More pictures from Georgia

I’ve managed to get all the pictures mixed up, but the two I wanted to mention here were the double barrelled cannon – a particularly unpleasant-sounding inventor devised it to maim as many people as possible in a single shot. However, when tried out, there was unintended chaos. https://www.accgov.com/86/Double-Barreled-Cannon

A more charming story is of the tree that owns itself. Its owner loved it so much that he left it its own plot of land in his will. https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/tree-owns-itself

Both in Athens, Georgia, where we went to meet my blog friend Hey Bartender, though she’s a wine merchant now. She is brilliant fun and her husband, who owns a wonderful deli, is too. I’d love to go back and hit the music scene with them. She shaped much of my musical taste, some 10 or 12 years ago.

    Dharmabum, I hope all is well with you. I want to come back to India – of course, it hasn’t been possible at all for the last two years. My sister wants to visit her friend in Chennai and hopes to do so this autumn. Whether I might be able to come depends on things here. First, i have to have completed all the work related to the sale of Tim’s house and his estate. Then I have to have someone to stay and look after the house and animals. So I just don’t know at present, but I’ll certainly tell you when it’s going to happen. Where do you live now?

    I was very relaxed, it was wonderful, Scarlet.

      I shuttle between Madras (now called Chennai) where my workplace is & Pondicherry, where my parents live. If you do manage to negotiate all that & visit, please let me know 🙂

    Chain shots (“Kettenkugeln”) were used in the 30 years war, but they came out of cannons with one barrel, a nasty weapon.
    But let’s look at nicer things : I like the idea that the tree belongs to itself, and that the community respects the wishes of its former owner. I never before had heard of these cabbage babies, the place has a quality of it’s own.
    Glad to see that you enjoyed the journey !
