Downtown Athens....

We were off and running after we ate lunch downtown this week..this post is for all of you out there that still are in love with your old college alma mater is almost time for the students to come back and it is a bittersweet time for us native Athenians....our sleepy, quiet little town gets an influx of about 35,000 students and it is no longer 'our town' but we have to share until they all go away again at Christmas break...ahhh the joys of living in a college town.....but I wouldn't have it any other way.  I do dearly love my town...

So this is a little stroll through downtown on a very HOT Thursday about a week before school starts....or starts to start......and with two brothers in the lead most of the way....lots of laughter and lots of smiles from the other people on the we go...I hope you enjoy...I surely did..and Will and Mac had a ball discovering anything and everything...kinda hard to explain the cigarette butt holders on the parking meters..especially when a little hand is way down in it trying to retrieve whatever he can find down there...I finally just settled for 'YUK  you don't want to put your hand in there!!!!!"  in my kind grandmotherly voice...wink, wink   and explaining to them that they did NOT want to go down there where DT's Down Under used to be and the reeking of beer and was quite an adventure seeing it through little eyes....LOL  

College Square
