- West Alabama Offers Shrimp Surprise

My mom, a native of a small town in Long Island, always told my sisters and me that living in a small town was like having a large family—barbers told stories about your granddad, neighbors knew your birthday, and your third grade teacher had also taught your aunt and graduated with grandma. “Living in a large city can be lonely by comparison,” she’d sigh.
