No, it was not community service. I actually wanted to go there -- a decision made after watching an HGTV House Hunters episode - you know, the way I make all of my travel destination choices.
And after driving 1500 miles over 5 days (we stopped in Charlotte to visit relatives along the way), I have to say -- I love the 'Nooga!
Which is kinda weird. Because I hate nougat. And noogies.
What a great city. And not only because I happened upon a marriage-proposal-in-process while I was walking across a pedestrian bridge (awwww):
|Right after proposal was accepted, I screamed,|
"You know 50% of marriages end in divorce, right?"
|Well put me in cuffs and send me to your Art Deco hoosegow.|
|Look how drunk Avery is.|
Besides, my next house is there:
|Right in the center of town and ridiculously cheap.|
Perhaps because there are no doors.
