Pumpkins at Pangles
Fall is here. It arrived with the
rustling of crisp, golden leaves along the
gravel road to my door. But fall officially arrived
in Robbinsville with festive
decorations and brilliant orange pumpkins
displayed at Pangle's. It's a produce stand
to some but the heart of a small town can be discovered
through Pangle's Produce. To me, the
primary appeal about a small town is the interaction
between people. The proprietor at Pangle's
has a smile as big and genuine
as Ann Richards' from Texas. And like Ann
Richards, Mrs.Pangle is a one woman ambassador
for everything that is great about America.
And believe me, like other locals that knew the secret
before me, I am now hooked on that smile!
A gracious greeting, a "thank
you", "you're welcome", may
be small things but they are truly precious things
and beyond value. Small town ways and big
courtesies are what compel me here.
The next time you come into Robbinsville
on US 129 from Murphy look to your right at the first
red light and you will see Pangle's Produce. With it's
worn, wooden bins full of bright,
orange pumpkins and multi colored mums,
it is the epitome of small town America and
the colors of fall.
Long range mountain views over the
Snowbird Mountains await you
in High Splendor from this parcel of over 2 acres....
restricted land in an excellent location close to Robbinsville.
Area has a true country feel as you drive by rolled hay bales in
pastures & barns ....
Opportunity! Yeah, I know, that
sounds corny and overused BUT IN THIS CASE it happens to be
TRUE. Where else can you get 6000
sq. ft. of 9 bedrooms and 9 1/2 baths
on almost 3 acres with a private
dock on the most beautiful Lake in the
U.S., much less the southeast! It's here - on Lake
Santeetlah, in the heart of the Smoky Mountains......
