This shop had some great old folk art and upstairs there were quite a few old hooked rugs. Some of them were in pretty bad shape, but I'll bet someone could restore them.
We stayed at a bed and breakfast called The Veranda Inn. I Would Not recommend it to anyone. It is a beautiful place.........
but... they hadn't dusted the room, (furniture, wood floors, etc) in a while. Here's my morning greeting from hubby.
Saturday morning I heard my husband talking to one of the guys that own the place and I asked him what they were talking about. He said he was tellling us where a good place for breakfast was!!! This is a bed and breakfast!! Friday evening I went downstairs looking for some ice. The guy said the ice machine is broken and I just haven't felt like going to get any!
Then take a look at this!!! See the ghost above the bed? I got a killer migraine after sleeping there for one night. We got our stuff and left at about 9:00 Saturday morning. We really have no idea what the white spot above my head is. Weird.....Ooohhh......
We had dinner at Shawbee's Big Dog Saloon. After we ate we had a few beers and played pool with the locals. I beat the first guy I played and then hubby beat the next!! They asked if we came to town to hustle them?!?. Neither of us have played pool in a year. It was karioke night too. One poor girl was sooo bad. Every time I was making a shot at the pool table she would hit a high note and I would have to wait to shoot!! She was having a great time though. That's what it's all about.
And finally here are some shots of the antique cars in line for the parade. It winds all through the town up and down the narrow winding streets. Kids line the streets waiting for candy to be thrown to them by the passengers. (That was my job when I was with my parents)
A 1958 Chevy. Aren't they cool?
And then finally.... here are my two favorite cars that were there.
OK...OK...I'll shut up!!! It's almost midnight. I have to get up early tomorrow. I start a class at St. Johns hospital on how to manage your life and health with fibromyalgia. It's a six week class intended to help us with coping skills. Wish me luck!
