We heard of a large Antique show being held at the Virginia Beach Convention Center so we decided to check it out as well. It was really nice but I didn't buy a thing. I think I was so overwhelmed I couldn't decide what to buy. It was fun just seeing some really old and unusual things. After the show we headed back to Williamsburg for a quite dinner and to get some rest for the long trip home on Sunday.
I will be adding some new items to the website later this evening. I hope you can stop by and check them out. Back to work for me. Take care!

We finished off the long day walking in Williamsburg by going over into New Town and watching a movie. We watched Role Models. Very funny movie but the language was a little too harsh. I'd rather seen Appaloosa but unfortunately it wasn't playing. Saturday we head out for the Virginia Beach & Chesapeake Bay. I'll have some pics from there for you tomorrow. Until then, take care!

After we left the festival we stopped for pizza (my fav) and headed home. We had a wonderful day with beautiful weather and a safe trip home. It was a perfect autumn day in Kentucky. I hope we have many more to share. Thank you all so much! Cyndi

Silver Threads from a Golden Eagle
Sitting on the front porch combing her long silver hair,
Is a memory of Granny I would like to share.
Many, many times I watched her as she gently combed,
The long silver hairs of her head.
I quietly watched without a word said.
Few loosed hairs would fall to the porch floor,
Carried off by the wind to return no more.
Times past and Granny still combed.
Many hairs now fell and thinness shown.
Years of time had weathered her long brittle hair,
And the side effects of kemo was all to unfair.
There came a time when Granny could no longer be seen,
Cancer had took her so wicked and mean.
It came and broke her and took her away,
It was a dreadfully sad, sad day.
Not long after Granny had passed,
A tiny little nest was found at last.
Hanging in a flower basket just above her chair,
A tiny little bird had found Granny’s long lost hair.
She molded the perfect soft warm bed,
Using the most precious long silver thread.
The little bird left us a true gift from above,
A symbol of Granny’s strength, wisdom and love.
A gift so rare it couldn’t be bought with silver nor gold,
A gift so precious it could never be sold.
Granny left behind so much more than her long silver hair,
She left us with a lifetime of memories to share.
Memories filled with love that is all too rare.
I often wonder if the little bird knew, that her bed was bound with
Silver threads from a Golden Eagle!
In Loving Memory of Granny: Maggie Gullett
Until next time, God Bless.

beautiful day! Autumn is surely here in Eastern Kentucky....I got out the camera and took some great pics. This one is one of my favorites. I bought this old chair today at an antique shop on the way to the vet's office for $15!
Here is a pic of "Chance". My little red bull that I am raising on a bottle. He was very small and weak when we bought him. He had been took from his mother, run through an auction and it took a toll on his health. When we found him, he could barely stand. He had scours and was in need of some TLC fast. Hubby and I knew it would be a task to care for him but we couldn't bare to leave him in the conditions he was in. So we paid for him and brought him home. I nursed him day and night and we thought we would surely lose him at one point but by some "Chance" he pulled through and is doing great now. It was by chance that we found him and brought him home. He needed a "Chance" to live so we named him Chance. Hope you like this pic.
I have one more photo to share with you today.
Ten Ducks in a Row!
Well thanks for letting me share my day with you! Until next time,
