So last night, I racked my brains a bit to figure out what I was going to do today. It's too quiet here in the Technicolor Trailer when Dent isn't around. By this morning, I wasn't any closer to figuring it out, so I did what I usually do when I'm stuck on what to do: go somewhere I've been before, but go a different route than normal. It was time to hop in the Kia and go for a spin.
About 30 minutes later, I found myself approaching Lincolnton. And found the road blocked by large neon orange barriers.
"What is this," I thought, "Another Apple Festival?" Not exactly, but I was kinda close. After detouring completely around downtown Lincolnton (which is no where as grand as it sounds), I pulled into a parking lot at the old Rite-Aid (long since closed), and began walking back towards the square. I began seeing lots of motorcycles, and then I spotted the sign outside the Lincolnton Police Department: "Hog Happenin' June 1-2".
A little something they do every year, it's a festival for both motorcycles and BBQ..... and this....
|For the go on the go, I guess.|
I stayed maybe 45 minutes; I'm not all that interested in motorcycles that much, so after that it was time to do the other thing I do when I'm bored: find someplace I *haven't* been before. I settled on a local park, just south of Newton. Out came the camera again.

I also found this. Perhaps some wood-god uses it as a throne, I don't know. I can't be the only person who sees a chair when I look at this. What do you folks think??
