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.

Thanks for being a friend

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.
