Blogging from One Wednesday in Green Springs

Wednesday, July 15, 10:38 a.m.

I'm in Green Springs.

It is my turn in the rotation to do a "One Wednesday." Our monthly feature in its third and final year where we visit a community for a day and take pictures of anyone or anything we can find within the town limits.

I arrived around 9 a.m., a little late by my standards, but I had some obstacles this morning. First and foremost, rolling out of bed.

I've taken photos for about an hour and thought a live blog might be a good idea for the thousands of people who visit my blog each day.

I'm typing this from a picnic table next to Nana's Kitchen while enjoying a chicken quesadilla, trying not to spill any on the keyboard. So far I have seen a "Go Green" parade, the local supermarket and a quesadilla.

I will do another update in a couple hours, so check back.

 

3:51 p.m.

How time flies, I wanted to blog every couple hours from here, but I have been talking to and taking pictures of a lot of people today. And they just happened to arrest a suspect in the biggest news to come out of Green Springs in the past few years; the murder of Frank Rios Jr.

Since my last update I have talked to a carver that uses a chainsaw, a maintenance garage manager and Don Sours, a wealth of knowledge of Green Springs and everything going on in the small town.
