Visiting another small rural area with my Vespa (Ciela).
An observation I've made visiting small towns on my Vespa vs my other bikes: The vespa is just looked at, waved at, or ignored. Doing these same trips on my cruiser would result in continued observation or sometimes a police car following me or even stopping me to question what I was doing. Now I'm just a friendly wasp flying through town. When I parked directly in front of the town hall, I was glanced at by a couple of city workers then they just turned and continued on with what they were doing. This is refreshing!!!!

Took a ride to a small city named Warrior. Taking back roads of course. Passing through a small community named Sardis, I spotted a small one room school.
Upon entering Warrior, there is a popular restaurant named White House. Inside there are photos or other references to all the presidents of the U.S. of A.


Sardis one room school,


The popular White House Restaurant near southern city limits of Warrior.


First pic inside the restaurant of the presidential photo display.
A bit difficult to take good photos without getting the patrons!


Continuing around the wall........


Abe seems to have multiple types of displays.....


A photo in the line up, the large photo, then this one is by the entrance.....


Yes, more than one found favor by the restaurant owners for additional display besides the row near the ceiling.

Continuing on, there are 2 sections of the city. One part is old and one part is newer.
After leaving the White House, there is the new section with strip mall, gas stations, and fast food by the freeway. I took this photo of Piggy Wiggly as it seems to be humorous to none southerners. Maybe they are thinking Driving Mrs Daisy?


Also loving called "The Pig" by locals. Sentences like "I'm going to the Pig to buy groceries." is a common term.


Everyone knows the local furniture store. You are treated much different than at the big box stores.


This old Chevy mural may bring back some memories ....drive-in theaters, street racing, etc.


The old style pharmacy building.....


A few more shots of the main street.......




I'm getting old, but I think this used to be the old Ben Franklin 5 & 10.......
Edit: forgot to say Roll Tide / War Eagle :)
