    THOMPSON of mississippi in the house of representatives Friday, January 10, 2014 Mr. THOMPSON of Mississippi. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor an innovator of the community, Mr. Albert ``Al'' Little and Al's Flower Shop.

    Albert, a native of Yazoo City, Mississippi, decided to return to Yazoo County, MS after living in Chicago for 40 years, where he worked in real estate. Upon retirement Al decided that Chicago was too cold and decided to make a change.

    After returning to Yazoo City in 1995, Al worked with Mary Anderson, who handled landscaping for the city. Mr. Little credits Mary for teaching him about plants and flowers. Al is the owner of Al's Flower Shop located on Broadway in Yazoo City, Mississippi.

    Inside the shop, the static clears and the antique radio picks up some lively tune from the 1930s. ``This business is really just a fun hobby to me. I love doing it, and that's all there is to tell.'' says Al Little.

    Mr. Speaker, I ask my colleagues to join me in recognizing Albert ``Al'' Little for giving back to the community in which he was born.
