Puckett’s of Leiper’s Fork

When it comes to an American original, Puckett’s of Leiper’s Fork sets the standard. This is a combination restaurant, grocery, and music venue where you can have an authentic experience of the kind that is fading away. Here’s a look inside:

As you can see, plenty of tables. You order and collect your food at the counter. They have your southern favorites here, things like pulled pork, brisket, ribs, all slow-cooked to perfection, plus all the sides such as baked beans, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, biscuits, etc. In other words, show up hungry. Here’s a look at the pulled pork with two sides:

Darn that platter was tasty! Had to resist doubling down and getting another. Place is easy to find, parking on the side, and prices very reasonable. Enjoy every meal.

Helicopters, big and small

There’s been a bunch of helicopter activity at my local airport. In the photo below, you’ll see one which is a vintage bird capable of lifting some serious weight. The smaller one will carry only two people and does mostly training work.

It’s amazing what helicopters can do, from fire fighting and medical transport to heavy lift and corporate transport. They’re challenging machines to fly, requiring quite a bit of coordination. Here’s a look at the pilot’s window:

Stop by your local airport for an introductory flight, or just go for a ride. Either way, it’ll be a thrill like no other.

Very Good TV, podcast

I’m relatively new to podcast listening. However, I have found several that are worth the time, providing great material on various subjects of interest. Among my top three, Indiewire’s “Very Good TV” podcast is hosted by Liz Shannon Miller and Ben T. Travers. The pair has developed a great rapport as they share insight and critique of a wide range of television programs. We’re talking everything from “The Walking Dead” to “The Americans.” They know the ground they cover offering more than the usual multi-star review rating or thumbs up/thumbs down type of commentary. You’ll hear extended conversations about actors’ careers, director styles, even production decisions by companies small and large.

Here’s a link to their page on Indiewire.com:
