If the booth looks tight, it is

Continuing with our mini restaurant series, we present the above pic. George’s on Concord. Question to self: WHY is this restaurant not popping up on Google? Ohhhhh….it’s actually Pete’s on Concord. That’s it. Pete’s on Concord is one of the many fabulous restaurants in Anderson and its surrounding area owned by Greeks and Greek families. Patrons often just call it George’s. Anderson misses him. He passed away too young. The restaurant contains many small tributes to its former owner, including the first page of the menu: George’s Specialty Sandwiches. I’m working my way through the list.

Good Cookin’

Filed under: Restaurants and Commerce — lessie @ 6:00 am

I met Candice, the waitress above, not long ago when visiting Mama Penn’s. She is a really sweet person and a great server. I wish I had gotten a better pic of her: like in many restaurants, the light was really low (and I hate using a flash). After Angie’s post here of Mama Penn’s fried chicken, I was inspired to post this shot anyway, flaws and all. Thanks for your good service, Candice! Mama Penn’s is just off N. Main. Really delicious food.

Love that Meadow Thing

Filed under: Spring & Summer — lessie @ 6:16 am

Weeds, yes, but still pretty, no? A nearby vacant lot.

Rhymes with Dribble

Instantly fell in love with this old street sign and the wall behind it. ‘Nuff said.

Angie and I went to Chili’s, off Clemson Blvd., on Saturday. Talk about a humid day! The sprinkles were non-stop, and it was nice to be inside. Jason, the above server, was friendly and efficient. We can’t recommend the Queso and Chips — but the Chicken Crispers are excellent. 🙂

Even at my ripe age, I get excited to see a fire truck. I took it as a good sign that this one wasn’t in a hurry. Corner of Fant and Greenville Streets.

Wishing You a Peaceful Memorial Day

Filed under: Homes — lessie @ 6:53 am

The scene spoke peace to me. Evening light does that, I guess. Hope your Memorial Day is tranquil and restful. Many thanks to all who have served the U.S. in the military, as civil servants, and by volunteering in the community.

Tropical Goodness?

Filed under: Spring & Summer — lessie @ 6:48 am

Another wholesome plant life from my dear neighbor’s garden. (You can see the twig teepee (?) to the right in the background.) I have NO IDEA what this plant is, but I like the red color.

every rOse has a thorn

Filed under: Animals — lessie @ 6:49 am

I don’t hate exercise, but I have to MAKE myself do it. You’d think walking around the neighborhood would be easy. Fortunately, running into a cutie like the above really helps my motivation. She loved on Crocky boy (who was very good and layed on his back for a while) and she even seranaded me with Poison’s Every Rose Has a Thorn. Adorable neighbor.

Neighbors Are a Blessing

Filed under: Spring & Summer — lessie @ 6:45 am

Thank you, kind neighbor, for planting these beautiful…uh, daisies [?]. I had no idea such color existed — and in late May no less! Snapping pics of them really lightened my mood last night. Little Croc, the newish monster puppy, kept jumping at them, making them wave and blur, so I hope to go back and photograph more soon.
