Paul and Babe appear to be running from something...though just what remains a mystery. This was pretty creepy at night.

Babe and Paul are on a hillside beside Town & Country Supply overlooking Route 25 for all to see. Just a stone's throw from the Nitro exit of Interstate 64 headed toward Poca -- home of the Poca Dots!
