Unfortunately, when he is home the boys get excited, particularly Kuya. So it should come as no surprise that Kuya was up very, very late, and kept Grump and Sweetie awake too. Grr!! Once Grump and Sweetie did fall asleep, they were already facing a too quick to arrive 5:00 am alarm.
So what did Dodong do to help this situation? Why, wake up screaming at 4:00 am of course! Double GRRR!!!
Grump did manage to wander about, (in a sleep-deprived haze, no doubt), and take some more pics of Columbus and environs.
During his lunch break he walked across the pedestrian bridge to Alabama, and meandered about Phenix City for a bit. A friend of his who currently lives in Reynolds GA used to own this restaurant:
|Tim's Old Restaurant. (Different Owners Now)|
Ain't much in this part of Phenix City!
Does anyone know what this grass with the pink seed heads is called? In mass plantings it is very, very pretty, and I would assume that, being a grass, it is fairly easy to grow.
After work Grump and a co-worker went to dinner in the rebuilt old commercial section of Columbus. Lots of restaurants and bars are along this street. It looks like a cool place to hang out.
As usual, Grump was more interested in plants than anything else!
A quick peek down an alleyway.
The weather in Columbus this month has been superb, making up (almost) for the unbearable heat of the summer months. If I were to plan a trip to Columbus, I would get here in the spring or autumn, and leave the scorching months to the locals!
