One of my favorite places to eat on the weekends is at the Midtown Grill in Clarkesville. These guys know how to cook burgers and they are serious about it. Funny thing: I always get the Atlanta burger that is covered with grilled peaches and grilled onions. Pat and Anne talk over the menu . [...]
Friends and dogs were out for an evening on the Marietta Square, and Cocoa Joy loves being with people. She has always been mischievous! Too bad I know her like a very well read book. In this photo, she's watching me to see if I'm going to tell her to stop begging the person next [...]

It actually caused me to forget that I was supposed to be out on the lake with a kayak! Our trek began at the familiar Old Sautee Store outside [...]
