Well, after a long weekend in the North Georgia mountains near Helen, eating lots of fried food and pork products, I managed to survive the onslaught on my arteries and make it back home to the land of soy products and veggies. It's great to have a blow out weekend of eating and drinking, but if I lived that way all the time, I'd definitely shorten my existence. It was a great time to be in the mountains, we went tubing down the Chattahoochee River into Helen and that was quite refreshing. Of course, as a welcome home present, when I got in the Pathfinder to go to the bank this afternoon, the outside temperature showed a balmy 106 degrees. Fahrenheit. I guess these are truly the dog days of summer. Heat index was supposed to hit 117 or some ridiculous number today.
