Short Notes – 8.27.13

Ok folks, need your help… God’s Country still has a Drive-In movie …. yes a Drive-In.  We don’t have a movie theater but we do have a Drive-In…. and MANY MANY MANY young memories have been made at that Drive-In theater!  Next year, digital conversion will shut-down Drive-in theatres around the country, but Honda is sponsoring the Project Drive-In to save these great pieces of Americana.  I ask you.. .go Vote for Tiger Drive-In in Tiger, GA and help save mine!  Thanks!

A beautiful love story.

The Ranting Chef is this week’s Tuesday 10 feature.

Today the Life’s Playlist features Otis Redding.  (Note of trivia, when I was doing my student internship SO SO many years ago, Otis Redding’s youngest daughter Karla was my instructor.)

When Pat Robertson and others like him spread their viscous lies, my first thought is, WWJD?

Interesting tidbit, I did my student internship at the Perimeter Mall in Atlanta, GA.  Otis Redding’s daughter Karla was one of my mentors there.

Back in those days I had yet to be “tamed.”  One day after pushing her buttons as far as I could push them, Karla came to my desk and said “McDonald’s NOW!”

Over french fries and a Coke, Karla tamed me beneath the Golden Arches and watchful eye of Ronald McDonald.
