Peppersauce Alley On A Rainy Day

I finally gave in and went to my doctor with my malady.  It is improving. Doc decided it was likely chemical burns in the lungs from my not so safe method of cleaning Dad's shop. Unknown chemicals being swept warrant EXTREME protection. Bottom line:  I'm gonna live through this one.
It was a rainy day.  No complaints there.  It just limited my exploring and I got wet anyway.
The bridge to Peppersauce Alley or East Calico Rock, Arkansas
 The bridge I crossed whose creek runs into White River.
an old trestle over the same creek
I parked with plans but the rain changed my plans quickly.


funeral home
If you would like more details here is the historical link and facts.  Otherwise you will have to wait til I return for better photos.  It was nice to look around even through the rain.

all these photos have flipped me through a time warp into the years 1953 through 1959, this could be photos of KY, the houses, and the people in the photos here on the signs, all of the photos could have been taken in the part i lived in... when the sun comes out go get some shots in the sun. these came out really good in the rain

Glad to hear you are on the mend.
What a great place to visit, I enjoyed seeing all the old photos on the website, some of them haven't changed at all, which is nice.
Isn't it always the way to get rain exactly at the wrong time.

First and foremost: glad you went to the doctor and are going to live. Breathing issues are very serious. please be careful.

Very cool pictures and town. I love historical towns and their people. Bill tries to soak in what he can when he is areas like that. He goes through Arkansas continuously. His company is not too far from TexWis Girl.

Looks like a great place to investigate. Thanks for sharing it with us, Gail. :)

Peppersauce Alley is an interesting name. Hope you will tell us where it comes from. Chemical burns to the lungs sound scary. I hope they heal quickly and completely.

Mama Zen said...

Chemical burns? Yikes, Gail! Be careful!

This is serious business, girl. You are not immortal; only the teenagers who ride motorcycles are immortal. It is time to make stuff in a clean, breathable atmosphere.

What a place! Reminds me of Fried Green Tomatoes.

Dear Gail & Tractor man, hope you had a lovely Thanks giving day! Best Wishes xx

That certainly is a bleak, gloomy funeral home!

I'm glad you're feeling better...slowly but surely. :)

Chemical burns! That is pretty nasty. I'm glad you're going to be okay. What the heck would we do without you in the blogging world? It would be pretty damn boring :)

It looks like a great place to explore even in the rain.

I am glad you went to the Doctor, hope you grabbed some of those face masks for those that are coughing...you can reuse them at home when doing dusty jobs like sanding. I suppose it will take time to heal slow but sure. That old town looks like great fun!
Happy Thanksgiving! :)

Good to hear you went back to the doctor, and you're doing a bit better. I love taking field trips to local area's, there's so much history inside these buildings.
