When my friend Beanie drove us to the mountains last weekend for the e-mail group meeting, we had to take a detour around a wreck which created chaos on southbound I-85 for much of the day. The detour took us through some small towns and past some sights we weren’t expecting. We weren’t quite sure who was in a time warp–us or the small towners.
For instance, just up the road from the hair salon which had a big sign out front advertising this special: MACRO or KINKY, we drove past a second beauty establishment:
We weren’t sure just what looks were being offering at either of them.
We did not brake for the Pumpkin Opry, even though it was large enough that plenty of other folks must.
This wonderful pumpkin display at a plant nursery outside of Cashiers was definitely worth a U-turn.
Wait! There’s more…
And best of all. . .
