The Park Service has been working on the pathway leading up to Dr. Martin Luther King's home. But I think you can make out the fact that he was born in the house shown below on January 15, 1929. Had he lived, he would have been 85 years old this past January. This is where [...]
I can be in Atlanta on Friday with all the "horn blowing" crazies and wake up on Saturday morning under a Toccoa sky. That's now and who knows how long it will last. But the one thing I do know is that I love breakfast at BJ's in Toccoa. In fact, I diet all week [...]
I'm definitely living the Tale of Two Cities. Cows and the country on the weekends but during the week: it is everything from soup to nuts in Atlanta. The reason I took this photo was because of Chipley. There's a cow on the roof of this building with a king's crown. And we know he [...]
On of our favorite winter walks is at Anna Ruby Falls where we usually see some pretty amazing scenery and never worry about wet trails because the pathway is paved. One year, the park ranger had a table set up and was showing wildlife skins to children. He even took time to show a bobcat [...]
One of the things that the dogs and PJ (the cat) love about the house in Toccoa is the windows. They can sit for hours and look out over the front yard and dream of the characters in Jack London's novels. Then they can look back to make sure someone is still near.
One of my favorite places to visit is Tallulah Gorge. I always titled my posts of this area "Living above the Rim." But that was when I was living only twenty minutes away. This day, the winter shadows were long and the gorge was dark. It was an expected view though I always forget that [...]
We finally got some snow early this morning and the dogs were much happier than they were with the ice. They just could walk on it. Cocoa even played (not in the photo) a little. Chip is just happy anytime there's a potential for something to be messy and wet. He loves being outside. [...]
PJ loved having me home and pretty much stayed in this position all day. In fact, he is still in the same place which is on the sofa behind me. Well, I just checked and he has turned around is facing a different way. But yep, in the same spot. We were supposed to have [...]
