I am doing much better and feel just about 100%. Yesterday Shirley and I went to downtown Griffin for lunch and a walking tour of the old historic area. As many times as we've been here we have never done that. After a nice lunch we spied the visitor's center which housed a museum and art gallery. We learned that Doc Holliday was born and raised in Griffin Ga. We last met Doc in Tucson at the OK Coral shoot out. We continued our journey and learned that many films have had scenes done here. Most notable was Driving Miss Daisy. We then drove to a nicely kept Confederate Cemetery which also housed monuments memorializing all those from this area that died in the wars beginning with the Revolutionary War and ending with the Vietnam War. I am guessing since this is a very nice park, there are plans for the wars since. Pork chops on the grill for dinner and we called it a day. Last night was my last in "sickbay" and we will now reclaim our kitchen table. Enjoy the pics.
