Southern Lovin

When Junior decided to move to Nashville from London, England (not Kentucky) in 2010, it was because he wanted to be with his mama. Finding love was the furthest thing from his mind.

But then, out of the blue, he met Miss Pearl, who was working out at the nursing home.

Can I tell you what a happy event that has been in my life? Yes, she is beautiful. Kind, funny, and intelligent as well. But most of all, Miss Pearl is a professional geriatric caregiver. That’s all I needed to know. She’s perfect.

But there’s more…

Miss Pearl is also studying here in Nashville to be a fully-qualified mortician. Yes! She can take care of them and give them a good send-off too! Hell, in my situation, we could set up an assembly line! I just couldn’t be more thrilled about it.

So I have been spending many happy evenings here at the house recently cooking up a storm, while Junior gazes at her in dumbstruck adoration, and Miss Pearl does her homework.

Last week, it was learning how to make false ears for people killed in unfortunate circumstances. Isn’t that the sweetest thing?

So happy Valentine’s Day, y’all!

  1. Junior and Miss Pearl are they in on this? Have they heard about this?
    I’m in love with Miss Pearl also, heard she had flaming head of hair!
    Happy Valentines Day to you 🙂

  2. That’s just the cutest story I’ve ever heard. I think I’m gonna be driving thru Nashville in a few weeks… maybe we can visit her at work?

    great Harriet, Malcolm just had to explain that you don’t necessarily have to lose both ears when you die!
