My travels before Stillwater brought me to Athens, GA. My buddy Eddie Beck lives there. Eddie has been a brother to me since I met him all those years ago while I was a rabble rouser in Science High School. For years I have been telling him I was going to visit him and finally I did. I had the money and the freedom since leaving my job to do as I pleased and I was going to make the most of it. Eddie lives in Athens, Georgia the same home as my cousins which coincidentally I forgot. I met up with family for a bit said my hellos and such and kept on trucking. I even rented a car to go visit my friend Jon Mckenna who is stationed at a base four hours away from Athens. The best part or night of the trip had to be celebrating Eddies birthday at Opera Nightclub. We did it big. We got a suite at the Marriott a block away and went in that night. Eddie has some cute friends. Even his sister went and if you knew Carrie you know it was kind of a big deal. Shes amazingly brilliant and equally as quirky. I love her to bits. It was just an amazing time overall. We had so much fun and just great to say the least. I have to tell one story about a random bar night that Eddie and I had though, So I am sure some people know my run ins with the law when it comes to public urination. My suggestion is don't try it, even when you don't think you are going to get caught you probably will. So, we are leaving a bar and I have to go the bathroom really bad and I ask Eddie so how are they on public urination down here. Eddie shrugs and is like, "I don't know." I see a big ass bush so I decide ehhh I should be good. After I finish doing my business and come around from the bush who is waiting for me but a bike cop. The cop goes, "So, what were you doing behind that bush?" I respond back with, "Do you really want to know officer?" He said, "Yes!" Immediately I go into story mode. I tell him that I have a crush on a girl and I wanted to have a private conversation with her because I am drunk and I want to tell her that I like her and then I point to Eddie who is observing this a couple of feet away and say, "You see that guy over is a gossip and I didn't want him listening into my conversation." The cop looks at me and goes, "Its too early for this weird shit. Have a good night!" My life is pretty random sometimes. I recently said I embrace chaos while the rest of you flirt with chance. Good words to live by sometimes that is lol. That was a highlight but I am glad I know some very special people in this world and Eddie Beck is certainly one of them. Now come the pics!
In this picture I was dancing and some random lady came up behind me and started to dance with me and I was yelling at her to smack my ass and then told her she wasn't doing it hard enough....at this point I was having some fun haha.
They kept telling me to keep my eyes open and this is a horrible attempt at me trying to keep my eyes open. Then that is Carrie and me. I am pretty sure shes just excited herself by having her arm around as by her facial expression.
The whole gang from the Opera Night minus Eddie
