Pumpkin pots & bone boxes

A twisty two-lane road meanders past dusty old farms, a dustier church with its bell frozen sideways by rust, and a forbidding quarry lake, as still as an August funeral, and the color of pea soup.

Unfamiliar landmarks zip by. A collapsed barn. A gas station with a Cadillac on the roof. A defunct drive-in filled with the corpses of old tractors and lawn mowers. A concrete dinosaur.

And a sign that reads, “See Bigfoot’s Glass Eye!”
