    Anyone contributing to the museum earns Banana Merits. Taking out my mail, I found inspiration in the middle of the road. Printed and framed, Carl said my photo will be welcome at the museum.

    Also, some firearms and other memorabilia dating back to the civil war, an old fashioned kitchen, and some farm gear outside make this worth a visit. More info at: http://www.bananaclub.com/

    I wonder how many times a day people "peel" out of there in fast cars.

    This store is just ripe for a franchise opportunity as well...
  17. I agree! :smile:
  18. It is intriging, just by the name of the place. We did have fun. Nice looking dog for your avatar.
  19. I'll keep my eyes "peeled" for that opportunity. If I hear of anything, I'll "slip" you a note.
  20. I always wondered what the top banana looked like..:Glasses:
