Recently, I visited the Chattahoochee Plantation Women’s Club where I met the most incredible group of ladies (many are pictured here). It is rare to make an instant connection with people, but honestly, that day felt more like Homecoming than a “meeting.” Here’s one of the lovelies holding a tray of buckeyes, the recipe is included in Farming, Friends, and Fried Bologna Sandwiches.
Now, onto other fun news, did you see the fantastic article in the Atlanta Journal Constitution about Billy Albertson? If you missed it, here is a link. Articles such as these take a lot of work. The author must first “pitch” the story to the publisher who either believes there will be enough public interest, or gives the thumbs down. After the story is approved a photographer is assigned and the one we met (Renee Brock) is a jewel. Precious. Just a precious little slice of South Georgia that’s living in Atlanta. She’s gone and made her people very proud. So, if you are happy with the Atlanta Journal story, please, please leave a comment at the end of the story. Not for my sake, but because good news stories matter. (FYI: AJC may require you to post via Facebook login).
Does your dad have “everything?” Well, he may not have a copy of Farming, Friends and Fried Bologna Sandwiches. The Decatur Book Festival encourages readers to #ReadDifferent (authors). So here is your chance. There is still time to order a copy of Farming for Father’s Day.
