Umbrella? Check! Black paten leather tap shoes? Check! Rain from heaven? Check! Wet sidewalk in downtown Madison? Check! Well Ding Dang y’all! Get your tap shoes on and let’s channel some Gene Kelly immediately! Hit it: “Do dee do do do de do dee do do de (repeat) I’m singin’ in the rain, just singin’ in the rain. What a glorious feelin’, I’m (tap tap) happy again! I’m laughin’ at clouds, so dark up above . . . the sun’s in my heart and I’m ready for love.” Momma! Bust a tap move! (tappy taptap tappy tap tap tappy slide tap.) Shoot fire! Momma, you’re a ding dang super star if there ever was one!
Ring ring! Ring Ring! Hold on y’all! I gotta get this call! Got it! Ok so that was Madisonian Vickie Hunt, owner of Barkin’ Dogs Shoe Co. and volunteer extraordinaire for the Morgan County Boys and Girls Club! Right so she wants us all to start thinkin’ ‘bout the upcomin’ Dancing With The Stars event comin’ up in November 2017! This is a huge fundraiser for the Madison-Morgan Boys and Girls Club (www.mmbgc.com) so y’all need to sign up to participate in this fabulous dancing event! Now, if you want to sign up to dance, call Vickie at 678-232-0318! Do it!
There’s a lot of Biz Buzz poppin’ round so y’all get ready! First up: The Sovereign Vapor located on Hancock Street across from the Morgan County Court House is flat closed. Where in the Sam Hill is Momma gonna get her vape fix now? Ding dang it!
Right so Pet Wants, which is next door to the now closed vape shop across from the back of the Morgan County Post Office, is going to be moving soon! Pet Wants will be at its current location on Hancock Street until the end of the month, but owner Sue Scherer says they will be movin’ the shop the first week of July onto Eatonton Road in Madison across from the Ingles! Keep watchin’ the Biz Buzz for more intel on this move! In the meantime, go get your pet a treat! Ruff Ruff!
Did y’all hear that Chick-fil-A is gonna start sellin’ a gluten-free bun? Well ding dang! Ok so they are rollin’ this out nationally and it will soon be at the Chick-fil-A in Madison! Check it out y’all!
Now y’all triple swear you didn’t hear this from me! Ok. So while I was just mindin’ my business poppin’ along downtown, a little bird told me that a new restaurant is comin’ soon to downtown Madison! That’s right y’all! It’s gonna open up in the former Clover House space! Mum – I say Mum – is the word! More on this later!
Ok so I popped into Madison Produce the other day and owner Andy Oller has some really cute tea towels for sale! So, my fave has an outline of the great State of Georgia with copy that says: “Here in the South we don’t hide crazy, we parade it on the front porch and give it a cocktail!” Love it! Y’all go get one today!
Yikes! I flat near forgot! Y’all watch out for ole wicked Almira Gulch aka The Wicked Witch! She’s in town y’all! I saw her myself just as clear as day! You’ll know her if you see her. She’s always mad . . . like a hornet flew up and stung the inside of her nose! And speakin’ of her nose, honey it’s so stuck up high in the air, she’d drown in a rainstorm! She might need to stuff a small town rag up there to plug it up!
Well that’s it for the buzz on biz! Y’all stay dry and be safe! Hug your momma. Be a good friend! And, if you feel like it, come on out in the rain with Momma and me and put a smile on your face! Hit it Gene Kelly: “I’ll walk down the lane, with a happy refrain . . . just singin’ and dancin’ in the rain.”
