Seen In My Travels

I spent yesterday in Murphy, North Carolina on business. Murphy is famous as the second half of a familiar North Carolina phrase, “from Manteo to Murphy”, used to describe the width of the state. That distance, by the way, is 474 miles as the crow flies or 545 miles by road.

I was driving to my first appointment of the day when I came around a curve on US Hwy 64 and saw this huge billboard. I didn’t have time to stop then but circled back after the appointment to take a picture.

The store’s slogan is “Refills or reloads, we have you covered”. If I lived in McCaysville or nearby in the tri-state area, I think I might rather deal with them than a CVS or Walgreens.
