Birthday Memories in Gainesville, Georgia

Forest City, Florida

Story Narrative:

"My favorite memory of growing up in the small town of Gainesville, Georgia, is my birthday party. I had a birthday party at a restaurant, and we had a buffet, and I had a homemade birthday cake--it was Loretta Lynn's recipe of gooey cake. I thought maybe there would be about 30 people at my birthday party, and 54 showed up.

I thought to myself I'll get up and get a soda for whoever is that special to me, and I ended up getting up for everybody, except for the babies that had their bottles! I got up for everybody because everybody was so special to me, and being in that small town I was able to form a close and bonding relationship with all the people that were around me, and that was my favorite memory of Gainesville, Georgia."
