Others still who never read them, signs.
I can certainly say I never thought I would have a Neil Diamond quote up.
Our local country store- I have never had a hot dog here but I admit they do smell good.
Forget "Virginia is for lovers." We seem to be more about the lottery and cigarettes.
The have a few "over the top" historians here. When our photo club Patrick Country tourist calender was done "they" had a fit because the photo from the Battle Recreated At Jeb Stuart's birthplace had a photo of the Yankees....and not the South. Actually some people were so upset that the calender was reprinted and that photo removed.
I never even noticed.
By gosh you know you're country when these are own your main highways. But I love these signs. Naomi I bet you don't have these in LA do you?
I come from the zone known as "The meat and threes." Actually this picture came from over the state line in Mount Airy, NC and they only offer two veggie choices but the concept is the same. You get a meat and your veggies and some nice sweet ice tea. And some hush puppies or rolls or corn bread...and it is actually usually pretty darned tasty! If you are ever a tourist around a meat and three area you have to try it once.
Mount Airy is the real Mayberry you know.
I lived here before I married T and moved to Stuart, VA. My brother lives here. I go to the gym and spend half my time here. I have best friends who work and live here.
Actually last night I was out having dinner with my girl friends in the charming town of Mount Airy. It is actually a very cool little town.
This is on my way home from Mount Airy to Stuart. It isn't a sign but I am rolling down the highway at 55mph so I didn't exactly capture the sign. I've just always wanted to show you this bizarro world of pottery. Anything you could ever imagine. I suppose these things go to putt putt courses maybe?
This is where little Rollie grew up. Mom and dad and baby sis and grandma still live in Claudville. Rollie will be buried in Claudville...poor Toonces is not happy about being stuck over in Claudville with Rollie and all her relatives for eternity!
Virginia really doesn't like speeders. I bet they don't like the rednecks that shoot out their signs or egg them either.
And we couldn't end without the famous church sign.
Visit Laura to play along.
