Three weeks ago, Matt and I drove to Pensacola (about 965 miles each way) to visit my family and see my brother graduate from high school

I was really looking forward to the long trip to clear my head and see the countryscape again.

I forgot how many strange things you see on the road.

For example:

We saw a large bulldog statue in Chattanooga that eerily resembled Adolf Hitler. (Couldn’t find the picture of the actual statue, but this is very close.)

We saw an interesting sign, proclaiming “Go to church, or the devil will get you.” Yep, that’ll bring ‘em in.

We visited a Waffle House restaurant where a man was shot dead…I presume after learning that they don’t salt their grits?

We  also saw a pretty wildly tricked-out white Cadillac with horseshoes and Christmas lights. (No picture available, whatsoever. Not even close.)

It was a great trip with lots of quality time spent with family, friends, God, and Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.When I get around to it, I want to put some pics up from that weekend. We’ll see how that goes. 🙂
