Not long after we acquired Frank TAA (The Adventurous Ape) in 2009, we took him along with us on vacation to St Simons Island. Before we left Atlanta, though, a true welcoming to the family was in order. Nowhere in Atlanta says that like The Varsity. The Georgia Holy Grail of fast food, The Varsity takes the most unhealthy food ever (hamburgers and hot dogs) and transforms it into further artery-choking goodness by dipping it in giant vats of grease. If you've been to Atlanta, but haven't eaten at the Varsity, then you haven't really been to Atlanta at all! Here then, is Frank at the Varsity. :)
Once we arrived in south GA, we stayed with my dear friends, Mars and Alan. Frank wasn't shy:
Alan is a firefighter in Glynn County. On our way to the beach, we stopped by the station to see him, and he graciously allowed us (and Frank) a tour of one of the trucks!
|Do you have a license to drive that, Frank?!|
After awhile, we said goodbye to Alan and headed for the beach. Frank loved the way the sea breeze rippled through his fur, and although he preferred to hang out (quite literally) under our canopy most of the time (salt water being hard to get out of his stuffing), he smiled the whole day. Me too, Frank. Me too.
