Small-Town Charm

Frederick, Maryland is a small town, with lots of historic relevance and Mayberry-esque stuff. Since it was such a nice day (75 and sunny, versus the 110 in Phoenix - ha!), we decided to take a stroll through the historic section of downtown Frederick. We found lots of neat little shops - and you know me: camera ready for any oddities.

So far, I've found the following:

The plaque on this cast-iron dog statue says her name is Charity and she has been here since 1858. That's one old dog!

Next, every small town needs at least one of these:

For only $25, I could get a body piercing. That sounds reasonable. I could always do one of those web-thingies where I encourage viewers to suggest and vote on where I should get a body piercing, and then broadcast the event live. That assumes I trust people. Haha. That's funny.

This next one is something I have not seen in a LONG time....

Finally, this one really caught my eye:

It's a wall mural - can you believe it? Someone painted it on here - it looks so real and 3-dimensional. Now that's talent.

Now if we can just convince Trader Joe's that small-town Frederick is *thee* place to be....

How about a piercing thru the temple?

Or is that too crass?

Oh god, I dunno what I'd do without Trader Joe's. Maybe just die?
