Visiting Gram

Visiting Gram at Loving Residence

She is wheelchair bound now, but not immobile! We had to put her brakes on so she wouldn't wander off while we were visiting!

Hobgoblin

The girls and I went to "The Twilight Zone" performed at Hobgoblin music
by the Soapbox Players.
We got seats in the front row.

Which made it hard to get photos of the set....it was a black and white television.


There were two episodes....this one is "The Living Doll." This is at the
very end of the skit when the doll comes alive....the girls LOVED this!




Hobgoblin Music is housed in an old three story barn. The lower level is a shop where harps and dulcimers are made...the second level is a gorgeous store where one can purchase instuments and music and the third level is where performances are held.

In the massive delicious smelling cooler.

This is only one of three huge coolers.

Agate/Fossil hunting

With the flood waters receding, we have been finding all sorts of
agates, fossils, and petrified wood. This day we were at the swimming beach.
The water was all the way up to the tree in the foreground.




We forgot bread

A couple fossils

I love this rock!
