What a great day! I attended my first Heart of Dixie RWA meeting in Cullman, Alabama, and learned all about Tactical Units (otherwise known as SWAT). I also met the greatest group of ladies (and a couple of gentlemen) who made me feel so welcome and excited about being a part of the group. You couldn't possibly find a group of nicer people, I am certain. And that's going some when I just came from the land of aloha.

But, I do believe Southern hospitality might just edge out the spirit of aloha by a slim margin. Hard to believe, but true. I don't mean the difference between this chapter and my Hawaii chapter, but rather the difference in the population as a whole. πŸ™‚ Folks are just friendier than heck in the South. And that's a good thing, especially since I learned that one can pack a concealed pistol here in Alabama (with a permit, of course). Not happening in Hawaii. Ever wonder why the Dog uses mace? Cause he can't carry. No one but the PD can carry in Hawaii. I kind of like that, really. πŸ™‚
