Tea on Tuesday
As I write, late again to Tea on Tuesday, I am searching for pictures to complement today's theme "Where I Live". With 6,000 or so photos saved on my computer - it would take too long!! So, here are a few from yesterday, and from the other week, when there was still snow about!!
I am not sipping tea today (shhhh!), but plain ice water with fresh mint leaves floating in it. So, not only am I late, but I'm not even drinking tea!!!LOL
Today's theme is "Where I Live".
My town is Fulks Run, Va. A run is a small creek - they seem to be everywhere around here. Altho, I have heard a story that Fulks Run was named after the moonshine run between here and the town of Broadway. I think I prefer that story - a bit more colorful than just being named after a creek!!
This lovely little town is kind of a blink and you'll miss it place- on the main road thru town, heading to West Va, there's the elementary school, Turner Ham Grocery, Mac's Superette food and gas, Valleyland where the locals hang for lunch, a tiny 2 seater hair salon open 3 days a week, a small lumber store, and the Post Office. There are several other businesses hidden down old gravel roads - Bare's Auto Repair, Yankey's Firewood, and numerous cattle and chicken farms. There is a kind of Andy of Mayberry charm within this town - the bank in the next town runs episodes of Andy of Mayberry over and over in the waiting area- that and a new puzzle on the table, will keep you busy, if you have to wait to see the bank manager! I love it!!
Downtown Broadway has a bit more to offer, and Harrisonburg, home of JMU, even more.
Small town living is the life for me, as the theme song for "Green Acres" proclaims- I love it here!
The pictures show (not in any particular order) a mural on a building in Broadway- looks like the historic Meem's covered bridge; some barn art near the Mauzy exit of I-81; the center of town in Harrisonburg,Main Street in downtown Broadway in the rain; sitting amongst the fencing at the co-op staring at the chicken factory; the last snow I hope to see here for a long time!!!
