My son had applied for six odd universities, & so far, he hadn’t acquired acceptance from any of them, i kept telling him to be patient, bec,ause periodically it took time to get the paperwork.
I asked if he had one locale he honestly wanted acceptance to, & he said it was the University of AL, in Tuscaloosa, but when he said that, all I could know was that was where the AL Arboretum was.
When I was at the university in Tuscaloosa, the arboretum was the locale I went to when I wanted to think. It was such a elegant locale, & it was peaceful. The university arboretum is an exotic plant world… Six weeks later, my son came running into the home with the mail, then he had a large packet of papers from the University of AL. He had been accepted, & this was all the information he needed for the university. Inside the packet was information on the University of AL Arboretum. He told me it sounded just like I have previously mentioned would. The wildflower garden housed over 250 flowering plants. There was a walk-through hickory, pine, & oak forest… You would walk thorough bogs & see cacti & orchids at the yellowhouse. He said it was going to be overheated in there, & I laughed. It was going to be overheated in Tuscaloosa, & he had better hope there was a/c in the dorms. He stopped & looked at me like I was silly about hoping there was a/c. There wasn’t a/c when I was there.
