Mountain City News and Fun

Well, here's all the news thats news and then some.

A farmer driving his combine down Main Street caused a traffic jam in downtown Mountain City.

You don't need a turn signal in Mountain City -- everyone knows where you're going anyway.

You can't get lost in Mountain City - Main Street dead ends in both directions.

Everyone reads the local paper here to make sure the publisher got the facts right.

Sign on Main Street Restaurant: Our restaurant is presently not open because it is closed.

Jim-Bob was over on Highway 91 and he had a flat tire. He pulled off to the side of the road. He got out and proceeded to put a bouquet of flowers in front of the car and one behind it. Then he got back into his car to wait for some help.

A guy from Florida passed by and saw him and was curious as to what he was doing. He turned around and went back and asked what the problem was.

Jim Bob said "I have a flat tire."

"But what's with the flowers?" asked the Floridian.

Jim Bob says, " When you break down they tell you to put flares in the front and flares in the back. I never did understand it neither."
A Tennessee State Trooper pulled over a pick up truck.
The trooper says "Got any ID?"
The driver says, "'Bout what?"
___________________________________________________________________________ I started my day off right - At Hardee's. Here's Willis in the Drive Thru waiting for his breakfast.

and Juanita and Peggy who have already had theirs.

My twin sisters Mae and Faye

and my brother in law Ralph with his favorite sister in law.

We watched a rainstorm coming up the valley

All that rain keeps everything green.

I got a lesson on how to dig ginseng from Jay.

Found a tobacco field that was being cut.

The green in the background is tobaco waiting to be cut.

That's it for today.

Hey Jenny, thanks for the tour of Johnson City! Enjoyed the 'down home' jokes too! Nice pics of your family! Looks like you're having a great time.

Jenny, all this Tennessee stuff is making me more homesick than I already am. We will be leaving Port Angeles Thursday morning and heading east. I'm anxious to get back to Nashville and see family and friends. You're right, family and friends are the best.

We will be near Spokane Friday afternoon for a one night stand. Let me know if you will be back by then. We'd love to meet you.

Jenny, as a grad of JCHS and a Masters level professional now, this post makes me sad. It makes Mtn City seem very very poor and uneducated, and that's not always the case. You write beautifully in other posts about home, but this one has bothered me.
