Fall is upon us, and the cooler temperatures finally are here! This is a great time of year to hike and explore some of the nearby islands, such as Wassaw and Daufuskie. Speaking of islands in Georgia, Ossabaw is a beautiful island south of Wassaw. My wife and I attended the annual Pig Roast and Art Auction on October 20 (see photo at right). Ossabaw is one of the largest barrier islands off the coast of Georgia. The island contains 9,000 acres of wooded uplands and 16,000 acres of marshlands and has a storied history.
Halloween is just about here, and ghosts and goblins are beginning to appear all over the island. Thanksgiving will be here before we know it, and we have so much to be thankful for on Skidaway Island. The physical beauty of our surroundings continues to amaze, but above all, the warm, generous, caring people who fill our neighborhoods are the greatest blessing of all. Next time you see your neighbor, let them know how much you appreciate all they do for the community!
Thank you in advance to Santa’s Elves – The Landings’ residents! Thanks to your outstanding generosity each year, there are some very special children in Savannah who do not have to wish upon a star to make their Christmas dreams come true. The Landings Company is designating the military families at Hunter Army Airfield, Fort Stewart Air National Guard Base, and the Savannah Chatham Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program to be the recipients of 2018’s Adopt-an-Angel Program.
Texting. It’s the most popular way to communicate. It’s easy, and we don’t have to stop whatever we are doing to communicate a simple message to someone.
Driving a car is a huge responsibility, and if you are lucky, you can drive all day and still manage to make it home safely. Now that the laws in Georgia have changed, I honestly think people are using hands-free in their cars more often and trying to be more cautious. Yay!
