Mr. Mugwump has been reading The Adventures of Brer Rabbit to Annie since she was tiny. He would tell them to her when she was small enough to ride in a backpack, on his back, while they explored our local park. She brings a copy in the car when she knows they will have a little time to read while I pop out to run an errand. When we were in Atlanta a few weeks ago, we made a return trip to the home of Joel Chandler Harris...the author of the Uncle Remus Tales. This was Annie's choice...her pick of the trip. A delightful guide told us all sorts of fun facts about the man and the tales he created. Since we have a copy of the book from a previous visit twenty years ago, Annie picked a t-shirt as a remembrance of our day.
Annie beamed the entire visit.
Piedmont Park was Mr.M.'s choice. This beautiful spot in located right in Midtown Atlanta. If you've seen the movie Life as We Know It, this is where "Messer" went for a run early in the movie.
This park "feels" like Central Park in NYC...and was designed by the son of Central Park's designer. We had a long walk around...Mr.M. had already run his morning eight miles here at sunrise.
There are advantages to "bringing up the rear", my whole world is in front of me.
Have a great weekend...thanks for stopping by and saying hello!
Enjoy the day,
