We Live In A Really Weird Place!!

Why do people make jokes about Kentucky?

Because we ASK for it!

I took this picture yesterday about two miles from our house.

Do you also have a diner/gas station with a sign that says: "Eat here and get gas."?

One year some of the ladies at my church's ladies retreat (in North Carolina) decided to go get sandwiches. We decided to pass on the restaurant that had a big sign out front, "Sandwiches and Bait."

There was one of those homemade sandwich and live bait stores near my home here in Virginia. Gone now, but lasted for over 20 years. I never patronized the place.

Well, you know what they say about Kentucky: "Three million people, five last names."

Yeah. They said they were tired of being teased because they lived in Pennsylvania.

Hope you had your shoes off when you said that!

Of course, upscale ones are called "hillwilliams."

There's a place in Maryland, down the street from my old house, it was a deli and bait shop. I was too scared to ever try it out.

By way of adding to the stereotype, allow me to announce that Katie and I are currently sitting on the front porch listening to the sounds of the first demolition derby of the season at the county fairgrounds just up the road from our house. At least they had the decency of starting the festivities with a live rendition of the National Anthem.

God Bless Murrika!
