Friday Randoms



Just a little graffiti to start your day.  


Donald Featherstone passed into the great beyond.  If that name doesn't ring a bell, then just know he is famous for creating the pink lawn flamingo.  



Moonshine has been big business in The South for many years.  Part of our cultural heritage, it is now becoming mainstream.  



My knife making son is always counseling me on the type of knives I own and how sharp they are.  Well, here is a primer for all of us.  



Sending you off into the weekend with a little Lynyrd.  



Linking up with Tanya today.....have a great one!

    1. Funny. I saw that and thought, "Oh, no, in a small town?" Such an idealist I am.

    2. Actually, this was taken in a larger city about a week ago. Graffiti isn't typically present in my small town.

  5. That's funny/cute graffiti, it made me smile.
    I did not know the name Donald Featherstone but I am familiar with those Pink Flamingo's and as you've seen a few of them have been featured on my blog. RIP Mr. Featherstone, you've delighted millions with your flamingo's.
    Very interesting about the knives. Reminded me that there is a show now on the History Channel called, Forged In Fire which showcases knife building skills.
    Good musical choice. Have a great weekend.

  6. When I grew up in a small town, I thought I wanted out for the big city. Now I'm living in suburbia and writing about small towns and getting to them whenever I can. We have a white colonial bandstand in the center of Warrensburg, New York.

  9. Talked to a guy at the garden center with no teeth who told me his uncle still makes moonshine. But, you are right, it is all the rage now. I saw some in the liquor store in a canning jar filled with cherries. It was pretty pricey so I didn't buy it. Sounded good though, but I bet it tasted like cherry gasoline.

  11. Tom had a clever idea about putting flock of flamingos on his grave...I did not know who came up with that idea. My husband makes knives...I have pictures on both my blogs. Thanks for Lynryd!

  12. A neighbor around here puts about a dozen pink flamingoes on the front lawn when he has a party. They are tacky, yes, but I like them.

    1. Jack, I think plastic, pink flamingos do have their charm. And, actually, putting a bunch on the front lawn for a party sounds like a fine ides to me!

  13. Philosophical question of the day: If moonshine is made in a building and not on a hillside in the woods, and if it's legal, is it still moonshine? :-)
    I love me some Lynyrd Skynrd!!!!
    I always thought the pink flamingos were tacky, but now I feel guilty!

  18. Growing up this 13 year old just had to have his jackknife in his pocket: rite of passage.
