Slocumb is near Dothan, home of the National Peanut Festival, so several years ago, local artists painted over 40 peanuts and one of them had a home in Slocomb. Slocomb happens to be the home of the Tomato Festival...so, they combined a peanut, who loved tomatoes and Tomato Nut was born !!
He stands outside the bank and he use to look like this:
Then one day I noticed he was gone...where was the cute Tomato Nut ??
He then re-appeared but now his arms are outstretched and he has TWO baskets of tomatoes and a different shirt:
I also noticed the little plaque at his uh...feet...is gone. The bank did change names, it use to be Slocomb National Bank and now it is Friend Bank. I think he is cute - with one basket or with two !
