The Cool Dude from Team GSI, by Beverly Hicks Burch

My Tall & Handsome…the cool dude of Team GSI.. This was taken after the Race for the Cure in Savannah.

What have they held out and shut in, created safe harbor for, or what kind of secrets have they kept secret? This door was… Continue reading Doorway to the Past, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Stars and Bars, by Beverly Hicks Burch

r Last Saturday after the Race for the Cure, Tall & Handsome and I spent some time taking in some local color. By happenstance we discovered Fort Pulaski. The fort had been built in 1847 and held by the Union, but once South Carolina seceded from the Union in 1860 Georgia followed and then Georgia… Continue reading Stars and Bars, by Beverly Hicks Burch
