Frenzy, Fleas, and Fancy Gap

Schedule, most days:

7:00 a.m - 3:00 p.m.: Work for a living

3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.: Work at Mom's house

5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. Work at country casa

7:00 p.m. - 7 :00 a.m.: Grocery shop, cook dinner, do dishes, clean kitchen, clean bathrooms, vacuum house, do laundry, mow yard, pay bills, do Mom's laundry, pay Mom's bills, catch a little TV, write a little bit, catch up with friends and family. Oh, and sleep.

Last week, toss in Mom's stupid dog getting stupid fleas, and about 15 stupid hours of stupid shopping for stupid flea killing stuff for dog, mom, mom's house, and executing all of that stupid flea stuff. What stupid timing for stupid fleas to stupid invade the stupid dog.

Aw, he's a cute stupid dog.

Anyway, I don't have time to write. Maybe Wednesday.

In the meantime, here's a couple photos we grabbed on our trip, while driving through Fancy Gap, North Carolina.

We were quite amused with the name "Fancy Gap" and I made it clear to Clint that if I spotted "Fancy Gap Gynecology" there were no circumstances in which he could not hit the brakes and turn around for the photo op. Alas, no FG/OB/GYN, but I spotted this place on the way, and told Clint that we had to pull over for photos on the way back.

There are more photos here: Leonard's Market Gallery.

It was kind of a scary place. One sign said they'd be back at noon, but who knew if it was a legitimate sign or just a sign. Meanwhile, hard rock blasted from a radio inside, and no one seemed to notice our sneaking about with the camera.

That is all. I'll try to catch you Wednesday, k? Oh, and sorry about the raunchy gap jokes, but hey, Clint and I invariably morph into Beavis and Butthead after being on the road for 12 hours. And, it's just funny.


  1. I love it. All. Fancy Gap is a fine place... Y'all come back now, ya hear? :-) security word is "marys"!

  2. Fancy Gap Gynecology had me laughing out loud...

  3. Sock Lady9:35 AM

    Is Fancy Gap near Nags Head N.C.?

  4. oh need to give yourself a break. Is there anyway you can get some help at your mom's house? When we finally got a homecare worker for my folks it helped a lot....of course it's money, money, money....

    sorry about the stupid fleas....

  5. It looks like sonething out of Big Fish... or the Texas Chainsaw Massacre ;)

  6. Some of my best pictures are from stopping along the road on the way home to North Carolina. Nice photos.

  7. Love the gap jokes. Laughter keeps you sane, so keep doing it.

  8. Oh Sweetie, never apologize for the raunchy jokes... just keep 'em coming...

    What about "Fancy Gap Dentistry?" Yeah, I know - but that's all I got...

  9. i must say I am biased towards that King Edward sign...had a small version when I was a kid.Maybe its time for the BIG time ! really , steal me that sign. :-p
