A Baseball Team!

 This is me.

(Finally) resolved to take in the Southern summer. It only took me four summers.

Alright humidity, bugs, and electric-frizz-hair. Let's go....

To the lake that you can't swim in or hike around or run around..... but you CAN row a boat on!

To the state farmers market to buy a bushel of peaches, a slice of chocolate pie (how did I not know this existed) and personal sized watermelon!

Drink an iced coffee before 8 am because that's the only time you can go outside!

To a small town called Saxapahaw (the second 'a' is silent) where there is free music and a farmers market, a lovely river flowing by and three American flags on massive bamboo (?) poles!

And finally, the southern summers just got that much better thanks to a random old guy at the farmers market who took me aside to tell me a great joke...

What has 18 legs and catches flies?


  1. i don't know what???

    ps, lovely pictures. i want to do all those things too.

  2. I will give you a hint...its right here on this blog... :)

  3. Thanks for the flag photo, I put those up with DOT permission for July 4th. Just put up two for the Holiday Oct. 8 and am heading toward a few for Oct 28 (Who ever heard about Navy Day). Thanks for noticing and for posting a photo. That long pole has an extra small flag on purpose to make the pole seem longer. Regards,
