It’s the first city in Georgia, founded in 1733. And it’s full of history.
Forsyth Park. Fort Jackson. Fort Pulaski. River Street. The Squares. Tybee Light. Johnny Mercer House.
Don’t know how much you know about Savannah. I grew up near there. Well, within TV-watching distance. My high school was in the same region as the Savannah schools, so there’d be travel to games throughout the year. Savannah was close, so I’m a little familiar with it.
But, no matter how much you know about Savannah, there is one aspect that you surely know about, even if you don’t know about its connection with Savannah.
The Girl Scouts were founded in Savannah in 1912.
Whatever you think of the Girl Scouts, you gotta admit: they make good cookies. I always look forward to the sale of Girl Scout Cookies. I stock up. You can freeze them, you know. They’ll keep. And you can enjoy them year-round. At least, I think you can enjoy them year-round. They don’t usually last that long around me.
Anyway, you can buy Girl Scout Cookies now. They’re selling them.
Only, you can’t buy them at the home of Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the Girl Scouts.
Nope. The address 10 East Oglethorpe Avenue is off-limits to the sale of Girl Scout Cookies.
Seems somebody complained last year.
So, the Girl Scouts cannot sell cookies in front of the home of the founder of the Girl Scouts.
I tell you, this country’s going to hell in a handbasket when Girl Scouts can’t sell cookies in at the home of the founder of the Girl Scouts.
I wonder who complained. Whoever it was complained hates America. I mean, really. Stopping little girls from selling cookies? Sounds like something somebody who voted for Barack Obama would do, that’s how un-American it is.
I’m thinking about heading to Savannah and offering to buy a busload of Girl Scout Cookies in front of the Juliette Gordon Low House. And, if anyone complained, they could bite be. While I’m biting into some Girl Scout Cookies.
