Shadrak, Meshak, and Abendigo's Truck

We don't really wax too Biblical around here, but we do draw some thoughts there from now and again. Here we are in Berkeley County, SC, a historic community with a rich political history, but, all things considered, a little bit this side of Biblical. There may be a little more of knowledge IN the Biblical sense than, say, knowledge OF the Bible around these parts, but who the heck is perfect. With all the glass that surrounds us, we're not about to throw any stones even if it is Safety Glass.

We were puzzled as to where all the glass went from this little truck we chose to visit. Typically we like to place ourselves near objects of beauty, history or wonder in our journal. It is the third attribute which caused us to draw near " Dr. Rage ".

While this configuration may do well for wading through the sodden streets of the Charleston peninsula, it seems less effective for shopping, commuting or delivering rural mail. Certainly it could be considered and in some quarters IS something of an idol. If any readers remember the fate of Shadrak, Meshak, and Abendigo, this is likely the means by which they were dispatched.

You're gonna need some more bandwidth if this keeps up. Congrats on a great site. You are serving as further proof that even lowcountry boys and girls can contribute to the blog universe.

great site...two small comments: they are monks at Mepkin, not Moncks...Monck was an early settler at the "corner"...

for unreadable historical markers on your journeys, get a copy of the manual of SC historical markers from a book store--don't even have to leave the car to find out what it says!
