Georgia.  Peacemaker.  What a name . . .! If only we all agreed on what that would have to be . . . .  Happy all-the-holidays in all the languages.  I like this one I learned from frogma:  mele kalikimaka.  Or this one I made up:  mare. eek! charisma’s.

To see the four Savannah posts from almost five years ago, type “savannah” into the search window on left side of the blog page.  It hardly seems possible that a half decade has passed since the last time I was here.

Anyhow . . . on the road and enjoying seeing these Sun, Moran, and Crescent tugs . . . and all the rest.
