Because "Liquor" just sounds evil, Down here it's "Package" store. We live in the middle of a dry county so a Package store is a twenty mile drive any direction, Lucky I gave it up but I need it for cooking and the girls wanted wine, so a beautiful fall drive to Palmetto with the ladies. I really think that Coweta county is dry because the moonshiners have a really powerful lobby group but that's niether here nor there. Package stores do know their customers here vey well. Because package stores are magnets for inebriated patrons, let's sink rail road rails deep in conctrete in front of the store in case they think it's a drive through.

Say what you will about the cause for which they fought, this guy had courage. Sherman had kicked their ass all the way from Tennessee and they took their stand north of Atlanta at Kennesaw Mountain. They lost but at a great cost to the union army. But this battle broke the back of the confederate army guarding the industrial giant of Atlanta.

She said that the flight was smooth and that she was not groped by the TSA at the airport. She said she was very disappointed.
Mike the Headless Chicken (April 1945 – March 1947), also known as Miracle Mike, was a chicken that lived for 18 months after his head had been mostly cut off. Thought by many to be a hoax, the bird was taken by his owner to the
University of Utah in to establish its authenticity. Salt Lake City
On August 16, 1960, Joseph W. Kittinger made a high altitude jump from the Excelsior III at 102,800 feet (31,300 m). The project was research into high altitude bailouts. He made a series of three extreme altitude parachute jumps from an open gondola carried aloft by large helium balloons. Towing a small drogue parachute for initial stabilization, he fell for four minutes and 36 seconds, reaching a maximum speed of 614 miles per hour before opening his parachute at 18,000 feet. Pressurization for his right glove malfunctioned during the ascent, and his right hand swelled up to twice its normal size. He set historical numbers for highest balloon ascent, highest parachute jump, longest drogue-fall (four minutes), and fastest speed by a human being through the atmosphere. I believe it is still the record. Oh, and he is still alive at 82 years old. This dude had guts.

This marker sits down on the corner of Millard Farmer Road. Back then it was called Rickety Back Road. Cool name for a road huh? They are still finding artifacts there. Last year someone dug up a cannon ball. They plan to turn this area into a park. Cool! Oh by the way, the confedrates won this battle.. We are going exploring today. Will post our discoveries later. Happy Saturday.

Passed by the famous Barbie Beach in Turin, Ga. this morning. They were still set up for Veterans' Day. I don't know what the Barbie Beach is all about. Free speech I think. I am for free speech too, especially this kind. One time I glanced over while passing by and could swear I saw naked Barbie and naked Ken in a compromising position. Well not that kind of free speech so much, But carry on the fight Barbie Beach people whoever you are.
