last week, i went on a drive to one of my favorite places, hancock county, georgia. i passed this abandoned house and wasn't going to stop (because, you know, we stop at *so* many abandoned houses already!), but then i saw the smokehouse out back through a last glance in my rearview mirror and i knew i had to turn around. it is always a little sad to see houses with good bones like these falling to ruin. but, then again, that is part of their mystery and charm.
