Statesboro, Georgia

It is good to be home again after our road trip to South Georgia! We saw lots of flat land and green crops, we identified the tobacco growing, and the others may have been peanuts? We saw folks buying locally grown raw peanuts at Walmart to take home to boil. There were roadside produce stands with green striped watermelons for sale. It sure was hot there, prediction for this week was triple digits! Good to be home to the cooler mountains once again.

Georgia Southern is a long way down I-16. I think that's the most boring road in Georgia! Good thing you got done before the triple digits. Yesterday was a hot one here! Glad all is well.

I always see those boiled peanut signs when I travel but I don't reckon I've ever ate any. We grew peanuts in our garden a couple of years and we always baked them, never boiled. That just don't sound good. Glad you got back to blogging!

Hi - happened upon your blog - I am in south Georgia in the southwestern part of the state. I like your blog!

And...Byron doesn't know what he is missing not eating boiled peanuts.
