Possum Grape, Arkansas
In all the years we have driven to Hot Springs, AR I have
always loved the name of this town. I know it's a horrible
photo but we were in last week's driving rains as we
drove back to the St Louis area. It was the best I could do
under the circumstances.
It appears that the residents couldn't decide on what to
call the town: Possum or Grape, so they just joined them
together. What a great address to have- Possum Grape!
It would make a great topic of conversation when
you meet a stranger, especially one from a large city.
We also drop the ball every time we travel to Hot Springs.
There is a junction in the road with one leading to
Success, Arkansas. It's not as if the sign isn't staring us
in the face. You would think we'd learn but we
never take that road to success.
Some day I would like to stop into these towns with
unusual names, take a few photos to remember them and
learn a little about the history. Then when we retire we'll have
to give Possum Grape some thought, or maybe we will finally
take that road to Success!
