Peaches and Cream

Atlanta has always been one of my favorite cities. I remember the days when we would travel in the family station wagon {snowbirds} from my Mich. hometown to southwestern Fla. I-75 is a direct route from Mich. to Tampa and runs through Atlanta. We always stayed over there. It is such a clean city...a far cry from the mid-western cities like Detroit, Chicago or Cleveland with their automotive and steel industries. We used to go to the city below the city... Atlanta's famous underground. A complete underground town filled with shops, restaurants and nightclubs. I used to ask my dad if that was the true "Atlantis" without water. The pics are what are to be believed the beginning of Atlanta...Fort Peachtree. It is a very busy city, but this week will be unusually busy with all 3 NASCAR events being held there.

Back at the Cottage... It's been a harsh late winter and our utility bill proves it!! They are a greedy bunch of S.O.B's...maybe it's time to consider coal... or we could pitch tents at Fort Peachtree...

The biggest problem with not working is now that I have the time to travel with NASCAR, I don't have the money. I would love to go to Atlanta for a race sometime.
