Dawg Sightings around the World
Ron Hudspeth, an AJC columnist along with Lewis Grizzard back in the 1980s, used to write a column that included, among other random fun stuff, Dawg sightings from unusual places. Thought it would be fun to hear yours in this forum.
Here’s mine: I lived in the city of Karaganda, Kazakhstan for 8 years. This was the 3rd largest gulag work camp site under Stalin during the USSR. Needless to say, if this place wasn’t the end of the earth, you could at least see it from there.
We lived, like most everyone else, in a drab Soviet apartment block where all the buildings look alike. Snow and ice covered the ground for 5 months from November through mid-April. May snowstorms were not uncommon.
One early fall day in 2012 I was walking across the courtyard when I spotted Sergei, a local guy that had done some water pipe repairs for me and also worked as a yard-man around our “micro-region.” He was wearing an old jacket with a gray and red “Georgia Bulldogs” sweat shirt!
When I asked him where he got it, he smiled and said, “подарок!” (a gift!). Who gave it to him I could never figure out!
