Memories of Atlanta

Betsy at Stone Mountain Park, Atlanta, Georgia. June 2, 2001.

Since my bride is away for most of this week, I’ve been looking over some pictures of our life together.  (Can you tell that I miss her?)

Three weeks before we were married in June, 2001, Betsy and I were invited to the wedding of the son of Betsy’s friend, Susan.  Susan is one of the Get-Away Gang that is with Betsy in Maggie Valley this week, and she and Betsy have been friends since grade school.  The wedding was in Atlanta and we were invited to the rehearsal dinner Friday night as well as the wedding on Saturday.

Since we were free for most of the day on Saturday, Betsy and I took advantage of the opportunity to visit Stone Mountain Park near Atlanta, which is where the picture above was taken.  In addition to admiring the carving on the mountain and the covered bridge, we took the tram to the top of the mountain.  (That was before we got serious about hiking — I’m sure Betsy would insist on hiking to the top nowadays.)

    Enjoy the time apart George, make hay, then rush the jobs thru just before Betsy comes

    Nice shot.

    A break apart, makes you closer when reunited.

    I can sympathize. When I have to stay at home while my husband’s away, I always have such a hard time sleeping. Just keep yourself busy and she’ll be back before you know it.

    This is such a sweet post though, and I’m sure Betsy will appreciate it very much.

    You two seem to have been perfect for each other from the very beginning!

    We use to like visiting Stone Mtn. too George. It’s such an interesting place. That carving is really amazing. I can’t imagine what it would be like to see it up real close.
