I'm The Protagonist

This blog is all about me!  These are my words and my pictures.  Where does it say that protagonists have to be good looking?

So, here is my Immature or Amateur or Premature   Photo Journalism blog.   I hope y'all come back, ‘y’hear?

This is Doug.  Doug and I did not know each other until the day I took this picture.  Doug and I were pallbearers at Anna’s cousin’s husband’s funeral.  He was a co-worker for Cobb County Government.

The burial was at Kennesaw Memorial Mountain Cemetery.  After Doug and I did our duty, we walked around looking at various tombstones’ inscriptions, just to past the time.  We got near the Catholic burial section and he mentioned his uncle’s brother is buried “here”.

“My father’s brother is buried here too.”  I said.  We decided to find his uncle’s brother’s grave and my dad’s brother’s grave.”   We looked and found IT.  Both of us were looking for Dick Hunter’s grave.

His uncle is Doug Hunter.  His mother is Doug Hunter’s wife Lolagene’s sister.  And, of course Doug is also my dad’s brother and Dick’s.  Doug and I had the same uncle.

Small world.

Antioch Baptist Church, Union Co, Ga, Cemetery

When we are driving on the back roads of North Georgia, where many of my descendants and distant relatives were raised, it is hard for me to past by a cemetery without stopping.  I found five distant kin randomly in the Antioch Baptist Church Cemetery in Union County, Ga.

Brandi's Mama

Through the years I have posted several articles about Brandi and her hot dog eatery;   I  mentioned her low-cut blouses.

I am impressed with the relaxed way Brandi runs her business.  She never seems to get in a rush and takes time to talk with and listen to you.

Once a truck driver from Florida was driving through Marietta and he had read my blog and found Brandi interesting.  Being resourceful, somehow, he found our home telephone number and called me to ask Brandi’s street address.   He called about 5 pm and I had to tell him Brandi’s closes at 3.

Brandi is from Cartersville and owns the Brandi's there.  Some people may prefer that one, they are opened on Saturdays and you have a choice of regular or spicy chili on your hot dogs.  Her Marietta store only has spicy chili, unless they changed things.

Years ago when I was high school it was Marble Mill BBQ owned by Judge Ravan, who lived near.  We used to slip off campus and go there for lunch.  We got caught once.

It became Betty's World Famous Hot Dogs which lasted many years, and Betty sole it to Brandi, retired, and died.

Sprayberry Crossing Shopping Center

Nice shipping center abandoned by most stores.  Now, it is a center for homeless and druggies.  The cemetery, which was there first, is holding up owners trying to sell it for a handsome price. 

There was a well attended town hall meeting with the locals this week to voice their opinions on what should be done about this shit-hole.  It was just to get rid of hot-air, it is up to the owners what to do.
