WELCOME TO LONESOME DOVE, ALABASTER, AL  POPULATION 1...I have already introduced you to my miracle Uncle, Handsome Bill Holcombe.  Handsome Bill was one of those born out of time.  He should have been a major player in the Wild Wild West, but that was not in the cards for him.                 Uncle Bill is a very artistic person with many talents.  He is a seasoned musician, and artist, comedian, entertainer, successful and educated business man , friend, brother, daddy, uncle and son.  He is loved by everyone that comes in contact with him and he gets to be a cowboy everyday!  Always a lover of antiques, old westerns, and the authentic wild west, a retirement hobby turned into a great ministry of sorts.  When Uncle Bill moved back home after living in Memphis, TN for 20 some odd years...

I live in Alabaster, Alabama. It’s a great city situated in Shelby County, just south of Birmingham in the northern part of the state. Today I want to spotlight the neighborhood I live in called Weatherly. Weatherly is a modern swim and tennis club development with over 600 home sites. In addition to the swim and tennis club it offers several lakes and a clubhouse. The subdivision offers numerous home styles and home sites, including garden homes, lakefront homes, mountain top homes and estate size lots. With a neighborhood this size it is easy to get lost in the crowd and feel overwhelmed by the number of neighbors you have. This can affect your sense of belonging to a community by making you feel isolated. I’m sure everybody reading this has probably seen the old Andy Griffith series ...
