Coffee & doughnuts, yum, yum.
Kay started off our Sunday morning with Gospel Service complete with communion. The only way to start off your day!
We boarded our bus for the Keller Flea Market! WOOOHOOOO. We were all challenged to find a treasure. The “Rivoli Rally Challenge” find something to sell at the auction and the person who makes the most profit on their “treasure” wins a prize. Everyone was on a quest to beat Kay at this chore. It wasn’t hard to find a treasure as the flea market - tables kept going, and going, and going, and going.
Those who were quick shoppers, found time to make it back to the front of the market to get a photo op with the largest cow ever.
Lunch at Betty Bombers, home of the American Legion Building and the birthplace of the Eighth Air Force. This building was a National Guard Armory at the time the Eighth Air Force was activated in 1942. You can’t get more “All American” than that. It was very touching to see a personal place setting for Prisoners of War/Missing in Action.
The chefs prepare the kind of food that they like to eat, day in and day out. Their mission is to combine fresh ingredients with their craftsmanship to create delectable, wholesome foods for Savannahians. The servers were something else!
Arriving at Chippewa Square too early for the Theatre, we decided to explore. Linda and Kay found where Forest Gump sat on his bench eating his chocolate covered cherries
as well as the famous phone booth and restaurant found in the 1995 “Something To Talk About” with Julia Roberts and Dennis Quaid.
So WHAT are Kay and Linda talking about??? You’ll just have to come to one of our rallies to find out!
“Savannah Live” at the historic Savannah Theatre was a delight. The Savannah Theatre first opened in 1818. Located in the heart of downtown Savannah on Chippewa Square. It is one of the United States' oldest continually-operating theatres. Ernie sat down next to Bill and GREW right before our eyes! IT WAS DOUG STEGALL’S FAULT!
We saw Savannah Live, a high-energy 2 hour variety show that features everything from “Pop” to “Broadway” and “Motown" to “Rock & Roll!” All we can say is WOW! Our guests enjoyed the entire show, singing right along with the entertainers.
We had much audience participation, including Don being invited up on stage with the pretty ladies. What a hoot! Who knew he had such rhythm!
After the show, Don STILL thought he was the ladies’ man.
NOOOO, DON, that’s the wrong bus!
Finishing our night at Loves Seafood Restaurant. Yesssss Sirrrrrrr Yeeeeee! MORE FOOD! We had waterfront dining, located on the banks of the Ogeechee River. In October 1993 Love’s Seafood was selected by Paramount Pictures for one of the many filming locations of the academy award winning movie “Forrest Gump” starring Tom Hanks. Love that movie! Loves was picked as one of Coastal Living Magazine’s Top 25 Seafood Dives in the Coastal United States.
What a treat!
