I'm back from the Blue Ridge Mountain area and am feeling like this guy who hurled his body at me, blocking my path on Second Street last night. A bit rotund in the stomach! It's been a while since I have been out of the NY metropolitan area and it was shocking to me just how LARGE people in america are. But since cases of soda are cheaper than a gallon of milk these days it's not surprising. I felt svelte and my sister who is in the thin side said she felt anorexic! Anyway fried food is fun for a while but a couple of days of hush pupppies has me feeling like eating nothing but green, which is hard to come by on the road to the south. It's sad how every roadside stop is the same with the identical fast food chains in every town making nothing unique. If you go furthur into the older parts of town you can find some independently owned places but it ain't easy and especially when time is of the essence! Surprisingly I didn't take many photos. This is one of the few- it's Hendersonville, North Carolina on a Sunday morning. As the saying goes it was about 90 degrees in the shade!
