We got back from our trip to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park a couple of days ago and I have been working to get caught up with this and that. I thought I would share with you a few things we saw along the way.
Somewhere in Pennsylvania, we got off the highway to avoid heavy traffic and passed through a town, which I believe is Pottsville, home of Yuengling beer. Anyhow, I was taken by this doorway. The sign above says "Grateful Thread." Do you suppose they sold clothing or fabric?
Have you been wondering what's happened to Superman lately? I spotted him hitching a ride somewhere in Virginia. With the state of the world the way it is right now, I think he needs to wake up and get to work.
Once we got into Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, we were dazzled by all the entertainment possibilities. Too bad we weren't staying close to there. I would have liked to know what that pig would have said about the state of my mind.
You know, people always have to write on things. They just can't seem to help it. We saw this particular graffiti on a stone wall inside The Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Reminds me of my mother who used to say, "If you have kids, you can't have anything nice." Of course, she got a good crop of nice kids and, you know, she would definitely admit to that.
I think when you are traveling in the mountains and they tell you to downshift, you should do it. Boy, I can still smell this guy's breaks.
Stopping at one of the information centers for a bathroom break, I decided to hold my bladder and to take pictures of crows instead. These guys were arguing with a chicken over the possession of half an apple. I could have watched them for hours.
And all this happened before we got to our final destination. I love being on the road.
