    Certainly a beautiful area. And if I remember correctly, there's a furniture shop on every corner.

    And maybe you might get to meet Hickory Crawdads manager Gary Green.

    Except on the corners where there's a Bojangles.

    Understaffed, though. I know a guy who interviewed for a job here some time last year. They only had Hobbs and the designer, who was an ASE. Not sure if they ever filled that spot, because the job was posted four times in a nine-month period.

    It is pretty there. There's not much to do, but it's reasonably close to Charlotte.

    It's less than an hour to the NC ski resorts and the NC mountains, some of the most beautiful country this side of Heaven.

    But the Bojangles on every other corner is a definite plus. I'm craving a Bo-berry biscuit right now.

    There's more to do there now than there was 10 years ago. Or at least, there's access to decent stores and stuff. Barnes and Noble has a store there now. And the outdoor activities are plentiful in westnern nc.

    There are worse places to live by far. I know the SE and he's a good guy. But they are understaffed and the pay is low.

    Hickory is a cool little town, and only an hour from Charlotte. Good country people, as Flannery O'Connor would say. Except none of them will pretend to be slow, seduce you and then steal your leg. At least in my experience.
