Mid America Motorworks, Illinois

Mid America Motorworks - "My Garage Museum"
17082 N US Highway 45
Effingham, IL 62401-6764

So we were in Effingham, Illinois early June 2020 during the "mask wearing times" know how so many folks were taking "selfies" with their mask on ... NOT ME ...didn't realize that the hubby took this shot there I am with my mask on ...NOT PRETTY ... i don't like it one bit ... can't breathe ...feel i am like cousin to Darth Vader, LOL!! I feel so like my space is so tiny ... have to go to my "happy place". So frustrating ...but any who ... happier thoughts. I am not sure why there is a BMW parked at the garage? it was not open ...but the hubby took some pics, looked through the window and captured several pics as well it was fun moments or 2. 

I will tell you I know what they call this area "Effingham"? 'Cause that silly STOP LIGHT got us each and every time. LOL!! just kidding folks, but it sure was hilarious at the moment humor gets me every single time, HUMOR is the best. 

Thank you kindly for stopping by. Hope you are well today. Take Care. Beth ( ;

There a couple old gas stations here that have been restored. It seems odd that they are antiques because they are from my parents' time.

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. ) :
