Kentucky has its share of unusual place names.

Near where I live, there's Lovelaceville, Fancy Farm and Monkey's Eyebrow.

On the way to my youngest brother's house I drive through Cold Water and Stella and travel near Possum Trot.

Buck thought I was joking when I told him about these names. That is, until he drove the roads and he saw the signs for himself.

It's not much more than a wide spot in the road, but it's where the area television transmitter tower is located.

In Georgia, there's Santa Claus, Talking Rock, Between, Experiment, Flippen, Butts, Hog Mountain, and some that ought not be repeated.

Near the town of Sunnyside in south Georgia are the counties of Bacon and Coffee.
