Bye Bye Bulldogs

20160414_082828Have you ever had the opportunity to drive to Athens, GA, also known as Bulldog Country?  If your starting point is Columbia, SC, you will drive west on Interstate 20.  Other than driving through Lexington Peach Country – where most of the most delicious SC peaches originate, there is nothing else spectacular until exit 138.  It didn’t bother me that this big city girl was following a large piece of farm equipment on a winding two lane rural highway.  It gave me the opportunity to enjoy the scenery.  Farm country.  Rolling hills.  Green fields.  Cows and bulls and horses, oh my!  Beautiful antebellum homes.  Not the route Sherman marched to the sea.

We are a culture where everything needs to happen immediately.  As golfer Walter Hagen said, “You’re only here for a short visit.  Don’t hurry.  Don’t worry.  And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.”  And I did.
