Mathews Court House--which refers to our "downtown" commercial area as opposed to the courthouse which refers to the place where court is held--has some
quirky interesting signs.
For example, most people might call the space between Hudgins Pharmacy and the old French's pool hall an alley. But not us.
We designate it a walk and give it a name: Farmers' Fishermen's Walk. (Although Mathews has more than its fair share of farmers and fishermen, it's pretty much guaranteed you won't see any if you happen to find yourself promenading along Farmers' Fishermen's Walk. Hudgins drug store used to be the Farmers' and Fishermen's Bank. That part I understand. I'm struggling with the "walk" part though, I can't lie.)
|This is it. The Walk. For best results, walk slowly. You don't want to miss anything!|
|It's always preferable to heal locally.|
|Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus--and Mathews does indeed have a film society.|
This concludes our brief trip around the block in Mathews Court House.
Be sure to head down to the Court House on Saturday at 1 for the annual Christmas parade, which they say will be held rain or shine. I'll be hanging out around Sutton & Kline (also known as Moughon's) with my trusty camera.
Have a great weekend.
