thats where im going for a week in mid january, going down to spend a week with a girl i been talking to on the internet for a couple years. just wondered if any of you guys are from there or have heard of the town, supposedly very rural area, alot of cotton fields she said. probably alot of snakes too tho im afraid, and i dont like them, do that funny snake dance when i come across one in the hay stacks.

Hope your experience with "the girl you met online" turns out as good as mine . We met "online" almost six years ago. Met "in person" 5 1/2 years ago. Been married almost 4 years. Never had a cross word and deeply in love. She's the best thing ever happened to me.

Don't let her worry you none about grits. They go real well with Jack Daniels!

Marc, looks like a nice spot in Georgia, a little over 10,000 in the town proper and not too densly populated in that area, according to my map. It'll be too cold there for the snakes to be moving around in January, heck it might get down to freezing by then.

I'm originally from Birmingham, AL and used to go over to Atlanta a lot. I would strongly suggest you AVOID Atlanta at all costs. Driving through Atlanta is a good way to get run over. The freeways in Atlanta are a lot like Indy 500. If you're coming straight down the coast and then gonna angle over, you're in good. If you go through Alabama, whatever you do don't speed through Heflin, Alabama. It's a trap!! If there's any way you can take a day or so to detour and see Savannah, it's worth it. I'd take Savannah over New Orleans any day of the year.

It should be a beautiful part of the country. Georgia is very green, with rich land and the friendliest people you ever saw. I hope you enjoy your visit! :)

Marc, if you order breakfast anywhere there in Georgia, you're gonna get served grits. Best thing to do is just smile and say thanks and you don't have to eat them if you don't want to. LOL!

Don't worry about eating the grits--remember--catsup is the universal taste killer!

Don't ruin them with ketchup, get a side order of red-eye gravy to drown them in. You might even ask for seconds ;^)

Catsup on grits? People have been hung around here for less than that.:)

Newgen    Posted 12-21-2003 at 10:44:47       [Reply]  [No Email]
Sorry--didn't mean to ruffle any feathers and fer sher don't wanna get hanged, how about if I rephrase it--"Grits could make a good taste enhancer for catsup"?? Hey I think catsup on crackers is a delicacy!!

Cosmo    Posted 12-21-2003 at 14:15:06       [Reply]  [No Email]
Do you mean catsup on Georgia Crackers or on saltine crackers? Just kidding about the hanging. It's been about twenty years since we've done that. The environmentalists say it causes stress to the trees.

Newgen    Posted 12-21-2003 at 17:25:04       [Reply]  [No Email]
Well I was refering to saltines but I'd sure like to try Georgia crackers. Is there a Georgia catsup to go with them? Thank God for the treehuggers saving my a$$. I knew they had to be good for something!
