College Orientation

Headed out of town yesterday around noon. Got into southern Georgia early enough that we decided to head straight to Savannah. Neither one of us had been there before, and we were both charmed by its . . . well, Southerness. We walked around, shopped — lots of vintage clothing stores (Harleigh found a great pair of worn-in Dingo cowboy boots and jeans) — ate dinner, witnessed the throngs of fans waiting for seating at Mother & Sons (Paula Deen's restaurant) and standing in line for her live cooking show at the theatre around the corner, then made it back in time to shower and lie on the bed with the laptop watching episodes of Modern Family and replaying portions that had us in pants-wetting laughter.

Up this morning and ready to head off to today's orientation!

The drive to Georgia Southern is quite desolate. Came across this gas station on one of our pit stops. El Cheapo . . . only here in the South.

Hand on to that One-On-Time!
I'm a little sad and very happy for you two.
What a wonderful place to go to college (and visit!).

I know exactly where the el cheapo is! Yes those are a regular here in the deep south. When are you headed back? If I can't make it over there this time, I will plan on it in August. Hope you all are having a great time. Jackie
