    Alan, I am an educator, poet, artist, songwriter; pretty much like yourself. I heard you are going to be in Tifton, GA in the relatively near future. I live near Tifton and would like to introduce myself to you. I believe we share a lot in common. My wife Sara, and I live in an old southern boarding house (1907) and would like to offer an invitation for you to stay in our home while you’re dealing with the Heritage Festival, or whatever the event is called.
