Trip Highlights, The Finale

We made it to Gettysburg, despite Sybil, and did the Auto Tour.

Robert E. Lee

The SC Memorial

The PA Memorial

The Kentucky Memorial

Mean Gene was there.

Notice the advertised "Period Fare," because back in the days of the Civil War they ate



Garden Stuff like Chickens

Historic Downtown Gettysburg was disappointing.  All of the restaurants had the same menus, and it's one tchotchke shop after another with plenty of Ghost Tour places thrown in.  I'd recommend skipping it.   The town, not the auto tour.

And that was it in a nutshell.

In GrowDammit News...

I ended up with a new iPhone 3GS.  Let's hope it's less of a piece of shit than the last one.  I don't know what I did to piss off Steve Jobs, but that thing never acted right.

A new poll is up in the Herb Smackdown.

None of our blog fans like birthday cake.

The Dragon is napping.

Next...Who knows.  Stay tuned because I'm sure we can come up with something.


  1. I'm just posting something up here just to post something.... I WILL say that the best part of that trip to historic Gettysburg was when we were doggin' OUT the menus around town while the tourists were standing there trying to figure out what it was that they wanted to eat..."Period Food." And every place that we ended up... Had the same shit... I'm from the good 'ol South and I think that the only "Sub" that they knew about was the Hunley. They should have had your choice of subs.... One for the Rebels and one for the Yankees.... Something along the lines of... The Merrimack and the Monitor. No such luck..... Pizza... Chicken... Taco Salad... Shit like that. Oh! There was Abe Lincoln shit E-V-E-R-Y-W-H-E-R-E....

    We did get to see the Masonic Lodge.... So it wasn't a total loss.

  2. I like birthday cake, but I prefer Boston cream pie for my birthday. Technically, that's still cake, though. Pie is good, too. Mmmmmmm...pie...

    I hate dill. Hate it.

    I'm going to go back to thinking about cake and pie. Mmmmmmmm....

  3. I never realized that Colonel Sanders played such a significant role at Gettysburg but his memorial was fuckin' PACKED! Here's what cracked me up... All of the Southern monuments were all modest (At best) but then you'd see the Northern monuments? These things looked like the fuckin' Taj Mahal! (Note the pictures.) The battlefields were pretty creepy... It was like.... I dunno... Just creepy. The shit kinda gave me the willies.

    So we went to the Apple store... (That place gives me the willies too.) Every time we go there it's a fucking ZOO. Farmer Chele goes through the motions and finally gets her new phone and the sales chick is all acting like it should be the happiest day of our lives and shit. As we were leaving... Michele blabs out "And this fucker better work!" (Kinda under her breath but loud enough for everyone to hear.) I thought it was pretty funny. She cracks me up.

    So we get the Jag back from the Jag Doctor later this afternoon. I'm excited! I LOVE LOVE LOVE driving that car! It's going to need some more work done to it but with an older car... You hafta move in baby steps otherwise... Your pocketbook will take a fuckin' beating. Oh well. That's the price ya gotta pay, I suppose.
