The top picture is of Spillville, Iowa way back when. Cool to see what towns looked like back in the day. 2nd shot is the The Bily Brothers, they were amazing, such genius!!! My grandfather Pop-Pop made several grandfather clocks and other wooden (hand craved items) items throughout his lifetime, so I know the love, time, energy it takes to be handy like this... I'll admit it brought me to tears and I was pretty much speechless. How do explain art ...it is really something you just have to feel, I never understood that in art class ...art is art, if you feel it is art. You know??! I understand sort of why they men didn't want to sell their work, but can you imagine what their work would have sold for ...it is just priceless!!! Some parts move, dance, sing, have music. I will be sharing more next 2 weeks, please be sure to check in for that. I got several close-up's. Thanks for stopping by. Beth ( ;

My grandfather used to collect clocks. I have five of them and will probably end up selling them. I love old clocks. And their chimes..Hope you’re having a good weekend.

A lot of work has gone into creating these masterpieces.

Interesting. Old clocks are so much more artful than the digital ones.

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 ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun 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 ( ;
