Well, when small towns want to make some cash, they have to work hard to find their special "niche." Soldotna, Alaska for example is the "King Salmon Capital of the World." Some town in Kansas has the world's largest ball of twine. We small towners have to use what we got.
Oh, hooray...we made it.Nothing says "Welcome to our town" like a big black hearse
parked right on Main Street. It reminded me of the Ghostbusters
Ambulance...no Bill Murray popped out though. :(
Picture with me for a moment the irony of this painting.
Chillicothe also prides itself for its many murals on the building
sides which are quite well done. This one I found strangely placed.
It is of a hurricane sized wave (we are in the middle of America)
and it the trees on the shore are pines.
With what looks like snow painted on them.
You think I make this stuff up?
What is a girl to do but to visit the local bread store and of course,
purchase sliced bread for her family and friends. They even had
San Fransisco Sourdough. Does California's power know no end?
I like the Twinkie guy on the door. He looks so happy. Probably
because he is so full of preservatives he knows that he is the
Dick Clark of snack foods and will never age. :)
Thankfully my bread and I made the trip home safely,
without of the help of the town hearse.
I am telling you, these small towns should PAY me
to write their marketing ads! Doesn't it make you want to go visit? :)
