Things learned while traveling

Fort Payne, Alabama, is the sock capital of the world.

There's more than one way to spell Cajun.

I always thought chinken was that stuff that got jammed between the logs on pioneers' cabins in an attempt to keep out cold drafts, but apparently it's not actually spanish moss and mud after all if it's edible enough to serve with slaw and fries.


  1. how does one become the sock capital?...or do i want to know?

  2. A city becomes the sock capital by having multiple hosiery mills that crank out zillions of socks annually. Supposedly one out of every 7 pairs of socks on the planet comes from the Fort Payne area.


My space, my rules: play nice and keep it on topic.
