"I have downloaded a lot of nineteenth century travel narratives from ManyBooks, even including Stanley's account of his awful trek to find Dr. Livingston (who refused to return...was in ill health and apparently gone native)."

John Burton further comments; I, too, am a native Georgian. Born Hoboken, moved to Baxley, thence to Oak Ridge, TN. Was a fundie but now a freethinker. Hisory, biography and science. Former pilot; retired hotelier. I suspect you might delight in the writings of Robert Green Ingersoll with samples on Kindle. Good to know another Georgian.

Yes, I'm still enjoying the Kindle. The trees are budding out here. It's getting warmer, too, but there are no flowers yet.

Sure, I know Houston county -not intimately, but well enough. My parents live in the Vineville area in Macon. There are several historical homes in their area - their's is not - it's only 100! They are also not of historical interest, having only arrived recently in Macon's history, just under 1/2 century ago. :) I'm embarrased to say that I do not remember the city's history. We did learn quite a bit in elementary school, but it's been replaced by other stuff by now (in my brain). What, to you, was compelling enough for you to write the book?

Did you go to Mercer or Weslyan ? I was at Mercer for a summer semester when I was in highschool. I had Dr. Mary Wilder for 2 classes - Lit & Composition - her nickname was "Bloody Mary" - pretty accurate for the state she left our papers in. She had no mercy for the smattering of highschoolers in her class.

Thanks for the kitty compliment. She seems to have longish hair for a tuxedo, my Mom has one too that has shorter hair, but she definitely has the tuxedo personality!

Hey Kristina,

Do you remember the writer Rod McKuen? He was a poet/song writer in the 60's and 70's. What happened to him?

That's what I'm talking about. The 50's and 60's was real music! Oh, that book was it $0.99?
