The things you see along the way…


I went searching through my Florida pics from January to find some photos of my nephew Neil and his wife Winona.  While on the search, I got stuck looking at some road pictures.  It occurred to me that I hadn’t really looked at these at all and I decided to post some today.  Here are some of the things we saw along the way on our drive to and from Apalachicola, Florida.


I think we may have seen the world’s largest peanut at a rest area in the state of Alabama.


Going through the town of Dothan, Alabama, a charming and interesting place indeed, we saw many murals.  This one reminds me that violence among men is nothing new.


Seen on the back of a truck.  We never did figure out what they support…
but then I’m not really sure I care.


We saw a cat with a deep interest in antiques.


Road Work Ahead…Really???


Have you ever wondered what birds on a wire talk about all day?  Here’s what I think.

These were great. Can't decide which ones I like the most. Got a good chuckle from the talking birds, loved the antique loving cat and the giant peanut was very interesting.

Oh, these were fun. I'm sitting here giggling at the birds and the cat (who I might add looked a little pissed at being distracted).

Thanks for the laughs.
