It would be worthwhile seeing parts of the creepy old South, I think, especially for people who suffer constant freezing and snow blizzards in the winter, they should visit here then. I noticed a charming colorful oil painting of Maya Angelou smiling real big or laughing, in a store window downtown. I get into some aspects of small Southern town life...next Saturday a thing will be held for an aspiring D.A. in one of the two party houses behind my house-- in a civitan hut, a chicken bog bingo event, and I plan to drop in. I won't pay $50.00 to play bingo, though! I plan to comment to him that it's ironic so much crime happens in this county where there's a church seemingly almost on every corner and I'll say it's largely because of rampant poverty and not even jobs here, I think, and that perhaps we should resort to the Communism economic system--become Communists--I hope I can say that last with a straight face, seeming serious, I'll be secretly amused to witness the would-be D.A.'s reaction, LOL

I love the south, Pinkie.
We've been to Florida, Virginia Beach, South Carolina. I would love to go to Georgia or Atlanta or New Orleans. We talked about maybe driving down. I love the south. I love how the States are so different, and the South is like a different country on its own. And the people were so friendly and welcoming. When you said Savannah, Ga, (Savannah) I immediately thought of Gone With The Wind, when Scarlet's upset and her mother suggests she could go to Atlanta, to visit Aunt Pitty (I think was her name) and Melonie. Scarlet says Georgia! And Mammy looks at her and says, : Atlanta! Scarlett : Savannah would be better for ya. You'd just get in trouble in Atlanta. Mammy : What trouble are you talking about? Scarlett : You know what trouble I's talkin' 'bout. I's talking 'bout Mr. Ashley Wilkes. He'll be comin' to Atlanta when he gets his leave, and you sittin' there waitin' for him, just like a spider. He belongs to Miss Melanie... Mammy : You go pack my things like Mother said. Scarlett I love that movie and book.

I have never been to the South. I'd love to experience some parts of it as I know it's beautiful.
