The Center of the Universe Revisited

June 17

In case you want a look at the center of the universe, that's it as it was when I returned home in the late 1980's. The city had a new horticulturist and there were frequent changes of the floral plantings uptown. The pharmacy had long been covered up by aluminum siding, a move encouraged by a city "beautification" committee.

That's how it looked yesterday morning. Hurricane Ivan completed the beautification year before last by removing the siding, and the horticulturist is now mayor of Fairhope.
