Directions, discovery and the Blue Ribbon

- These fun signs beside Tommy's Store in tiny Hayesville, NC that point in the direction of other cities, New York, Asheville, Miami, etc. So many directions we could go... I am off to Pensacola, Florida this morning for the weekend and hope to have some pictures for Monday.

- Discovering another library I can use in the nearby suburb of Clarkston, Georgia. Telling the librarian how much I admire the new library, he says it has been there for 15 years. Oops. :)

- A lovely dinner with an old friend at the Blue Ribbon Grill where the slogan is: "You Gotta Eat Somewhere and We Need the Money." Black and Bleu steak salad and a summery pineapple and rum drink in a martini glass. Yum.

I love the Blue Ribbon Grill's attitude. That drink sounds yummy!

Mama Zen -

The Blue Ribbon is a down to earth place - love the staff there.

Cookie -

I know - those signs were so unexpected. :)

Talon -

The drink was yummy - unusual for me to get a drink like that. It was fun for a change.

The library...Lynn, that is so funny! Makes you wonder about other stuff you see...is it new, or just new to you. At least...that's how it is with me!

The Blue Ribbon sounds pretty all right!

I love those signs!
Have yourself a wonderful trip to Pennsecola. My sis recently drove there from near Clearwater to pick-up visiting grand-kids.
That grille sounds like an honest place to feed-
