Down on your Luck

I recently wrote about Trust and Luck, two small communities in western North Carolina. In the photos of the Pink J. Plemmons general store was this rocking chair. What, may I ask, is more hopeless than an rocking chair with one rocker missing? It sits in front of the closed store, advertising abandonment and decay. Pity. Both the rocker and the store have great character. Is there no one who can restore them and make a living off the tourists who come through the area? I would be happy to stop in.


  1. I'll mend and sit in the rocking chair if you repair and run the store!

  2. This is a sad picture - but a good picture.
