MY BROTHER IN-LAW HAMP WAS HONORED LAST THURSDAY IN HIS HOMETOWN. THEY NAMED A BASEBALL FIELD AFTER HIM! HE PROBLY CAN'T EVEN TO BEGIN TO TOTAL UP THE KIDS HE HAS COACHED THROUGH THE YEARS. I LOVE TO HEAR HIS STORIES THEY EVEN SHAVED HIS HEAD ONE TIME! HE WAS THE TYPE OF COACH THAT IF THE KIDS NEEDED A RIDE HE'D MAKE HIS ROUNDS TO PICK THEM UP OR DROP THEM OFF. WE ARE PROUD OF YOU HAMP~

here! We all got something different & passed around plates as if we was the Walton's instead of the Winfrey's! I will also add Jake was on "clean-up" duty! He finished off any crumb that was left! Me & Judy tore out all over Baldwin Co. on Wed. cause the men went fishing! At least that's what they said they did, I think they gave it a good try! We hit every thrift store from Gulf Shores to Fair Hope! Thurs. was time for the fest. to start & also the night for the TIP-TOPS they are a very exciting great band from Mobile. We love to watch them! The heat index for that day was 90 something, you couldn't hide from the heat nowhere! When the boys was fishing, being the people watcher I am I spotted this little man w/ these nets and chicken legs (yes, chicken legs) He was crabbing! Well early Fri. I got me some nets & my own chicken legs. After alot of "poking" from Jeff we tore out back to the bay. We caught about 10 or so I LOVED IT! Guess who liked the crab nets after that? Mr. Jeff! We yardsaled Sat. until we couldn't anymore cause we run outta energy & room in the car! We was packed! We got back in time to go to the Miller's condo for the Bama game! We had a great trip Judy's son Adam got to join us this year along w/ Jake, Tyler & Jennifer!
