Riding with the Hound - December 24, 2012

This will be a new series where I film some of my travels through Hickory. This was from Christmas Eve around 5pm. I had gone to check on 1859 Cafe, yes it's closed, and from there I headed to WalMart in Granite Falls to pick up a couple Spicy Italian subs to take over to my Grandmother's for my Grandmother, Mother, and self.

When I was a kid it was always a tradition for the family to get together and have snacks, soup and sandwiches on Christmas Eve. I at least wanted to pay some tribute to that tradition this year. Times are certainly changing and I certainly miss the good ole days. Most all of my family is now dead or moved away now, but I know that nobody cares to hear about that, so I won't digress about that anymore.

Hope you enjoy the ride and for you out-of-towners maybe you will learn how to get around town easier.

The quality was pretty good on this video, Thom, in spite of the bumpy ride and the rain. If you could point out things along the way and name the streets you were on, that would help newcomers.

During the recent referendum, I had wished I could see some of the places that were at issue, for example the two pools that were filled in and the neighborhoods they were in.

Thanks for your all you do.
