I have this little wooden man action figure that was given to me by my editor and fellow author, Lynn Koolish. (Thanks, Lynn!) Little Man is not really an action figure - he's a drawing tool and he has been an interesting addition to my desk.
I decided to take Little Man with me on my trip to Pigeon Forge, thinking that it would be fun to include him in some photographs.
Here he is perched on the Skylink sign at DFW. Skylink is the people mover at the airport.
When I got to the airport in Knoxville I began to realize that I was going to be seeing a lot of bears. This carved mama bear (and her cub) greet you as you go toward security. While Smokey Bear is the mascot of the entire US Forest Service, I'm guessing that he is especially loved by those in the Smoky Mountains.
