Lizard Licked

On a recent trip to eastern North Carolina, we stopped off on the east side of our county to see the shop where Lizard Lick Towing is filmed (TruTV - All Worked Up).  You might have seen the little hut set up in the parking lot on television...well, that is a small gift shop.  We stopped in, entered the door and began looking around when to our surprise Amy Shirley was sitting behind the counter.  We struck up a conversation, got invited to meet up with the rest of the cast that afternoon and took some photos.  Really nice folks.  Below are some photos from our adventures.

Selma Train Station

I recently made one of my usual runs to Selma to look for antique signs/license plates and decided to stop over at the historic train station.  The station, including Selma itself, has quite a history.  I would invite everyone to read some of the history of this station and town.  The most amazing fact is that one of the residents of Selma invented the salve that is now known as Vick's Vapo Rub.  It was sold out of Joshua Vick's Drugstore in downtown Selma.

Here of some pics of the train station - nicely preserved, museum-like appearance.
