We had the pleasure of using Avalon Limousine Service of Monroe on Saturday of this past weekend. The driver was a lady with a big smile and pleasant disposition. The extended Ford Excursion was spotless on the inside and outside and looked new.
Okay, maybe the same thing could be said for others in the limo business. What set Avalon apart was the owner, Chris Calhoun. My oldest son left his Epipen injector for severe allergic reactions in the limo once he was dropped off for his formal in Duluth. We were able to get Chris on the phone and set up a time to pick up the Epipen which Chris had secured from the limo. Chris was able to meet me in Monroe a few minutes after midnight for the dropoff. He was still working for other clients and had a run to make to Hartsfield-Jackson. Chris was gracious and friendly in helping us get the medicine back in case we needed it that night. He was patient, never seemed perturbed, and was willing to accomodate my schedule.
I would recommend his service to anyone that needs limousine transportation. I’d never met him before Saturday night and am glad that I did.

My cousin, Clint Conley, is a private baseball instructor based in Gwinnett County, Georgia. He has created and patented a device to hold baseballs for batting practice and easy transport. It is perfect for soft toss – no more sitting on the ball bucket and reaching in it for the balls. Sit on the top and reach under for the baseballs. Another reason you might like one is that it also acts as a ball retriever. Kinda like a tennis ball retriever except for baseballs.
Clint has had to get 20 or so patents on this creation. Here’s a link to his website with all of his contact information, photos, and even a video demonstration. Very cool and saves your back.
Recently, I met a good friend at The Hail Mary Sports Pub in Grayson. I ordered the grouper salad and sweet tea. The food was delicious, the tea was just right (sweet but not overdone), and the atmosphere was like you’d want for a business appointment. Our servers were friendly and attentive, the TVs were tuned to sports and some soap opera but I don’t remember it being noisy. Even the bathrooms were clean.
