Florida trip: Town names
As I was checking the map about the name and location of Wolf Lake (which turns out to be in southern Kentucky, not northern Tennessee), I was amused to discover that I apparently drove right through the town of Phil, KY without noticing it.

But that's nowhere near as amusing as the best town name I encountered on the trip.  A few miles north of Chattanooga on US 127, there's a town with a name I didn't believe was for real until I'd seen several different signs confirming that I'd really seen that.  I couldn't make up a name this good.

So here's to Soddy Daisy, Tennessee. I hope you're not offended at my amusement.

Actually, it's Soddy-Daisy, two towns that incorporated together back in the 1960's.

And, as you can see, they have a web site, which explains all, including the hyphenated name.

I don't recall seeing any hyphens on the highway signs, but I can't say for sure. Now that you mention it, I do find one on the map.

Yup it's hyphenated.........
