Last night the Warden and I took a gallon of home made ice cream and headed to Atlanta. Each year the citizens of Atlanta host a weekend long Labor Day celebration. People from all over come join in the revelry; Families come home to have reunions; and I go to get a bowl of ice cream!
Well last night was no different from past years. The city park was covered with people of all ages, each carrying a plate of food. There were old timers comparing notes and seeing who could " 'member the most", grandparents showing off their grandkids, grandkids moving at sonic speed, teenage boys checking out teenage girls and the usual political wannabe's shaking a few hands.
While there I talked to Bret and Robin (I nearly shot his wife 32 years ago ... but that's another story!) But they are a loyal Labor Day celebrationist now and return to Atlanta every year for the festivities. Bret is also a good photographer and has recorded the celebration for several years. Click here to see some of his pictures.
Tomorrow the Warden and I will return to Atlanta and watch the parade and visit again with old friends of by gone years. If you want some good times .... come join us.
