I stopped by the post office in East Nashville today to send Vol State my stuff that proves I am cootie free and my GED transcript. (I find it funny that they call it a “transcript.”) The Jere Baxter Station Post Office is like a throwback to about 1958. It’s a cute little post office, as far as post offices go. Most of the people I saw in there were older folks who have probably lived over there since God was a boy. (Ok, there was a Mexican sister in there with a dress on who has hairier legs than the Manchild. Trust me…that’s hairy)
There was one thing that took away from the quaintness and Bedford Falls-ness of this cute, neighborhood post office. The building is right next to the former home of Rick’s (Or is it Nick’s) Flicks. Rick (or Nick) did not deal in the business of Disney movies. No, Nick’s thing was more along the lines of “Snow White and the Seven Sailors.”
Nick/Rick may be gone from the neighborhood, however, this lovely reminder remains of what used to be…It blessed my heart.
Now, maybe I’m a little naive, but, is this perhaps an informative sign directing the girls where to do their thing on Gallatin Rd? Is it a dance move? Kinda like the Electric Slide? The Two-Step? Remember that song Tanya Tucker did about the “San Antonio Stroll?” Something like that, maybe? Anybody?
