Where I Live

Some days it feels like I live just on the outskirts of suburbia.  We live exactly 30 minutes from anywhere - Athens, Gainesville, Mall of Georgia, a Target, a Wal Mart, a Home Depot.... 

But then there are other days when it feel like we live in the country.  No two ways about it.  We have cows, chickens and goats, country roads and red dirt.  There are more churches than there are gas stations.  (That may or may not be true, but it certainly feels that way.) 

These are some pictures that I took at the post office that I stop at many, many times during the week.  Its my favorite post office and I love the ladies that work there.  There is never a line.  Beware though, they are closed from 11:45 to 12:45 everyday for lunch.  Yes, the post office closes for lunch.

It looks like a step back in time, doesn't it?  The next picture is take on the driveway of the post office to the building behind it - the town library, city hall and police station.



And here's the fire station...which is right next door to the post office.  Its a volunteer station.  But, I'm sure you would have figured that one out.


And here's the railroad tracks...across and down the street.


To be fair, I'll take a day and post pictures from the other two post offices that I use in my area.  One is in a much more populated area.  A downtown area, if you will.  :)

I stop there and get a Mountain Dew every morning. There still .50 at that machine :)
