It’s a terrible dilemna – surely you can see that.

Do I go in and get the 16p nails I need first, then step over and get my Valium refill? Or, do I get the Valium first, pop a few, go grab an ice-cold Co-Coler and sit down to chat for a while with Mr. McLeskey or Mr. Todd. Never know, the hippophile in us might come out and we can talk about my old bay mare until the Valium kicks in. Then I can saunter off and wander around the store and get those 16p nails, some charcoal, a magnet, an old cardboard box if the have it, 3 feet of twine and a tin of snuff. I got thirty bucks so that should be enough to pay for it all.

It surely is a dilemna.

A little made up tale for my second submission to the “Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Life.”

I don’t know if this place is still open, but when I took this picture it was.

“Things are different today,”
I hear ev’ry mother say
Mother needs something today to calm her down
And though she’s not really ill
There’s a little yellow pill
She goes running for the shelter of her mother’s little helper
And it helps her on her way, gets her through her busy day. ~From “Mother’s Little Helper” by The Rolling Stones

Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Life

St. Helena Island, Beaufort, SC, USA

Here is the question. Is a street the same as a road, and vice versa? In my opinion, and as it applies to this challenge, yes – a street is a road and a road is a street, particularly this road. But where, you ask, is the street life? All around! You just can’t see it. This road (street) is teeming with life. Within just a few hundred feet in any direction are marshy wetlands, filled with all manner of critters that make wetlands their home – snakes, newts, frogs, birds, insects, spiders, alligators…and the list could go on.

A little different, but this is my submission to the “Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Life.”

This road is on St. Helena Island in Beaufort, SC, USA. It was taken near a little place we like to visit whenever we can. Click the photo and it will take you to a map.
