My husband (Keklemor - Stormrage US) and I (Deeliia - Stormrage US) live in Decatur, Alabama. About two and a half hours north of Bham, but hey, we're still in Alabama!
Around the end of February, we'll be moving to the Auburn, AL area, so a little closer to hang out. ^_^
I'm glad you're finding out that you're not alone!
