Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

Since cooler weather has arrived in Appalachia-the girls have been enjoying one of their favorite pastimes-gomming in the mud.


All you need is-water, dirt, willing hands, and an imagination. Just look at some of their creations-


-a flower mud pate with leaf garnish,


mud salad served with stacked mud balls and a side of mashed mud,


and lastly-my personal favorite- mud pudding served in a mushroom cap.


Usually when I make pudding-I love to lick the bowl. But I think I'll pass on this one.

Making mud pies and using flora for fake salads was something I enjoyed as a kid. Sometimes the girls will make up a whole meal and ask me and The Deer Hunter to come as their special guests. It always amazes me-they put so much effort into the creations-just for us to throw them over our shoulders as we pretend to eat them.

Hope you enjoyed the gomming-you can at least be glad it didn't take place at your house right?
