Tator Tots By The Dashboard Light

Ok, well, in the light, on the dashboard, but as were driving home and The Man lined them up to "warm them up" on the scorching  100 degree day, Meatloaf's song for some reason came to mind.  I do love tator tots, and they were on the dashboard... so paradise.


I started off today early with a trip to Sam's and Publix. On my list to make today was Beef Burgundy, and so I needed some Burgundy wine. I grabbed the bottle at Sam's, along with the rest of my list, and headed to check out and make my way to the next stop.

As the cashier rang up my items, the register sounded and would not let her continue.  I don't know if this is a National law, a Sam's rule, a Georgia law, a Dougherty County law, but I could not buy the wine - it was before 8:00 in the morning. 7:33 a.m. to be exact. No alcohol can be sold before 8 a.m.

Luckily by the time I finished at Publix, it was 8:05 and I could make the purchase there.  I don't have a bone to pick in the "fight," I am just curious what the idea is behind the rule. I can't actually wrap my brain around that one. I wonder why not before 8, but you can buy it the rest of the day?

I did check out the list of dumb laws, and in Athens Georgia, if you want to read your favorite book in public to your friends, you have to do it before 2:45 a.m. Another one of those time things...

Of course I can't figure out for the life of me, this one either: In Georgia, it is illegal to carry an ice cream cone in your back pocket on Sunday.

Things that make you go hmmm......

Those laws really do make you wonder why in the world they came up with them! I wonder if ice cream cones in front pockets on Sunday is okay!
