* good gasAnd while I was finishing this list, my girlfriend called to say her car repair was finished. For HER, I was willing to ask a co-worker for a ride, to pick up the car. So, I guess that I'm thankful for having a co-worker kind enough to drive me half a mile down the road (cuz she didn't HAVE to do that) and for the fact that, so far, my g.f.'s car is performing well.
I'd never have guessed that a big ole SUV would or could get 26+ miles per gallon, even on the highway, without the air conditioner running. My wallet thanked me for that one.
You probably thought this one was about Taco Bell.
* good grass
No, not THAT kinda grass.
Georgia leaves in Autumn. Although they didn't show up on my camera pix too well, the trees on either side of I-75 were vibrant with explosive displays of orange, yellows, and reds.
* good meals
I've blogged before about Mary Mac's Tea Room, a restaurant off Ponce de Leon in Atlanta. The breads and service weren't as good, this time, but the entrees were outstanding (though cold). And yes, the meal was free, as a result.
* good deals
Contrary to what some might presume, I only care about name-brands when they translate to quality merchandise. Discover Mills, outside of Atlanta, has a Saks Fifth Avenue with the best selection of men's shoes that I've ever seen and the prices are (relatively) low. I got a pair for myself and a pair for my step-father.
I guess I'm getting an early start on Thanksgiving.
