Close Up's from the Bily Clock Museum

more from the Bily Clock Museum, did you miss my first blog post "see here". Just look that that work, can you believe that is real, it is just mind numbing to me. 2nd picture is my fave of all these clocks, i love transportation and found it really cool all those details. 3rd picture is the clock Henry Ford want to pay 1 million dollars (this would have been in the 30's, depression era ... amazing that folks even had a million dollars way back then) to have in his museum. & did u know the Smithsonian Museum has asked to have these clocks in their museum, but the Bily Bros. always wanted their works of art to stay in Spillville, Iowa. I sure hope folks will go there to see them, so amazing. Some parts move, dance, sing, have music. We had a camping friend named "Iowa Dave" and he recommended us to go. So fun!! I really enjoyed it. Have a great day. Thank you for stopping by. Take Care, Beth ( ;

I would love to know how long it took to make each one....and I wonder if just one person worked on them?
Jenn Jilks said…
They are amazing, I agree.
Too many, now, have too many millions, while we cannot even give a working hourly wage for good, honest workers. It is awful.

Hey, God it's me Beth (he's showing off you know, I think he does that 'cause he know I have my camera, was that not nice of him? so cool!!) ...I'm 40 any time you wanna slap, ((I know you don't believe in violence, but sometimes it is needed when we are completely not listening or just missing the point??!)) me across the face and tell me what the heck to do, I am ready??!

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over was a real COLD adventure but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :

So many bikes, so many unique ones to see and just drool over. Are you a bike fan? If you can remember your childhood, what was the must have bike of that year, I bet it is here in mint condition. So fun!! Harley Davidson made bikes, not just Harleys??! Who knew? So many creators, just so so much history. Are you a history buff, I don't remember all these dates, maybe you could or can? Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care!!! Beth ( ;
