after living in Seagrove for a few weeks i posted a list of things i had learned during that short time. since it's been one year i copied the list and added a few things at the end (lines with *)...
the bugs here are MUCH bigger than NH
you can't buy liquor in seagrove ... it's a dry town (i wonder what they sell at the convenience stores?)
the night sounds different... almost tropical (i think it is because of those bigger bugs)
the fruit is sweeter and fresher... i am enjoying lots of blueberries and watermelon this week
there is a lot more pork to choose from in the grocery store
it stays light in the evening a wee bit longer (my imagination perhaps?)
everyone is friendlier... even the people that work at walmart.
the pesticide/insecticide section in stores is HUGE (must be because of those big bugs again)
you can buy snake repellant at walmart (i hope i won't ever need it)
they sell pine needles for mulch at garden centers (in NH we have to pay people to take them away)
biscuits are a food group
*church's have a postcard recruiting program
*cashiers at stores hand me my receipt and tell me to have a blessed day
*greens are sold in HUGE packages just before New Years day
*you can ONLY buy wine (no beer or liquor) in the neighboring town of Robbins (now that's odd)
*i am called Ma'am on a regular basis
*moonshine still exists
*banana pudding is still popular (it had a short stint in the north, about 20 years ago)
*sweet tea is the most common beverage
*fried okra is delicious
*i have considered buying snake repellant (see line 9)
*fall is beautiful
*there really is a spring! (unlike NH)
*winter is short (YAY!)
it's been a wonderful year... i do miss my family and friends in NH and i have made lots of new friends here in the Seagrove area.
Life is Good... just like the hats, shirts & stickers say.
