GOBAG Pulls Off Another One
Another Good Old Boys and Girls (GOBAG) Eating Meeting churned itself into another relaxing evening – or what if from 4pm to about 6pm – early late afternoon or early evening. Or maybe a very late morning.
Our guest of honor was Van Pearl Berg. Van wears two hats. He wears a Cobb County Assistant DA hat and also a Marietta City Councilman Hat. If you check back on this blog I have a picture of him and his wife dancing in the street at a concert a couple weeks ago.
Monty cooked a delicious batch of spaghetti and sauce. Roper called and told me what was being cooked and to wear a bib. I told him I would need more than a bib - likely I would need a water hose.
Pam Eaks and her husband came. They live near Athens in Statham, Barrow County* now. They were visiting kin-folks when Pam thought of our GOBAG meetings that she read on this blog and came. Somebody commented that she is still just as good looking as she used to be. I agreed, but added back then something about her made me think of a Persian cat. But she lost her Persian cat-look. She is a retired school teacher and tried doing a gig in Florida but came back to Georgia. We were glad they came and hope they return.
This is car belongs to Hugs. That is all you need to know. He bought it in 1980 and practically rebuilt everything thing. He did a lot of work on it and is rightly very proud of it. When he ran his hand along the curvature of the hood it looked so sensual I thought about being polite and look away.
A young man named Ellis showed up running for a commissioner seat. He didn't say a whole lot.
*A Barrow County or Winder (which is in Barrow County) police officer caught me speeding on Hwy 316 when we were driving back home after visiting our son. He told me should throw me in jail and said he was going to sit in his police car and think about it. I guess I passed his test. He let me go with a very expensive ticket.
