A new look to an old standby …


A friend and I spent a lovely few hours this week at the Pik ‘n Pig, a restaurant in a nearby town that specializes in homemade barbecue. It’s not my favorite food but it’s fun to sit outside and watch the small planes land.

I hadn’t been there for a few years and was very surprised to see all the changes that have been made. As you can see in the pictures two memorials and a replica War plane are now on display. One plaque is in memory of a Moore County native son, James McConnell who fought in WWI and the other honors  Lt. Robert Hoyle Upchurch, a WWII airman who was a member of Chennaults “Flying Tigers” prior to the United States entry into the war.

Here we are…Olive and me, after a very hearty lunch complete with fried pickles !

I know you told me about that place. Maybe I can go there after I see my surgeon on the 14th!

Fried Pickles ?? I can see my food education is lacking.
I love it when the true heroes get proper notice.
