Good morning, Uncle Henry,
My wife and I spent the last couple of days in New York helping out her family as her Dad just went through some planned kidney surgery. He is doing well, and seems to be on the way to a full recovery.
We left on Monday, with us leaving straight from my wife's office. Before I stripped myself of all weaponry and finished loading the vehicle for the trip into the People's Republic of New Jersey and the Socialist State of New York I decided I would do a little something for my wife since we wouldn't be back until Valentine's Day itself.
As the pictures show, I took some frozen bacon we had, melted an entire Symphony chocolate bar, and covered the bacon in that. She will now be treated to a tray of chocolate-covered bacon when she gets home. Mmm mmm good.
Take care, Uncle Henry! I hope someone gives you chocolate-covered bacon today!

Dearest Uncle Henry,
my amazing friend Sean
(-so- amazing he is called by many "the amazing Sean" and he's NOT a magician)
is the reason I am writing this sincere, heartfelt email
it oozes sincerity, but because it's an email you will not require a moist towelette
the amazing Sean Cascaden is young and very conservative!
he listens to Rush when he can
he saves his money, he is going to USA and is going to be a Master Mechanic
(meaning an actual mechanic...not a tool set)
he plays the guitar and drums, and he sings...which brings me to the subject of this letter:
because he is active in the community, he is going to be in the
-Krewe of the Mullet Mates Parade-
with his band project (gathered just for the parade!)
the band has been named 'Collected Soles'
I'm contacting you because YOU have the most powerful voice in the community and will reach ALL the people who are awake from 5-9am or listen to the podcast at a later time!!!
You could make a huge difference!!! If you promote the parade and give mention of his band...I don't exactly know WHAT will happen...but BIG THINGS!!!
*I can feel it*
wait...no, that's a loose spring in my cushion
But it would make a HUGE difference to this conservative young man in our city of record and of note,
-glorious Old Mobile-
as he ventures to Mullet Point as an ambassador of good will, spreading conservative values thru music!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for any help you might give,
friend of the amazing Sean
Sounds like she doesn't know anything about Downtown Mobile. Has she been down there in years. Many successful restaurant/bars have been there for years. And let her know a box store like Macy's would never survive. That is a old way of thinking.
Retail is needed but smaller pop up retail is more likely and more chance of success.
The Royal scam restaurant had their best day Saturday in 6 years. So obviously someone is spending money on Loda on entertainment in a slower economy.
You know Downtown Mobile really isn't for everyone. If its not your cup of tea Fairhope and West Mobile will be more than happy to see you.
As to being a "French Quarter" - we don't have the tourism numbers to even remotely look like the French Quarter. Other than Mardi Gras - Art Walk is the largest crowds monthly in Downtown. Are you really scared of 40-60 year olds walking down Dauphin Street with their wine?
These entertainment districts are very successful in many budding cities in Mobile. It is a low cost amenity this city can use to help attract more tourist and more importantly larger conventions. I applaud Mobile for trying something new instead of following old ideas that don't work.
