Tuesday's Touring Newnan.....City Of Homes....

It's Tuesday again, one of my favorite days of the week because I get to show places of interest that we love about our beautiful town. Prince and I painted all day long yesterday at the new lovenest. Needless to say, I'm feeling a little lackluster this morning!! We are headed back over to have another go at it today. We are actually making a lot of progress over there. It already looks like a different house entirely. Oh, I'm digressing.......here are a few snaps of place and things that we saw this last week while taking little drives.......

This is my personal favorite!! This sign made Prince laugh out loud and say (mind you, you have to be hearing this in his very British accent..) "See there, I told yall all (Brit speak for yall) that The King was still alive! You should learn to listen to me more often Reggie Girl". Ummm...whatever.

The Major Convenience Store off of Hwy 16. It's not JUST convenience.....it's "major" convenience.!!

The Old Tin Gin, old cotton gin and store on Hwy 16 complete with Marlboro Red signs gracing either side of the moniker. Gotta love that.

This is an Indian Chief carved with a chain saw in someone's front yard in Sargent, Georgia. I think this is amazing and I love the old replica of the covered wagon, without the cover mind you, beside it. I love this yard everytime I see it because it's so very Americana.

I hope you enjoyed this little tour of our slice of heaven here in beautiful Newnan, Georgia.

  3. Loved the tour. Great photos.

  4. Mildred.....thanks so much. I love my little town and all it's big charm :)....

    Bella, yeah......please don't tell anyone okay. I'm not aging. Are you aging? And gracefully? Somehow, I doubt that :)...... I aging with vodka, wine and a good mositerizer!!

  5. great photos and elvis in concert?? how long as that sign been there? good luck with the painting and the move!

  6. I love the quirkiness of old southern towns. Thank you so much for sharing. Did you blog about the house you are fixin' (see I can do southern speak)? If so, I'll have to check your archives.

  7. Annie, that sign has actually only been there 2 days. I can't believe that Elvis is coming to Newnan. Or is it the ghost of Elvis...hmmm

    Hey Michelle, no I haven't blogged the new house yet....I'm taking before and after snaps and will definately post them next week.
    By the way, great job on the southern speak :)

  12. I spent the happiest 8 years of my life in Doraville, GA (north of Atl). I haven't been back in years - I'm told it has changed a lot, but I'd still love to live there again.

  13. Hi MMMRS: thanks for posting these pix of your funny town. I live in a funny part of Montana and have thought about posting funny pictures here, too. I just might do it now that you've inspired me. I posted some "street fashion" last week--I loved sharing how people in my town dress. In any case I also appreciated your post about past relationships and learning new behavior. Thank you for being so honest with strangers...we have so much more in common than not.

    Look forward to reading more.

    hugs, Patty

  15. I always did wonder where the King would start his comeback tour. Newnan. Wow. Who'd a thought?

  16. what a fun little tour. Look, I know we just met and all, but could you pick me up two of those tickets to see Elvis? ;-)

  17. Thats a cool sign! Elvis in concert! The thing is...it could have been a different Elvis. Hehehehe!

  18. Thanks for the tour! Elvis - in Newman? Keeping a low profile. I think that covered wagon is actual size - people were a lot smaller back then.

  19. So how was Elvis?

    What colors are you painting the house?

  20. I'm commenting - why can't we see it?

  21. Nice photos, Reggie girl. So that is Georgia?

  22. Hahaha... can't wait to see the next tour! ;D

    FF&F....thanks, you're sweet :)

    Jeannie.....I love this ittle town :)

    Loida.....I'm so very glad to know you....

    Hausfrau.....I think Doraville is about an hour from here. Yeah, I agree things have definately changed....everywhere though, you know?

    Sallymandy.....I think that you should just do it!!

    Atticclutter....you're a nice lady :)

    Caution Flag....of course Elvis would make a comeback here.....where else did you think it was going to be??? He and I need to have a bacon sandwich 2gether, lol...

    Imbeingheldhostage...sure I'll get you tickets girl. It's the least that I can do for a fellow inmate....

    Ron.....you know good and well it's the real Elvis. They can't possibly be yanking our chain right? Right???

    MuseSwings....I think you're right on both observations :).....

    Jewels.....I don't know yet, but I'll definately let you know on the 22nd. I'll send you snaps of the house.....I love it!!

    Dr. Zibbs.....don't you want to go see him with us? Don't be jealous :(....

    Vina......thanks, you're a sweetie :)....

  24. Hey, your town could be my hometown! That means I am a real city girl.....I live in a nearby state. First time to leave a comment, I will be back though, gotta see that lovenest! Elvis is alive and well, in our hearts and our stomachs every time we eat a fried peanut butter and nanner sammich!!! You gotta just believe!

  25. You'll have to post a report on the concert. How does he look? Has he lost his voice? Is he wearing leather or a bejeweled jump suit?


I'm listening.....and while you're at it PLEASE make me laugh!!
