We all complain when the weather pundits don’t call their predictions correctly.  Most of the time their predictions are correct.  Like today.  Baby, it’s cold outside and gives promise of being even colder come tomorrow.  Me? I’m staying as much as I can inside my apartment.  Cleo, after getting me up at 5:30 is fast asleep.  A dog’s life is rather regular.  You eat, eliminate, sleep, repeat that cycle three or four times sand hopefully steal in a little walk and belly rub along the way.

COLONIAL GEORGIA INQUIRER


SAGA OF JOHN AND SOPHY

John Wesley, thirty-three and unmarried, fell in love with pretty Sophia Hopkey, niece of Mrs. Thomas Causton.  It seems everyone except Sophy  entertained thoughts of marriage.  John and Sophy enjoyed a week long boat trip from Frederica to Savannah where all that transpired was religious discussion.  You might find that hard to believe.  If you take it as truth I’d like to sell you a condominium in Lybia.  Frederica is 75 miles from Savannah. 
 It took the Georgia settlers two months to come thousands of miles from Gravesend, England to Charles Town, Carolina yet it took a week for John and Sophy to make it from Frederica to Savannah.
There’s a blank in the tapes, or no record available of the frequent breakfast discussions between Sophy and John at his Savannah home.  Wesley also taught Sophy French.
Tune in tomorrow for a SHOCKER in this unfolding story….
