Trip to Atlanta, Georgia

Sister Bean driving in the Atlanta area
We drove to Atlanta Georgia on Wednesday morning to spend time with the Allgiaers before we were scheduled to attend the Mission President's Conference.  Atlanta is having a beautiful fall--something we just don't see in Orlando--but whose complaining we have balmy air and palm trees. We met the Allgaiers for dinner. It was so wonderful to see them and talk about our experiences as Area Medical Advisers. They travel more than we do and we are more involved in the senior district that they are. They never go to the mission office and we go to the office every day. After dinner we went to the Atlanta Temple.

On Thursday morning we drove to Peach Tree City (South Atlanta) to the Allgiaers apartment. It is located in a beautiful wooded area 10 minutes from the Atlanta Mission Home and Mission Office and has beautiful mansions among forested gentle rolling hills. Their three bedroom apartment matches ours in size and comfort. We both find ourselves in simple but nice circumstances as we serve the Lord. Allgiaers took us to visit  Senoia. Sundry movies have been filmed here including "Fried Green Tomatoes" and "Driving Miss Daisy" It is presently the filming location for the popular television series "Walking Dead". We browsed in the Woodbury Shoppe--certified retailers of all things"Walking Dead". We also browsed other shoppes and antique stores. The Elders were more adventurous and walked near the "Walking Dead" filming set and talked to the security guard there even though there were NO ENTRANCE signs. We ate lunch at the Redneck Gourmet and had fried green tomatoes on a redneck burger--yum!

There are over 20 movies filmed in Senoia
