Yes, I do wish everyone still had 19" television screens. I felt as though my head was balloonish. The people I talked with at The Chew were very nice and did have to clarify the name of our town a couple of times. I am married to a Yankee, and he seems to understand me. I think Carla Hall understood me. I will say that I talked too fast in the video and did bob my head like one of those bobbing birds (if you remember those). They bobbed their head into a container of red liquid, I believe. I was ready to bob my head into a mocha. Mochas are very comforting to me. Let me know what you think. I think my television career is dead. Discuss...
Set your DVR's, your Tivo's, your 25 year old VCR's, or just take Wednesday off!! I am about to get my 15 seconds of fame, y'all. I tweeted a response to something the great and wonderful Carla Hall put out there and now I get to appear by video on Wednesday's show. If I run into you on the street, I will sign autographs. I will not be in a picture with you , however, because I would need a makeup artist following me around town. Carla is going to update one of my momma's recipes, so we can't wait to see what happens. Make sure you tune in to ABC. The whole episode is for us Southerners, so show some support for Carla and The Chew!
If you haven't gone to pick strawberries and you live in the South, you have almost missed your opportunity. We took the proper Southern baby girl to a local farm, Payne Farm and Produce in Calhoun, GA, for their annual festival. The little one got a sticker at the ticket table, so her day was made. I really have to remember that stickers are her currency right now. They are better than a $50 bill. We walked out to the strawberry patch (I use that term loosely). Payne Farms planted what had to be a billion plants. They told us how many exactly, but I'll go with my estimate since my ADD kicked in and I didn't actually hear what they said. The baby girl was dressed in her strawberry outfit, which was eventually overwhelmed by her strawberry face. She ate quite a few and really didn't put any strawberries into the basket. She got to pet a rabbit and got freaked out by how pigs aren't as cute in person. We took the hay ride, which was very enjoyable. One of the family members was our guide, and he told us everything about the farm. I thought I would just be panicked about the baby girl jumping out of the wagon, but I really enjoyed the hayride. One of the most unusual activities they had was the big box full of feed corn. We had to ask why it was there. It was their version of a sandbox. Go figure. We truly enjoyed our morning there and want to encourage everyone to seek out local farms and participate in any events they offer. Support agritourism in your area!
