Somthing to Show For It


So, since I’ve managed to obtain ful time employment, my blog entries are non-existant. Something about working infront of a computer all day, driving home, and wanting to spend time with my wife instead of an other computer.

So my Dad asked me a few weeks ago if we had any pictures of where we live, so he can see what North Carolina looks like. So here are some pics that my amazing wife took while on a sight seeing excersion with her Mom to see local senery.

Lake Norman Marrina

Mooresville is a lake side town. This is a shot of Lake Norman form one of the not-so-public docks.

Line of Docked Sail Boats

Yes, the Lake is big enough for sail boats.

Typical North Carolina Walking Path

Everywhere I go, I find trees. Not like where I grew up, but thick mini forests that are EVERYWHERE. This pic show just how thick.

Statue for the Fallen

Statue for the Fallen

One of the ironys of living in the South. Notice this statue for the fallen who gave their life for their state in durring the Civil War. Notice the Flag on the right, and the flag engraved on the base of the statue. And Notice the trees?

Old Jeff Gordan Car

Mooresville is the home of NASCAR. By that, I mean that many of the teams acutally test, build, and live, in Mooresville and the surrounding area. This is an old retired Jeff Gordan Car that is just sitting in the parking lot of one the race team shops. Just sitting there collecting dust! Becuase NASCAR is such a common element here that it’s no big deal to the locals. Again, Notice the trees?

Mooresville PD

Mooresville PD

So much a part of this place that Moorseville PD paints their cars like checkered flags, and sport the Town motto “Race City USA”. Are there trees in this picture too?

English Ivy

And my last pic I will post is a shot of, you guessed it, more trees. This one is different becuase it shows one of the biggest issues North Carolina has with plants. English Ivy is everywhere. This stuff grows over whole acers of trees, takes over tellophone pools and their wires, and is almost impossible to get rid of becuase it grows back so quickly.

So in summary, what does North Carolina look like? It’s green, wet, and full of NASCAR fans.
