Futuristic, treat and our song

The Jetsons called, they want their house back.

- A happy accident - finding this futuristic house on Northside Drive in Atlanta after taking a wrong turn. I can just imagine George, Jane his wife, daugher Judy and his boy Elroy inside.

- Stopping by Caribou Coffee for a morning treat of a latte and blackberry / white chocolate scone. Strangely good flavor combination on the scone.

- Receiving a birth announcement for a baby girl with a big name, Penelope. But she will be called Penny and her last name rhymes with Lane, so you know what our song will be.

What a find! That's exactly the sort of house the Jetson's would live in. Is that Astro in the yard?

Chocolate and fruit? Is there ever a bad combination? :)

I'll be humming Penny Lane all day (which isn't a bad thing!).

Talon -

I had to find a place to pull off the road and walk back. That might just be Astro, and Rosie's car is probably the one in the driveway. :)

Ooh - it had big chunks of white chocolate. Divine!

A good song to sing all day, for sure!

A big welcome to Penny...into this world we live in!

That house looks really futuristic (I like it!!)

A stop at the coffee shop is always good!

Have a great weekend Lynn!

Thanks for stopping by Lance. I love that the picture they sent of Penny shows her exercising her lungs (big time.) She announces her presence with alacrity!

You have a great weekend, too!

Cool place! The Jetsons does immediately come to mind- wonder who the architect is? Must've cost a fortune too-
Hope you can find your way back there to ask questions!

Snaggle, Mama Zen, Jannie and Arca -

I tried Googling with key words: Jetsons futuristic Northside Drive house and only found other mentions of it on other blogs. Rats - I would like to know what inspired it.

Jannie -

I just thought about you - just had a warm apple fritter. Love the pastries, too. YUM.

Definitely odd.

Althouhg it wouldn't be out of place here in Connecticut.

Hey G -

I wonder how many knocks on the door that family gets with questions about the house. Still hoping to find out about it one day.
