(I made a list for this theme of places I would either like to visit or revisit sometime. There are places I will likely get to see or we have a trip planned or at least desired for the future. Some are a stretch and some are not and of course I realize that the Bible says, “For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.”(James 4:15 KJV). I haven’t ever done a Blogging A – Z challenge with a theme before but hopefully, this list will be at least mildly interesting in some cases if not downright entertaining in others.)

Here’s the haps:
Atlanta is a city in the US state of Georgia and is a place I will likely (if the Lord wills and I live so long) get to at some point in life. I want to go there for a couple of reasons. One is that my wife has done a lot of research on Ancestry and after doing the DNA thing and discovering I do not have any biological connection with my dad she has learned that I most likely have roots in this area. I am interested in this but, as I have written about it before, I know who my dad was. But her research has also found that there may be health issues on that side that I should know about.
I have only ever been inside the airport here which doesn’t count. The big thing that I really want to see and have wanted to see for a very long time is the World of Coca-Cola museum. I have loved this soft drink all my life and if the word “fan” ever applied to me about anything, it would be this. I even stuck with them through the New Coke fiasco. The New Coke was nasty and tasted icky like Pepsi and many fans hoarded hundreds of cases of the Real Thing fearing the old taste would be lost forever. I couldn’t afford to do that but thankfully New Coke only lasted 79 days because the outcry was so great from consumers.
One of the cool things I found out about Atlanta is that you can buy a CityPass and visit the top 5 attractions and it’s good for a period of 9 days. Attractions include: Georgia Aquarium, World of Coca-Cola museum, Zoo Atlanta, Fernbank Museum of Natural History, College Football Hall of Fame, and the National Center for Civil and Human Rights.
Likelihood of this happening within the next year: 100%
Likelihood of running into someone I know or met on the Internet: ?%
Remember, the Good Book says:
Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.(James 4:13-15 KJV)
