Charles Marshburn: Vidalia Rings a Bell!

Charles Marshburn writes
Whenever I hear "Vidalia" I think of a trip with a friend of mine to see the Master's Golf Tournament in Augusta, GA. Vidalia, GA, is a small town about the size of Columbia and is the center for growing the famous Vidalia onions.

My buddy, Pell, is famous in Georgia as being the only person who ever ordered wheat toast in that area. He is a former Californian and some say nobody from that state is "quite right".

Pell had the fantastic idea of stopping at a grocery store in downtown Vidalia to purchase a couple bags of the famous onions. There were none to be had! The produce fellow said that they ship almost all of the sought after onions to markets out of the area. - Charles Marshburn
