Freddie Miller! He was on Channell 11 and hosted Dialing for Dollars and Stars of Tomorrow (an incredibly awful local talent show).

Do you remember a Mexican restaurant on Ponce de Leon--60's, 70's?

And a BBQ place on the way to FL--before you get to Macon?

Misty Waters, Lake Spivey and there was a lake around Lindbergh and Piedmont--I think--LOL --short term memory loss day.

We used to go swimming at Piedmont Park almost the only public pool around.

Venetian pool in Decatur. I think that one is still open?

I think you went to Aunt Fanny's cabin in Marietta, George.

And there was another similar place somewhere on Roswell Rd.

You need to go to Rogatilla in Tucker for brunch some Saturday or Sunday--starts at 9AM. All kinds of good things--time to get out the Mardi Gras beads and start celebrating. Certain the Ground Hog will say Spring is on the way.
Whine and cheese for those who don't like the Big A.
