We could all use a good cheer-me-up from the Green Creek Fire & Rescue Department. Here's this week's goodie.
You gotta love someone who puts up a sign like this. And yes, I heeded the caution and gave the puddle plenty of room. Found this sign up in Saluda on Saturday afternoon.
This Saturday morning and most Saturday mornings you can find The Peanut Man of Landrum cooking up and selling batches of hot boiled peanuts. If you haven't tried them, check them out. Most people become addicted. The Peanut Man usually sets up at the corner of the parking lot of the Shell Station convenience store in Landrum, SC right near the onramp to I-26. With one stop you can fuel your car and yourself before making your way home. The Peanut Man is usually there from at 8 AM until he sells out.
Tryon Theatre, the movie theater in downtown Tryon, has been closed for months. The owners frequently switch out the marquee wording with encouragement to hang in there...they will return. After all, this movie house has been showing films since 1935. A few years ago it was completely renovated. They do open up for an hour on Friday and Saturday nights to sell that good old tasty movie house popcorn you can get nowhere else.
The whole community is ready to enjoy their home movie house once more.
It's not that I visit the Green Creek Fire & Rescue Headquarters just to take photos of their sign; it's where I go to drop off my recycling most Wednesdays. But an added bonus is getting a chance to jump start my day with something to chew on other than a treat from Martha's Amish Bakery which is often a stop on my way home. They give me something else to chew on. I love both chances to brighten my day.
...retired in 2017 from a life of work, mostly in education. I decided it was time to stop commuting and stay at home a while. Foothills Faces is meant to bring you short snippets of life through photography, videography, and audio recordings of some of the wonderful people and places of the Carolina Foothills..
