    Well, not really, but he and what appeared to be an extended family group were dinning in the same Italian restaurant in Ellijay as my wife and I. We had gone from Dalton over to the cabin after work yesterday to see if I could bring my sedan home. We had left it at the cabin when electrical power went off Christmas evening. The road into the cabin was still a packed sheet of ice, so no go on bringing the car home.

    Anyway, future Gov. Deal sure is a short, Napolean looking, smiling little SOB isn't he? Didn't get a chance to speak with him. Started once to follow him into the men's room to mention "Church carry" legislation that possibly will be hitting his desk this upcoming session, but the big ole "Judge" on my hip might have scared him, so I passed on the opportunity.

    He's not really short. You may have been following someone else into the bathroom. :lol:

    Well, I guess Deal is under 6 feet (maybe 5'8?)

    I don't trust the guy, no matter how tall he is. He seems very slimy.

    I'm sure a friendly howdy or hello with or without the Judge would have been more than appropriate.

    So....you frequently follow other men into bathrooms to discuss business with them? :sly:

    You guys need some reading comprehension skills. I said I didn't follow him into the restroom. Since he is GOP that would have been a rather risque move.

    I've been trying to figure out who the guy who kind of resembled "Sonny" was that he stopped at another table to chat with and be introduced and I'm pretty sure it was none other than Ellijay's own Col. Poole. I didn't recgonize him because he wasn't dressed up as a clown last night.

    I can read. I think I laughed at the part where you said you THOUGHT about following him into the bathroom. Its like the night sonny perdue ate at the worst chinese buffet in dawsonville. I stood up, gun on my side and said : ITS SONNY F'ing PERDUE!!!! :D now I said that to my wife, not the entire place. She said it wasn't I said it was. theres a picture of him at the front door because thats probably the only important person that has ever eatten there..

    I've managed to meet four (counting the non-meeting last night) GA governors.

    I met late Governor Maddox and his wife one Friday night in the Varsity downtown. We had been to the airport to pick up my father in law returning from Japan and had our week old daughter with us. They stopped to admire the baby. He passed not too long after that.

    I met "Crazy as Hell" Zell at a sandwich shop in Hayesville, NC on the way home from picking up my motorcycle in Charlotte in 2008. We had stopped there for lunch and was eating outside on the front porch. He and his wife stopped on their way out to admire our two Papillons. I called him "Governor" and he got a great big smile on his face.

    The best though was when my oldest son and I ran into former President Carter out in the middle of nowhere trout fishing. He was all by himself which I thought was odd. We saw him before he saw us and I told my son who was about 12 or 13 at the time to address him as "Mr. President", which he did. Ole' Jimmy sure lit up a big grin when he heard that. Neither of us had a pencil or pen for an autograph.

    I just think it should matter more about how the person governs and less about how they look.

    Obama sure is young, tall, and handsome enough for everyone. :|

    I only met one - Gov. Busbee many years ago. Sang for him at the governor's mansion. Not by myself though, had a lot of back up...high school chorale. :)

    I met Sonny very briefly once at the FFA Gala at the Aquarium....I guess that was 3 years ago or so. They auctioned off a quail or turkey (can't remember which) with him and one w/ Lt. Gov. Cagle and the guys I was working for at the time won the one w/ Sonny. They didn't invite me.....not surprised. Say what you will about him but some politics aside, he seems like someone that would be fun to hang out with....Gov. Deal....for me, not so much.

    I honestly am not sure I would recognize him....that's pretty sad.

    I'd love to meet "Give 'em Hell Zell"....another one that I disagree w/ on a good bit probably but he's a bad ass Marine and you gotta respect that. :righton:
