From the “Only in Alabama” department…
On the way home from the ship, we stopped for a bio-break at a Stuckey’s in Verbena, Alabama. As we entered the store I felt something vaguely disquieting. I couldn’t put my finger on it until we approached the counter to pay for our pecan logs.
Oh that’s it. There’s a stuffed cat and a stuffed schnauzer on the counter. Ex-pets, we discovered.
“Hello, is this the Alabama Department of Health and Sanitation? Oh, you’re on a four-year backlog? Never mind.”
