Olde Towne Clinton

A friend invited me over to have lunch yesterday and I loved getting to see all the latest additions to the Olde Towne Clinton area.  This small town is home to my alma mater, Mississippi College, and I always enjoy visiting my old stomping grounds.  Clinton’s citizens are doing a great job of preserving the historic town district while adding attractions that enhance the experience of living here or simply visiting for a day.

The mayor and his wife have renovated this historic property…

it has the added plus of sitting directly across the street from City Hall making the daily commute pretty pleasant…

fun fact…

when I was younger and thought about having a daughter I wanted to name her Aimee…

that did not happen – I was more inclined to name her after my mother and a favorite aunt by the time she came along…

little did I know that later in life two Aimees would cross my path…

the first lived around the corner from us when the children were small and kept a stash of sugar cookies in her freezer –  each time she saw us walking past, the children would be beckoned for a cookie – they called her the “cold cookie lady” – she was Aimee…

the second you have probably guessed is my Clinton friend!

Thanks for a great day Aimee!

it’s always fun to hang out with a friend…
