    Inside, anything having to do with bananas. (Nothing off-color).


    The famous Michael Jackson banana donated by Michael Jackson.


    Here's an award for the . . . well . . .


    For someone who wants a slightly different feel to their bridal photo.


    This little crocheted guy was a favorite of mine.


    This friendly gentleman gave me his card. Carl Speer, (GACP), Genuine Antique Christian Person. Been there, Done that, Can't Remember . . . Free Advice.


    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:
  2. ROTFL!!!! Now I've seen EVERYTHING!!!

    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:
