Sale Shop Till Lee Drops

We have a small shop not far from our home that every nook and cranny is filled to the brim with delightful seasonal things.
I, Sweet William The Scot, always have to wait at the door for Lee when she goes in.
We do not sell on Etsy but we do sell our specialty items here.
This year besides Lee's hand painted porcelain tree ornaments which customers order Lee sold these.
Little houses that shine.  Lee custom made a few to look like buyers homes.
Today feels more like Christmas it is cold and we have snow.
Christmas day was warm and we did yard work.
 We just thought we would show you all the ornaments and baubles that this specialty shop has to offer..
 All the gorgeous whatnots for the Christmas Holiday that are now 50% off.
The embellished glittery adornments. 
The sugary candy cookie tree. 
The old fashion flowery look.
This little shop is filled to the brim.

I Went To Podunk

'Where in the world is Podunk?' A correspondent asked that question of the editors of the Buffalo, New York, Daily National Pilot in 1846, then answered himself: "It is in the world, sir; and more than that, is a little world of itself.
Yep I, Sweet William The Scot, went to Podunk.
Lee drove us over this bridge, that is not a rail across the end but a guardrail to keep you from going straight down a hill once you are over.
Do you think America needs work on it's infrastructure??
We saw a lot of these.
Yep I sure prayed there was cell phone connection out here because most places seemed to be abandoned. Is it a fixer upper or a tear downer?? 
Wonder if the landlord would look the other way on rent for the people who are not receiving a paycheck during our government shutdown??  Maybe President Trump's Make America Great Again could slap some paint here. 
I got to see cows and horses.  Why I even got to smell a fresh cowpie or a meadow muffin. Neither words are appropriate.  Why Pies and Muffins look good and taste great.  I would not taste one of those things if I was starving!  They say burning cow dung repeals mosquitos, yep I can understand that.  This city dog was repulsed that a cow could do such a thing.  Why I did not even want to leave pee mail on it for another dog to read.
Well we finally got to where we thought it was and Lee was right!
Lee had found the grave of her great great grandfather from France.
(I think my nose is still smelling the cowpies in this picture or maybe it's not I see dead people but I smell dead people)

He left France when King Louis Phillippe was overthrown and with Louis Napoleon Bonaparte election to the Second Republic.  Oh heck it was a Revolution.
But being here fifteen years later America is in a Civil War where two of his sons fought.
Lee says the line in the OUTLANDER Books "We can't be on the wrong side of history again" applies here.  Leaving a war to come to a war CRAPS!  
Yep we were on Lee's genealogy trail.
Lee are we done yet!  How far from civilization are we? 
Oh that U.S. Geological Survey says for information write the Director Washington D.C. well you had better wait awhile because the Government is in shutdown.

PS ~` Lee is three times Daughters of the American Revolution, meaning her family was here when America was still a British Colony and the fourth side came before the Civil War being here over 183 years.

I Got A Christmas Present

I got a package from my dear friends Bentley & Pat and Winslow & Debbie.
Lookie the Scottie wrapping paper.  WooHoo! 
There was a lovely card wishing me all the joy of this lovely season.
 Why I got a Scottie reading a book Flag for my home.
Why I am a registered Reader Dog and the Flag depicts the work I do.
Yep I work.
Thanks for such a super great gift.
I got other cards.
Why Nessa sent this card
Two Scotties looking out a window.  Why I like to think that is Nessa and Me together.
Well I got paper cards from Amber & Max, Millie & Walter, Hazel & Greta and Lee's friend Maggie and my friend Harold my mail carrier ~ he calls me Sir William because I have my own post office box.  Then I had E cards from a whole lot of you.
Thank You!

I Voted ~ Did You?

I did not even get combed this morning. Lee put her furs in a messy bun and no makeup.
 Lee and I were out the door to VOTE.  The line was long and the wait time took forever but Lee hung in there.

End of Summer

Welcome to my porch this year.
 My big Begonia pot this year.
The rail box had colorful Lantana, two shades of Angelonia and  Ornamental Potato Vine.

 Just one of our many flower beds.
 Seems this was a season for multiple ears of corn on the same shank.
It's called the MESS Syndrome!
Some genetic backgrounds are more prone to this type of multiple ear development and that certain growing conditions encourage the MESS Syndrome with these hybrids.
2006 was the first rash of the odd ears reported in Indiana and Illinois.
I like the side corn ears because Lee lets me eat them.
They are the right size for me.

 What have you noticed odd/MESS happening with our goofy weather?

Oh I Wish

Look at the plates on this vehicle!

It's so hot you could cook a dog on the pavement here.


Why it's the Wienermobile!  I, Sweet William The Scot, smell hot dogs on the grill cooking.
I'm going inside.


Oh I wish I were an Oscar Mayer Weiner
That is what I would truly like to be
Cause if I were an Oscar Mayer Weiner
Everyone would be in love with me
Oh Everyone would be in love 
Everyone in Blogville would be in love with me.

Would you believe they would not give me a hot dog!  Lee got one but not me.  What is wrong with Oscar Mayer that they won't give a dog a free hot dog.  I stood in line like the rest of the people. I was a good boy why everyone petted me and shook my paw.

Well Lee learned sharing she gave me half of her hot dog.

No matter what you call them Surprise Lily, Magic Lily, Resurrection Lily or Naked Lady Lily we had hundreds of them this year bloom.
