AND...as every year -
..the Wilson Volunteer Firemen's Chicken Fry.
The sign instructs POLITICAL CAMPAIGNING IS NOT ALLOWED. HAVE A GREAT TIME INSTEAD.
And as you can see, bringing your horse to the picnic is not a good idea either.
It is not possible to take a picture of the line for food. It is too long, snakes around and doubles back. All in all an estimated 4,000 people had their hands stamped, downed the chicken, potatoes, salad, rolls, homemade deserts between 12 and 3 pm this past Sunday. This indicates that we must have 4000 people living around here. Since this is a tad hard to believe I am thinking the number must be inflated by what is, on occasion, disdainfully spoken of as "summer people". No matter, it is a fine, fine country picnic in the real spirit of Jackson. I do love it.
