... if you want to know a place, you have to talk to the locals... tourists are just passing rubberneckers.. they breeze in with some brochures, spend some cash, and then dash back to their normal lives with a sunburn and a hangover.. thinking they have seen the City... they are 100% wrong...

... I am just back in from visiting with friends in Savannah, and I have to tell you.. their is no finer way to get to know a Great Southern City than by hanging with a crew of locals... Acidman, Catfish, Recondo32, Georgia, and Velociman.. children, between those guys, they know everything there is to know about that mysterious, moss-covered city... political bosses, corruption, streaking downtown, The Studebaker, coastal island-hopping, or cooking oysters on a car hood... those boys rock... they make this hillbilly see them & their city in a light that you don't get from brochures..

... as Key and I were standing in that graveyard, I could not help but notice the beauty of the place... tucked into a residential corner of a great city - a quiet, peaceful place... with trees spaced occasionally.. Spanish moss, mockingbirds, and sunlight... I saw a side of the real Savannah yesterday morning...

You said a mouthful there honey and I'm so glad you were able to go and be there for your friend in this difficult time...

Beautifully written, dude.

Glad you came. Give me a little more time and then you two can come and stay with me for a while. We will shoot at some gators and may have one for supper.

We need to spend a week there, bro. Truly get a feel for the place. We never even got around to discussing the gay bars. Wait a minute... we did, didn't we?

Wait...Is there a topic you two didn't cover?
I dunno. But I have the straw, and I'm putting it on ebay.

.. dammit, Key.. that is just wrong... how much?...

Oh, you want a "buy it now" price? 2 drinks.

(This buys me a drink plus gets me out of the hole for the one I still owe you!)
