Dearfolk,
   I've been a few new places since I last wrote in. My favorite is Harry's Pig Shop at 2425 Jefferson Road (Homewood Village Shopping Center) here in Athens. Right now, the special running is this AMAZING ham-and-bean soup that isn't too salty. Yum!
   The general bill of fare is barbecue. You can choose from pork, hen, brisket, or tofu. The place also does ribs well, and has a rib special on Tuesdays. The pork is so well done that it doesn't require any sauce, although there are six to choose from (all homemade). They make their own salad dressings, too. And they have good vegetables (which occasionally vary) and barbecue hash.
   I'll be back as soon as I have time to post about some places in the Atlanta area that I've uncovered. BTW, I'm doing okay down here in 30601-land.
      Wholeheartedly, Ort.

As many a traveler will tell you, it's good to go and always good to come home.

It's always a pleasure to read what Ort. has to write, and while Harry's is by no means my favorite around Athens, it is certainly good.

Dearfolk,
   Harry's has greatly improved since I've taken to going there. Today I ate a pork plate that needed no sauce. The potato salad is excellent, too. BTW, I stand behind what I said about the specials... they're nearly always too good to be true. And it's all right down the road from my house.
      Wholeheartedly, Ort. Carlton in Amazing Athens.
P. S. My health continues to be pretty doggone good. Now I must return to lurk mode.

Dearfolk,
   Still eating at Harry's on Jefferson Road. Today I had fried wontons with mustard vinaigrette dressing instead of the usual sweet Thai-style sauce. They have an occasional special of hash brown potato bake that is out-of-this-world good.
   Their barbecued pork is good enough by itself that even sauces as well-crafted as theirs (all six homemade) can be an afterthought. And Harry's Hash is hard to beat.
   I'll keep y'all posted as I have time.
      Wholeheartedly, Ort. Carlton in Everpresent Athens.

Ort is like the cicadas, back every seventeen years or so, makes some noise, then is gone again
 
Ok, Ok, he's not like that at all, and stop throwing things at me :-)
