~ Some signs and sights on the way home ~

Alabama has a nice state sign and their tags say "Stars fell on Alabama." Not sure what that means.
This monument was at the Alabama Welcome Center on Hwy. 231

It reads:

The Union’s 22nd State 1819, Dec. 14th
Erected by the State Highway Department of Alabama
Frank M. Dixon-Governor Chris J. Sherlock-Director
1942

This sign directs us to Cottondale, Alabama, which has more cotton fields than I have ever seen. Most of the fields were picked but a few were yet to be done.


Not picked.


Not sure....probably not picked. This field was too distant to tell. The Cotton Picker leaves a lot ot cotton on the plant, mostly on the bottom half.

Good ol' Georgia State sign. Still proud of those olympics!

Are you trying to make me homesick? I don't think it's working, hahaha!

No......sounds like you're having too much fun out there! I just love looking at the cotton fields. Where are you from in Georgia?
