    When Cyn was asking about potential places to visit for day trips in North Georgia recently, mostly about gem mining, I had not yet discovered the wonders of this place. I had heard about it, though.

    Weird! And TWO great North Georgia locations! Evidently the goats are very safe, happy, and not on the menu.

    Anyway, I thought it was hysterical. Drove past the Helen version today and almost wrecked the car. Indeed, there were some very fat, happy goats on the roof. Must be all-ok with the animal rights folks, because these people have been all over area TV and they're still open.

    Anybody have weird, funny, spooky, etc. places in your areas? Places that you say about, "Wow-you should go check this out!" I love unique spots that aren't on the usual tourist list. Tell me yours!

    Mystery Spot here in California looks interesting. We'll have to take the kids there soon.

    Checkout the Roadside America website at http://www.roadsideamerica.com/. Plenty of weirdness for everyone, all listed by state.

    One of the recent articles (http://www.roadsideamerica.com/blog/roy-rogers-happy-sales/) is about the upcoming auction of items from the now-closed Roy Rogers/Dale Evans museum located in Branson, MO. Trigger, Buttermilk, and Bullet are among the items to be auctioned.
    The article mentions other famous horses, including Misty of Chincoteague:

    Aw, I loved Misty! I've been to Chincoteague Island, but you don't always get to see many horses....loved Marguerite Henry's books. Especially King of the Wind. I was one of those little horse fanatic girls living in the big city....
