Rosedale GardenChristmas, not holiday, parades abound in the Shoals this year. I hear comments a lot that there isn't anything to do here in the sticks, but I'm able to find a lot. I was able to make the parades of my hometown of Tuscumbia and down the road at Cherokee, and the boat parade on the Tennessee River. The rain started just as the Color Guard marched down the street at Tuscumbia's parade, but no one went home. I missed Sheffield’s, Muscle Shoals, Florence and Leighton’s.

The calendar of Christmas events has been overflowing with plays, symphony, concerts, and it never fails that I have three places I would like to be at the same time. The flu and sinus season has started early and our hospital has been full. My co-workers and I have been staying very busy.
