Apple Valley Hillbilly Garden, KY








Apple Valley Hillbilly Garden & Toyland, 9351 US-68, Calvert City, KY
"Take a walk through some wacky punny folk art sculptures!"

WHAT do you consider ART? To me personally I think it is not an easy one word answer, art is really a personal thing ...what do you love? What makes you happy? What makes you smile? Art truly is within the eye of the beholder ...what you might or might not love??! Hope that make sense. I really appreciate the quirky-ness of the whole site ...to myself and the hubby we really enjoy the "off the wall" sort of moments in life. Please do be sure you are going when you have the time to listen and enjoy. The tour guide (Mr. Keith Holt, he didn't actually say his name, ever? SO we are guessing here??! After doing a bit of research on the google, we did visit during Oct 2019.) will chat you through it all ...so many of the punny jokes will take some time to sink ...unless you are the sort of PUNNY person who can catch on quickly!! Yes, I am saying PUNNY ... like funny with a "P". Punny Funny, this place is!! (In short he really plays on the pun of it all.)

What's a pun? "A joke exploiting the different possible meanings of a word or the fact that there are words which sound alike but have different meanings."  If you know Beth, you really know she doesn't like CLOWNS, but I can handle painted ones, well creative ones, I wouldn't want one in my room, they do creep me out. I am not sure what I thought of them as a younger aged kid ...but teenage into adult life I just have not been a fan. I blame that on Stephen King's movie (book) "It" ...scary!!

For a bit of advice, once you leave this art location, I know you will be hungry for a bite to eat, maybe a milk shake ....please head on over to: Bob's Drive-In Restaurant, 2429 Bridge St, Paducah, KY., Bob's Drive In is the oldest car-hop restaurant in Kentucky. Menu features American staples like burgers, fries, hotdogs and milkshakes and unique twists including Bob's Fiesta Burger. Bob's Drive In has proudly served Paducah for more than 60 years. Mon. - Sat. 10 AM - 9 PM. We were starving when we arrived, so glad they were pretty close, quick service, friendly folks and really really good food!! Thank you for stopping by!! Hope you are well today!! Take Care!!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( ;

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
