Enjoyable Evening with Great Company

Rex and I had talked back and forth on a number of VT forums over the last couple of years and when I found myself on an extended business trip to Atlanta starting in September, 2011 I let Rex know that I would be in town and if he wanted to get together for dinner I would love to do that.

And with that Rex invited me out to his home town of Decatur which was only a short 10 minute walk and 30 minute train ride from the hotel where I was staying. Rex's wife Sacra and another Atlanta VT member Chris (Balfor) joined me for a nice quiet 3 hour evening dinner.

If my trip extends longer we will probably be getting together once again.

Statues Around the Courthouse

I arrived a little early so that I could walk a little bit around the square near where the restaurant was located. Talked to a lady from the Red Cross and became a Contributing Member (I've donated money to them in the past, so I decided after her talk to become a regular monthly donor).

I saw a couple of statues on the one side of the old Courthouse. This one was of an elderly couple still "very much in love".

A Virginian in Georgia

On the other side of the walk was a sculpture/statue of Thomas Jefferson.
