August 14, 2019 9:25 AM Log in to Reply Mr. Bear Speaking of obscure, do you remember the location of a restaurant downtown called the “Crosskeys”. There’s a photo of it in the Georgia State Library archives, but no notation of its location other than it appears to be near a big Gulf Oil lighted sign.

Apparently there was some kind of trail crossing there called Cross Keys. Full disclosure: I went to Cross Keys High School. Nobody ever talked about what Cross Keys was. Google is not much help, except for an 1862 Battle of Cross Keys in Virginia.

But it’s the same location. I’m thinking that it is on Peachtree, north from Baker Street, but the side street doesn’t fit in. Both Peachtree and W. Peachtree had trolley bus wires…… Where is Franklin Garrett when we need him?

Thanks, though. August 14, 2019 11:09 PM Ellynn Bucky is #5, and Madison is #1. Interpret that how you like… (Narrator… Cus Cheeseheads are the best tailgaters in the world.)

Or will Republicans not take the bait scared swing districts will go Democrat if they try to “fix” it?

We should easily be reaping big Rewards & Gains, but the Fed is holding us back. We will Win!” See, none of this is his fault. None of anything bad is ever his fault. MAGA!
