Guten Tag.51--Headed Down South to the Land of the Pines

Hey everyone, just got back Wednesday night from a week in Cleveland, Tennessee. I stayed at my friends' house before they went back to school at Lee University. It's been a while since I've been down there, so I enjoyed it. Met a lot of their friends from Lee and went to some cool places down there. Drove through Chilhowee Mountain, swam in the Ocoee River, and of course, ate at Chick-fil-A, Zaxby's, and Krystal's. And yes, there was discussion among those of us from the North and those down there from the South concerning the correct term for 'soft drink' (prompting this week's strip). Fun times. 
I might be going back in a couple months with my family since my oldest brother and his family unit will be in Michigan in less than a week! We used to go down to Knoxville every other year when we were younger, so I'm excited. 

Other than that, school is starting in a couple of weeks. Bring it on. I have a couple books due at school.

I think America may be slightly better if we all ate a little more chicken.

Liked it. I like pop, but I also like sweet tea. I thought I could compromise with Californians on that one, but they gawk at me with equal dismay when I mention and/or drink it.

Hah. That's odd. I think it gives off a low culture vibe to some people which is so beyond my understanding. After all, we were raised with it. lol.
