Georgia is on My Mind

Our stretch on I-95 is a long haul.  We try to break it up but we also want to get to our destination as soon as possible.  On the way home, we stopped at the Welcome Station in Georgia and listened in on suggestions for good places to eat.  Dickey's Barbecue Pit in Pooler seemed to get the most votes from the very helpful staff.

Dickey's is located at the end of a small strip mall on US 80 off Exit 102.  What a good smelling place!  Rhonda, the hostess invited us to have a seat at a blue checkered table while waiting for our order.  "Be sure you save for ice cream." she cautioned.

The young chef suggested that we try slow cooked brisket with baked beans loaded with bits and pieces of meat.  My husband also ordered creamy coleslaw.  I had smoked turkey with Dickey's special BBQ sauce and well-cooked green beans with bacon bits for seasoning.

The food was served on brown 100% unbleached, chlorine free paper cut to fit an aluminum tray.  The plastic spoons, knives, and forks were sparkling like fancy silver.

It is still too hot and humid to even think about starting a fall garden in northern Florida.  The garden centers are still bare of vegetable plants.

In this sweltering heat, Georgia is still on my mind but listening to Ray Charles gives me the chills.

Ray Charles was born in Albany Georgia but attended the School for the Deaf and the Blind in St. Augustine Florida and later on sat in with the Florida A&M University student band in Tallahassee and found the capitol of Florida musically exciting.

Take a listen and enjoy one of Georgia's finest musicians.  
Thank you for visiting my blog and have a great weekend.
