Dominican Republic Digs
I received a LITTLE envelope the other day with a BIG gift inside! Lots and lots of dirt from my "family" in Alabama, the Brooks Clan. They sent me a sample of dirt that was beautiful from the Dominican Republic where Beau was playing baseball. He and several other boys of summer spent about 3 weeks there, working on their baseball skills and extending their season. The dirt is several shades of red and orange and is very dry. It has a texture of almost ground rock. But then again, isn't that what all dirt is? Also included was a ,sample from Eddieville, Kentucky where, chance would have it, a flat tire inspired the gathering of dust just for me! Thank you once again to my friends in Bama!
