I'm talking about visiting Laurens, SC. Kinda reminds me of Mayberry RFD. No offense Andy and Oppie, but this small town is so neat. It has the Courthouse Square with surroundg shops. (Just like on TV!!!) There's the town Barber with real barber chairs and the barber pole out front. Floyd would be envious!! The single Barber and owner must know everyone... at least every guy in town!! I love to take my brother there and just listen to all these men, while sitting and waiting for their turn in the chair and chatting and catching up on all the guys stuff, just like some of us women tend to do at the Salon. I truly enjoy my visit every time I go. There's the local soda shop and a few botiques, all within a block area. They also have a couple auto dealerships close by, (but I'm sure on a much larger & modern scale than Mayberry's time.) But I have to admit one particular salesman at the dealer where I purchased my car has been there 30 some years and he too has probably sold half the cars driving the roads in Laurens, and knows everyone. What a sweet man.
And since we're in South Carolina... why wouldn't there be an awsome Bar-B-Que place. The staff is so friendly and knows exactly what we order every time we arrive. Not far from the Square. Everything cooked on the spot and always fresh. YUM!!! Since I don't live far from there I tend to do a lot of business there and enjoy every minute. And to top it all off, I just love driving around town. There is such a variety of homes, from a Mill Village to stately Victorian Mansions, such architecture, brick and stone to fancy wood trim. Huge oak trees and sidewalks line most of the streets. Just a beautiful place to live and call home.
