Back to dancing on the corner

Happy New Year Everybody!

It is a fact that the people of Newnan, Georgia, practice the Christmas spirit every day, all year long. I know this from first hand experience. Not a day goes by in which someone will offer me a ride to wherever I am going.

I cannot remember the number of times someone quietly paid for my breakfast at the nicest little cafe in town and this was way before December.

In spite of what you may have read, I came to this friendly little town January 15, 2013, so I shall soon celebrate one full year of living in Newnan. It has been the best year of my life, all sixty-four years of it. I have been so happy here that I now dance everywhere I go! I would do back flips if I were not so old.

I look forward toward going into downtown Newnan most every day. I keep meeting some of the nicest people everywhere I go. Young people, old people, no matter, I am accepted and treated with respect by all I have met. I have some great conversations with people all up and down the social ladder. I am very proud to be a part of this wonderful town!

Come January 15, 2014, I shall be dancing on the corner, feel free to honk or wave as you go by. Better yet stop and take a picture with me, I would love that!

Newnan, GA
