The Twenty Second Day...

The Gastonian in Savannah, GA.

...a day with the family you'll never forget

So many days ran through my mind just now. I have been doing everything within my power to keep these posts jovial and lighthearted....

Let's see...

*shakes head no* ...nah, not that.

*flips through photo album*

Well, I don't have a pic for it...but, my family reunion in Savannah, GA was nice. I remember wanting to visit Paula Deen's restaurant, but it turned out that not only were we late getting there...we needed to reserve ahead of time.

My mom, sis, Aunt/Godmommy Yvette and I drove around Savannah taking in the old time architecture. I saw so many wonderful buildings with huge windows and and beautifully ornate moldings. Aunt Yvette lives in GA so she came through to see us. We found some hole in the wall to eat was good...but, the company was better.

Once we found our way back to the hotel...we prepared for our banquet. It was nice as usual. Lots of stories, genealogy, performances and mingling to meet the family you don't already know.

The day before...we'd had our BBQ and the kids swam afterwards at the hotel. (The BBQ was at another venue). After that, us young ones hopped in a couple of cars and went bowling with the kids. We had SO much fun! Once we left there, the cousins and I found ourselves a 24hr Walmart...kicking around in a desolate store looking for shoes for me. We had a ball.

I tell ya one's a HELLUVA long drive home from GA. Good GRIEF I felt like we were in that car forever. LOL I mean we stopped off to my uncle's house in NC...but, once on the road back up to NY, I felt like I was gonna die in a van. I swear NEW JERSEY is a problem! LONG ass state. I was convinced I was in a damn Stephen King novel called, "Mt. Holly". Shit. Damn...END already. (AND NJ manure and sewage). Sorry Jersey folks...but it does to us outsiders. lol

Once we got was like being reborn. I saw my bed and whispered sweet nothings to it for at least a day.

So there...Savannah, GA circa 2006.

I used to always say that if you were gonna give the world an enema, you'd have to stick the tube in New Jersey. But to be's a pretty state. It's not called The Garden State for no've just gotta look around more places than Newark and Mount Holly.

By the way, I've always wanted to go to that Paula Deen restaurant in Savannah too.

Thee_Kween said...

Oh, it's a gorgeous state, Reggie...smells like the shit they use to garden, is all. lol
