Welcome To The Land Of Red Clay

Every year I have to decide whether I am staying in DC for Thanksgiving or going to Atlanta. I am certain that my situation is not a unique one. You see, my parents have been divorced since the early 1970's. So, during the holidays I have to decide which holiday I am going to spend with each parent(Mother=D.C., Father=ATL). This year I am going to take that drive to Atlanta to be with my father and my family there. I always look forward to returning to Georgia because that is where I spent all of my college years (class of '94) between Atlanta and Savannah. I'll get to see some of my friends because most of them are from the Atlanta metro area or they moved there after college. I'll also get to hang out with my younger brother. We usually head to East Atlanta, Little Five Points, or to my old spot, Apache Cafe.
Anyway, it will be good to see everyone and spend some time with people that I love and care for. I hope that all that view this blog will have a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. If Thanksgiving is not part of your cultural background or heritage then just be thankful for the love of your family and friends.
To my blog-friends, I look forward to corresponding with you after I return from Georgia. Peace & Blessings~

Ruben, Stephen, and Rose-
Thank you all for your holiday wishes. I hope that all of you had a great Thanksgiving as well.

the weather in Atlanta was fantastic on Thanksgiving day. It cooled down on Friday, but I was in South Georgia by then. :)
