I visited Juliette, Georgia last weekend, after the basketball game was over that my 8 year old grandson was playing in, Juliette was just 8 miles away. Many of you may remember the 1991 movie "Fried Green Tomatoes" written by Fannie Flagg, but what you may not know is that it was (or mostly) filmed in Georgia and it's only a short drive from where I live. It is one of my favorite movies. I visited that little town many times years ago but hadn't been lately until last weekend. Since we were that close hubby and I decided to see if it was still as busy as when we went before. Oh yes, it was booming.
The Whistle Stop Cafe was about to close so we didn't get to eat there this time, but we could see through the windows that it was full of people. I've eaten there several times but never tried the "Bar B Que".
While we were there a train came by. Remember "Buddy" got hit by the train at the beginning of the movie.
You don't find many towns these days that still look like this, as if they had never caught up with the times.
I took a few pictures inside the stores, of course the train came by when I was in the one with all the dishes, teacups and teapots. My hubby was ready to go then and I didn't go back inside but there WILL be another day. Loved the bird house camper.
Remember Ruth and Idgie!
I loved this bicycle outside the store, as if someone parked it there and left it, kind of sad.
Can you believe I only bought a jar of local honey. I've started using honey in my tea to cut back on sugar.
I do want to share my new teacup that I bought a few weeks ago. I tried to get a photo of the stamp on the back but it wouldn't come out clear. It is a Hammeroley and Company Bone China with Made in England stamped on the bottom. Love the handle. The flowers make me think of spring.
I had to try the honey with some Apple and Cinnamon Tea when I got home.
I do hope you enjoyed this trip back to Juliette and remembering the movie. Do stop by anytime and we'll talk about ole times and have a cup of tea.
HAVE A BLESSED DAY!
