Born May 18, 1953; got saved at Truett Memorial BC in Hayesville, NC 1959. On rigged ballot which I did not rig got Most Intellectual class of 71, Gaffney High School. Furman Grad, Sociology major but it was little tougher than Auburn football players had Had three dates with beautiful women the summer of 1978. Did not marry any of em. Never married anybody cause what was available was undesirable and what was desirable was unaffordable. Unlucky in love as they say and even still it is sometimes heartbreaking. Had a Pakistani Jr. Davis Cupper on the Ropes the summer of 84, City Courts, Rome Georgia I've a baby sitter, watched peoples homes while they were away on Vacation. Freelance writer, local consultant, screenwriter, and the best damn substitute teacher of Floyd County Georgia in mid 80's according to an anonymous kid passed me on main street a few years later when I went back to get a sandwich at Schroeders.

Chile Cheese Slaw Dawg at the Cracker Barrel

Let me get right to the point: I have studied the children's menu at Cracker Barrel for some time now cause that seems the best avenue to getting tea without paying 2 dollars for it. Course they will beat you every time, but they do have a clean operation as JOe Biden would say, and they got that fireplace if you can't afford one in your own home during the winter.
I have pondered and pondered what would it take to get a chili slaw dawg there, cause it ain't on the menu "at the present time" as my brother would say.
Here is about the best I can do. CBarrel has come up with some good chili, and if you ask the right folks when you go in there you can get chile and a cheese sandwich for about 3.99 including tea. If you boil a couple Hebrew Nationals and can slip em past the hostess in a small to middlin glad bag, you are three quarters of the way home.
I like Chic Fil A slaw the best, but Cbarrel will have to do cause you can only get so much in a glad bag and remain inconpicuous. And you always run the risk of leakage.
If this don't suit you, go to Upstate South Carolina and get a skin's hot dog "All the way." That means chile, then find the closest CFA you can and get some slaw and you are getting pretty close, minus the Hebrew National.
Skins has a branch in Cornelia, Georgia if you can't make it all the way to Anderson and that vicinity.
Open to suggestions if any of yall got any.

Sfox, 54 soon and waning
