Hey guys I just got back from helping out with the clean-up from hurricane Ivan in Alabama, and was wondering how many FTE people are from there. I just realized that that state dosent have a dedicated forum. We were mostly in the Greenville/Georgiana area, but also did some work around Jackson and Coffeyville. This was my first time in Alabama and I absolutely loved it. We're thinking about going back in a year or so.
My ex is from the Gulf shores/Foley area of ALabama, probably about the area you were working in. I love it there and am planning on going around there to help out in about a week. How did it go for you ? And glad you helped out!!
It's only a dry county because the residents don't want the
liqour stores to be in competition with their stills. Just kidding. Alabama is a beautiful state. I drive through almost on a yearly basis. This brings us to a favorite joke of mine:
A guy and his buddy are hauling a$$ down Interstate 65 one day in a souped up Mustang. They come over a rise in the road and sitting in the grass median is an Alabama state trooper. The trooper is in a 1973 Pontiac with a 455, grey with a single blue light in the middle of the roof. The trooper pulls out and he’s on them like white on rice. The guy pulls over and tells his buddy not to say anything. The trooper gets out of his car and puts on his smokey the bear hat, adjusts his mirror sunglasses and makes sure his handcuff tie clasp is straight. He walks up to the mustang with his nightstick in his hand and raps on the driver’s window. The guy rolls down his window and the trooper smacks him upside the head with the nightstick. The guy screams out and asks the trooper why he hit him. The trooper tells him, when the Alabama highway patrol pulls you over boy, you have that window down when we get to the car. The trooper then asks to see his license and insurance papers. The guy starts to get them out and the trooper smacks him again. Once again, the guy screams out and asks why he was hit. The trooper tells him that when the Alabama highway patrol pulls you over, you have them license and insurance papers ready when the trooper gets to the car. At this point the guy’s head is really hurting and his passenger is doing everything he can to keep from laughing. The trooper gets done writing the ticket and hands it to him to sign. Then the trooper walks around to the passenger side of the mustang and raps on the passenger window with his nightstick. The passenger rolls down the window and the trooper smacks him upside the head with the nightstick. Now the passenger is screaming and wanting to know why he was hit since he wasn’t even driving and hadn’t done anything. The trooper calmly tells him that he is just fulfilling his greatest wish. The puzzled passenger looks at the trooper and asks him what that might be. The trooper proceeds to tell him that he knows that they wouldn’t have gotten a mile down the road and the passenger would have been telling his buddy the driver, “I wish that S.O.B. would have hit me with that nightstick”.
