... and hanging out for a little while. Kevin's home backs up to a huge piece of property where they get all kinds of wild animals wondering about. Kevin says the only dangerous ones might be the coyotes.
The Stricklin's hospitality was for us to stay and eat or stay over night, but the call beckoning home was strong. We hit the road late in the afternoon to get south of Atlanta so we wouldn't have to face Monday traffic. The plan was to get home ...
... strange. And the mall was massive. Before going in we ate at Johnny rockets. We had a really lovely burger and it was a traditional American fast food style bar. When we saw the movie I have never seen such a fancy screen in my life. The chairs were like red leather sofas and the seats really reclined. The movie, guardians of the galaxy was really funny. We would defo see it ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Hotel Magnolia of Jonesboro
I was staying their for two weeks and by the second week me and my fiance started to break out with bed bugs. At first he had it so and I didn't have any signs of it but they got me too!!!! It was horrible!!!!!!! You have no phone and limited channels and they don't want you to have any guest!!!!!!! Don't waste your time people if your in Jonesboro your better off going to another place. "Tara Inn Suites" would be your best bet.....
