|This is Mr. Bear...|
Do you ever have those fun Saturdays when you go out with your grandparents and get taken to old country stores for ice cream + antiques? We sure do and this time we landed a gold mine outside of a small town, which is outside of a slightly less small town in North Carolina.
Our journey took us outside of Burgaw, North Carolina, which is where I went to high school, and fortunately where I have left! It's not that it's a bad place to live, it's just a bad place for young people who want to make something of their lives...I'm sure you can all think of someplace like this...
Anywho, it's not the place but the people, isn't that right?
For the record I would like everyone to know that this place has a stuffed bear and while they do not approve of touching him I think he's great for portraits.
Now that I think about it, I am reminded of a funny, yet true story about a bunch of youths getting mauled by she-bears in the Old Testament. It's a brilliant story that teaches a lesson: "Don't disrespect your elders and/or God's messengers; it just might get you killed." We were spared because we didn't disrespect our elders and managed to have an amazing day; imagine that? Thanks for stopping by.
