Cy Seymour Sees Seymour

I was honored to be the caretaker of the Cy Seymour card that is slowly floating around the blogosphere. I say slowly because I let it sit on my on my desk for a few days hoping that I could take Cy out for a tour. I finally took him out for a spin on the way to the post office.

First stop was Harrison Chilhowee Baptist Academy (The King's Academy). This is where my son, Edison, attends school. The school was founded in 1880. I was shooting the pictures with my BlackBerry and the sun was not cooperating.

This is looking at Huskey Field, where the TKA Lions play. The football team had their third winning season in a row. First time in school history. Edison played defensive line as a freshman. He didn't get much playing time, but the last game of the year he did manage a solo sack.

Here's the library in town. Seymour depends on the county for many services. Seymour is unincorporated. No police. Sheriff deputies, constables and State Highway Patrol.

We do have a volunteer Fire Department. Some good guys there. And ladies, too, I imagine.

This is one of the many churches in town. About 15 of them. There's about 125 them in the county. According to the 2000 census, there were about 8,850 residents in Seymour.

Turning around in their parking lot, now looking south, we can see the foothills of the Smoky Mountains.

My daughter, Caroline, was with me on this trip as well. She wanted me to take some pictures of her school. She attends Seymour Primary.

Then she wanted me to take more pictures of her school. Who am I to say no?

Cy made it to the post office and is now in the care of Sean, over at the wonderful Condition: Poor blog.

Sean, please take care of Cy. I don't want him to show up on that MTV Jersey Shore show. I mean it.


  1. hahaha this was a great post. I'm hoping that Cy makes all 50 states, obviously including a stop in Indiana with me!

  2. Man that's awesome! Glad you had such a great time with Cy.

  3. Did you take Cy to get a Slurpee at the Seymour 7-11? According to the back of his 1992 Studio card, his favorite flavor is Pina Colada.

  4. Beardy - We don't have a 7-11 in Seymour. Please see my footnote on the Inviation to an Interview post.
