Tales of travel, tunes and the occasional taco.
Always on the lookout for the best places to travel for music lovers, but okay with everything else I find along the way.
Huntsvillians come in many flavors; transplants, Army brats, retirees, natives and people like me; I’m a sixth-generation native. As you may know, that’s a pretty uncommon story around here. I’m such an endangered species, I guess you could call me a “Rocket City Platypus”. Come to think of it, I might insist on it. But […]
