Georgia Blogger.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 9:39 pm

I was making my regular visit over at Cadillac Tight, and I noticed that he has me listed on his Blogroll in the “Georgia Blogs” category as an Honorary Georgia Blogger.

I’ve won an award or two in my life, but being named an Honorary Georgia Blogger is a distinct honor and privilege, particularly seeing as how I am a 100% born and bred Garden Stater.

I was admitted to this exclusive group approximately one year ago in Helen, Georgia, and I re-united with my fellow Georgia Bloggers in April on Jekyll Island. I have spoken with some of them on the phone on more than a few occasions. One of them even hooked me up with a most excellent guitar. I’ve supped with this guy in Jersey, partied with this guy in New York City and prowled the Jersey Shore with this guy.

How did I gain admittance into this distinguished group of writers and ass-kicking partiers? Hell, to them, I talk funny. I don’t drive a pick-up, and I don’t particularly care for grits. Surely it’s not my writing, and lots of people can play a guitar – no big deal there. I have great farookin’ hair, but I don’t think that did it for me either.

Heaven help me, I do believe that it was my affinity for the crystal-clear “homemade Georgia wine” that did it. I fear that some genetic accident, which probably first occured a couple generations ago in Ireland, resulted in the Dixie Elixir going down like well water, albeit with a knockout punch that would match Mike Tyson’s.

Many of my fellow Georgia Bloggers will be convening again this weekend in Helen, Georgia, but because of a prior commitment, I will be unable to attend. Instead, I will be on a road trip with some of the Usual Suspects to Cape May, New Jersey (the Cape Escape), a lovely place, but, alas, a place where crystal-clear “homemade Georgia wine” is nowhere to be found.

I will, however, be with my Georgia Blogger Brothers and Sisters in spirit.

Y’all have a great time.


  1. You will be missed by all. But Have fun in NJ on the shore.

  2. I your love of homemade booze gets you an honorary membership to the Georgia Bloggers, you’re probably a member of at least 39 other states’ Blogger groups as well. You’d better check.

  4. I’m told it had something to do with purty toenails but whatever.

    Sorry that you can’t make it this time, Jim. You were the very first blogger I met in Helen last year. In fact, you were the very first blogger I *ever* met.

    Have a great weekend!

  5. Hey, at least you’ll be south of the Mason-Dixon line. Whistle “Dixie” as you walk around looking at the Victorian homes and it will be just like Charleston, SC.

  6. Well, you would be south of the M-D if they didn’t jog around Delaware. The border between PA and MD, extended to the Atlantic, would cut off the southern end of NJ.

  7. Yes buddy Jimbo, you are one of us now. You smoke, play guitar, drink like a fish and don’t even ask, what is it? You got drunk on moonshine and we painted your toes red, so what, I drove Rob home with red finger nails and toenails, glad we were not stopped by the police. That is why, you are one of us. Take care and be careful, Cat. PS, I just purchased two more guitars from willy, a washburn and a Leland, cheap but sounds good and it is Red.

  8. Sorry you won’t be joining us in Helen.

    Of course, I’m wondering just what the hell it is I’m getting us into…as a New York-born Blogmeet Virgin, who knows what awaits at the Degeneracy in the Confederacy?
