On our drive through Mississippi Friday John notice one interesting road sign, and I another. As we passed the town of Scooba I read the town's welcoming sign which noted that it is the home of the world champion turkey caller. Who would have thought there was such world prize? What other country calls their turkeys? Further on down the road John read : "trucks turning, watch for long logs". Up to that point we had not seen logging trucks, and it seemed to be a strange sign. We later learned that the Tupelo gum tree is used for construction and, as those trees grow in the area of the city, the city was named after them.
