Augusta GA

Short business trip to Augusta tonight, is there anyplace I should be sure to visit while I'm there?

Aquascape? I'm a crypt farmer.

It's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

That IS an aquascape, it's titled "The Vacant Lot".

Yeah the place seemed a little on the, uh, boring side. The two single guys I attended the meetings with dragged me into a Hooters because I said I had never been in one.

I spent dinner watching them get whiplash. That was the extent of the extra curricular activities.

I wanted a steak. So they drag me into a wings joint.

In any event, it was entertaining to watch them display why they are still single. (them)

Dawgger: The Animaniacs are one of my favorites, using the state capital and presidents songs to help my kids in school. Not quite School House Rock, but still pretty good.

Gadawg, you really made me homesick with that one. I kept thinking of fries and fetta and a dirty water dog from the cart on the corner of clayton st all day.

Did Rockys pizza really close?

Yeah, I miss The Grill too...I've always tried to make my own Feta dip, but it comes out wrong...smells horrible too...

I'm not sure if Rocky's closed...but Steverino's definitely hasn't!! They opened up another!!!

By the ways, your blog 'bout Hawaii is hilarious!!

"Made me feel like I was back in Georgia. A stop light in the middle of nowhere. " Can we say 316 from Atlanta to Athens!!!!

And I suppose the wife left this one: "Zach working hard at his laptop. Wonder what website he's checking out? Could it be an aquarium message board?"

Well, The Grill isn't closed but Rocky's is. The Varsity still has horrible drive through service, but wonderful chilli dogs and choclate shakes. Everything is the same as I left it in general. We went to Athens night before last, just to look around and get an italian soda from blue sky and its changed names and owners so in all essance its closed as well. By the end of the night we ended up at Flannagian's for a few..... like we haad never left.

Happy holidays all

Cheers,
Z
