state by state speak your mind about...georgia

another mixed bag
as a gator i see georgia and say...meh
i cannot leave florida without going into it and its huge
takes forever to cross unless you go the coastal route
and then
there is savannah.....the best town in the south
there are others like her old grande belles who will flip up their skirts and dance
but savannah......she does the cancan with no bloomers
and atlanta is a history tour all its own
milledgeville the only city designed to be the state capital and then unused
stone mountain is a work of wonder despite the story it tells
and then there is the appalachian trail starting in north georgia
georgia is worth the trip

state by state speak your mind about...indiana

indiana i have been through one time driving
it was pretty and pastoral
many farms and a lot of farming
several cities of good size
indianapolis was very impressive
the largest road kill i have ever seen was the deer all along the side of the interstate
huge creatures but not the best way to see them
indiana is another place i hope to return to with more time to explore

state by state speak your mind about...kentucky

i like kentucky
i have family there and i love visiting
great geography sweet people very beautiful women and good food
add a tradition of great basketball and you have for some a total package
kentucky is one of the southern states(actually kentucky is a commonwealth)that did not leave the union
kentucky has a history going back to the beginnings of recorded time and has been home to some of our most flambouant if not distinguished citizens
the home of col sanders and the louisville slugger
a trip to kentucky is a fun time
