Pilgrims in Savannah

As James Land Jones said, my visits to Savannah are like a Fellini film. 
From the drive down the Thanksgiving trip was everything from upheaval to settling down in old Savannah Victorian camp charm.
Dinner at Ben Head's was delicious. My  Dad, who seldom eats much,  enjoyed a large helping of Molasses pork loin and sweet potatoes. Kathy talked of Michner's Texas, Darryl of Menchen, John of his daughter Maggie, Ben of the history of the Davenport House, and all of us , except silent, contented Dad, of the Catholic Church and Oscar Wilde, Kathy quoting, "Marriage is the triumph of habit over hate."

We  settled  into the Bed and Breakfast Inn and were upgraded to the Jasper House. Dar, John, Lee and Steve Killian,  Joe Mydell and John's friend Connie gathered one afternoon. Ben, Dad and Kathy joined the above for a Saturday get together in the double parlor.  Here is a glimpse of our house.

Sgt. Jasper House

Our most ornate, spacious, and discerning of accommodations. 

It is a three floor row house next to the inn.

 The oversized parlor and dining room of the Jasper House will sweep you back to a bygone time, with turn of the century furnishings, artwork, and decor. The remodeled gourmet kitchen will make you feel pampered. Upstairs are 4 bedrooms and 2 baths. Two bedrooms contain a single queen bed each, and two bedrooms contain two twin beds each. Each room is decorated with a unique style, and the Jasper House can accommodate up to 8 adults. The Jasper House is sold nightly as a choice room with inn amenities or for a weekly vacation rental rate without inn amenities.
