day trippin'

as i took country roads back home yesterday, i drove into the resort town of lake geneva...i was talking to my sis looney on my cell when i said to her, what's going on over here? well, i just happened onto the town's oktoberfest! how serendipitous! naturally, my sis was like, stop & check it out & take lots of pictures please! i have never been to this town, even though i live about an hour or so west of here... so i parked the jeep & checked it out>>>it's a cutsey little touristy town & i imagine in the summer this place must be jammed pack with tourists! i walked around, tho didn't buy anything, just soaked it all in...they were just setting up when i happened by... i did go up to the creative elements shop>>>cannot resist perusing stationary/paperie stores! i'll have to remember to head back there to get some of their speciality papers... of course, what's cheeseland without its cheese?! nice samplings at this little local shop...didn't catch the name as i was far too busy nibbling on all those cheese samples! of course, i had to refrain & not hog up all the cheese bites! there was this apple-bacon concoction that was actually quite good...have to remember to come back to this place when i am not so anxious to get home...maybe i will take my mom & sisters here when they come to visit next... the next town over, delavan, has this fab antique mall which i have to say, i could not just drive idly by! i know i had told joe i was an hour away, but i simply could not drive away from there! so a quick stop! i love the prices here (no 4+-digit pricing going on here, no siree bob!)...i picked up some vintage song books, buttons & postcards... & after a morning of adventure, i finally made it back home to joe & the kitties>>>these are the withering cornfields (see annie & brad>>>there's all this kind of stuff by me!) as you approach our humble abode...yep, i'm definitely not in maine or chicago anymore...but you know what? it's good to finally come home to my joe!

    I LOVE your sense of adventure. Rarely would I stop just because I saw something cool. and with the kiddies...no way!

    I am going to make an effort to be more aventurous next road trip!

    :)
    Glad you made it home safe and sound!
