Hapeville is not on the way but it's close by. You should visit. Maybe I can tease you down with a few pictures.
Hapeville is inside the perimeter. It has a compact and picturesque downtown. Its main street (Central Avenue) is just two lanes and somehow embraces the railroad. It has life long residents who love it.
I have family connections. JoAnn's uncle, great uncle, and cousins lived in Hapeville working at
Ford and Delta. She lived with Earl and Mae for a summer. I courted her down there. I always liked it and her.
I'm not saying it was the best home wedding ever. But I'm not saying it wasn't.
This is my salute to the Wedding Bosses. Our friends and guests pitched in mightily. They didn't just attend the wedding, they made it special. And they did it in the rain.
Don't miss "Cake Bosses," the little video at the very end.
Jesse was Chief Umbrella Boss for the march down the aisle.
There was a lot of work to do.
It's photogenic but a bit run down in the paint and landscape department. The Boss of All Wedding Bosses insisted we do some serious spiffing.
Spencer is Scaffold Boss. We named our lawnmower, "The Spencer," in his honor.
David is Paint Boss, Glazing Boss, and Look After His Dad Boss.
Todd and Emily are Yard Bosses. They recruited a team to rescue our exhausted front yard. It was like a barn raising. They joked and sang amusing songs. Now we have Emily's Garden and Todd's Garden. We are in the process of naming our trees after them: The Ben, The Mary Lou, The Wil.
They are all Bush Bosses. You may know that a cubic foot of soil weighs about 100 pounds. The bosses moved tons of our beloved clay.
True Deliverance Church 1433 Watson Street, Atlanta in the Edgewood neighborhood. 1950 per Dekalb County property tax records.
It's one of 4 churches within a few blocks. This one is right on the street, pointed sideways, clinging to a hillside. Quite a sight in the winter from the valley to the east, a tributary Sugar Creek. I'm not sure if it will still be here when the leaves fall.
