of the student loan I had. Work study income went to a used 1966 Dodge Dart and for gas, insurance and other expenses. The next quarter I started cooking and I parted ways with the antacids.
