My 61st wedding anniversary breakfast!! It was HUGE and DELICIOUS!!  Of course I couldn't eat all of it, but I gave it a run for it's money!! Maurice's (small compared to mine) plate of pancakes is in the background!

And of course he went walking while I worked on my handwork!

Fishermen were busy cleaning their fish after a 7:00 a.m. start!

This is the Inn we stay at right up the hill from the campground. It was foggy when I took this picture.

They have Bluegrass Music on Friday nights and Church on Sunday A.M. in the park. But part of the time it's in the Lobby of the Inn

So we lucked out and got to watch and listen in the a/c lobby. I couldn't get a good picture because of the lighting. there were 4 main musicians with several guest performers and a couple of children.  The show was 2 hours long with a good turnout of locals and campers.

I've never noticed these huge crows on the roof before, but the receptionist said it's a common sight. Sometimes they cover the top of the water tower too she said.

We come across a "RePurposed Fair" Sat in Monett, Mo. Really had some neat things! I thought it a clever idea!
They had furniture, clothing, pottery, plants,jewelry and of course food! Even had stuff for fairy houses!

This  top was my purchase! I'm going to use it as a pattern to make me some more for fall and winter!

I wore it Sunday for church.

Always enjoy the interestingly decorated shops!
I got this neat lampshade from Susie Childs at her shop "Tullies" in Booneville, Mo recently. Just love the way it looks in my Art Studio!

Close Up.

This little apple chalk plaque reminded me of  what use to hang in peoples kitchens so of course I needed it!

A cute little hanging planter that will go somewhere?

We stopped at this old cafe in Nevada, Mo. for breakfast at the start of our trip' Food was good'
Such a cute old  DX Gas Station in Cassville, Mo. Hope you are having some get-away time too before winter sets in!  My second blog is: www.preciouscottage, hope you'll visit it too!

Oh what Fun you were having on that milestone of an Anniversary! I see Maurice behaved himself at Breakfast and you my Friend are like me, challenging yourself to an epic Feast on a Special Day! *Winks* I Love the ensemble it looks so pretty on you. And those Crows, scenes from Alfred Hitchcock's 'The Birds' comes to mind and always makes me Smile when I see a Natural Flock grouping together! Is Nature conspiring to get 'Even' with Humanity for all we've done to destroy their Beautiful Natural Environment?! *Winks* Get Away Time is always something I fully appreciate too... only for us in the Desert it is reversed and we have to typically do it before a long Hot Summer.
