And the letters keep on rolling in …
DACULA – As the famous twang of Hank Williams Jr. blasted from an SUV stereo Friday afternoon, about 30 folks socialized, sipped soda and puffed on cigarettes.
No, this wasn’t a Fourth of July backyard barbecue. It was the run-up to a wedding.
In a Waffle House parking lot.
The lucky couple, George “Bubba” Mathis and Pamela Christian – both 23 and employees at the Dacula diner located at the Ga. Highway 316/U.S. Highway 29 interchange – wouldn’t have it any other way.
“I don’t know, it’s something different,” Mathis said while fixing his tie prior to the ceremony.

Sweet Ann from Charleston, W.Va., sends in a new one:
WHEELING, W.Va. — A man with a nationally known mug shot and paint-covered face was arrested Tuesday for at least the seventh time on suspicion of huffing paint.
Patrick Tribett, 44, has been arrested on charges of huffing paint at least seven times. He’s had a history of huffing paint — and being caught — since 1998.
Police said they responded to a call on 12th and Chaplin streets in Wheeling around 8:40 p.m. and found Tribett with silver paint on his face. He was charged with inhaling intoxicants.
