Congrats on your new life, new job, new city and state. And new freedom!
Good for you! Welcome to the South!
I really like Georgia but you would have to pay me a hundred thousand a week for me to live in Atlanta. I hope you are really away from the city hopefully in one of the towns created to escape that city’s predations.
watch out for some of the suburbs, they are in process for getting worse, some spillage over from atlanta proper.
well Yankee[smiles], at least you woke up and are doing what my wife did and get the hell out of the north east.
Least your money will not now go to the liberal socialist agendas , at least marriage is saved for how it has been for a thousand years and now you will feel freedom and trust me YOU WILL NOTICE.
Fires in the backyard, no emissions, eat what you want, get more house for your money, etc
So long as you don’t moan about grits, accents, confederate flags and how slow it is then you’ll be fine and love it down here.
BTW what part are you going to , is it near Rome which is beautiful?
You picked a very good time to leave NY.
Congratulations on the new job and an attitude that I am sure will be appreciated in GA.
May you find happiness in your new home.
Be careful what you wish for........
Well, I grew up in NYC and I love it...or I would love it if it were not for tax and control freaks like Bloomberg, who are unfortunately all too welcome among the ruling elite. I’d be back there tomorrow if they weren’t going to tax me to death and issue dire penalties for my softdrink choices. And I never even drink soda - I hate it, but I hate even more being told that I can’t drink it! As for taxes, I don’t even earn a lot of money, but they’d take it all.
I live in Florida now: no state income tax.
Atlanta is going to be a little different. It has its own ruling elite, like anyplace, and you’ll have to readjust to it. Don’t expect paradise.
“I solemnly swear that we will not mess up your state.”
Welcome to southern hospitality—good people down here; you’ll appreciate it.
But, be advised—we Southerners expect people to keep their promises.
Welcome from Suwanee
Dont ask what MARTA stands for.
So a Damn Yankee is moving to the South. Always keep in mind because you are from North of the Mason-Dixon Line and East of Ohio, you will always be known as a Damn Yankee. The rest of the North during the “War Between the States” is just Yankee. Congratulations on the job and the move To Dixie. I miss living in Mississippi (I just do not miss the pollen though). I envy you I am stuck up here in the UP of Michigan, where on Friday and Saturday several inches of snow is predicted.
>>Finally, after years of dreaming, we’ve finally moving from New Yorkistan to America (the outskirts of Atlanta, to be exactly)!
Congratulations on escaping NY, but in the real South we consider Atlanta and its suburbs to be the “NYC of the South”. :-)
As soon as you get your new drivers license go down to the local probate judge’s office and pay them a few dollars (it used to be $12) and get you concealed carry license.
They have to give it to you.
Congratulations on moving to the South, but Atlanta is no longer the great city as in the past. Arlanta is high majority black, but the total population of the city is barely over 500,000.
My parents grew up in Atlanta, but that was many years ago.
I assume that you will live in one of the suburban cities
that surround Atlanta.
Good luck and best wishes on your move.
The Atlanta area is like our Cary here in NC. It’s where we colonize the Yankees to keep them away from the real South.
