The closest "big" town (Charlotte notwithstanding) is Hicksville, which lies roughly 20 miles from here. All our snail mail, however, goes 8 miles south, to Vale. If you were to look this up on google maps, the geographic center is the US post office, right there on Reepsville Road. And why would one put the post office as the center of town? Because there is nothing else there. No, I'm not kidding. They have pictures there on Google. So the center of Vale really IS the middle of nowhere! Do I hear Banjos? Ouch.
Now that I am yet another year older (you knew I'd have to bring that up), it's time to sit and ponder, once again, where I am in my life. And it's official: I'm At The Middle Of Nowhere. Middle of Life in a Backwards state I can't quite escape. But I'll get there soon enough, don't you worry. You gots mighty purty teeth.
