As exciting as it is to start a vacation, it is usually just as exciting to come home. That is especially true when you've been gone for a month! We got an early start to avoid the worst of the Atlanta rush hour traffic. Unfortunately, no bagel toppers for breakfast. Mix in a screaming child, and finally being east of the Mississippi River, and we opted for a Chick-Fil-A breakfast. Oh, how we've missed Chick-Fil-A! In fact, we've missed it so much that we stopped there ...
... I ordered butter beans, mac and cheese, and fried okra, topped off with a cheese biscuit, and none of that was a mistake; oh, and pickled beets rounded out the 4 choice veggie platter.
The veggies were garden fresh, perfectly seasoned, and the cheese biscuit was light and fluffy, yet filling, and oh, so tasty. I overheard a regular customer who ...
... he learned that Jens was from Denmark he said, "Welcome to the United States. I hope you have a pleasant stay here in the south." We did not get a ticket but rather a rather pleasant welcome to the south. I liked that!"

Talk to you tomorrow.
