Ransone's Drug Store

Ransone's Drug Store
19771 Main St, Buchanan, VA 24066

first stop a day at the end of June 2020: "Big Otter Mill, Bedford, VA", second stop: "Appalachian Trail, Big Island, VA" and the third stop: "Buchanan Swinging Bridge". This spot was the final post of that day. Actually they were seen in a totally different order in real life (drive time, you know how those wheels roll) ...I did arrange them differently here on the blog. 

They sure don't make these kind of drug stores any more, now do they??!! Such character!! We got a turkey sandwich and a chicken quesadilla, 2 drinks ... and took those 2 go. I was not there, I waited in the car ...I will say do what makes you comfortable, I keep saying that to my friends and family, it is just such an odd time, work with what you feel is right and do what you can ...I don't feel always comfortable doing public situations during these "mask wearing time", so I don't always go (if I get a feeling i just chill out) ... thanks 2 the hubby he was my savior there. I enjoyed seeing these shots that the hubby took, so awesome 2 see. ENJOY!! 

Thanks, for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Beth ( ;

Sounds like a nice day and outing. I loved these old time drug stores that had the food counters and booths. We had one in my neighborhood when I was young. It was a hang out spot. I do not mind wearing the mask, I leave it off while hiking. Enjoy your day! Wishing you a happy new week!

That is too cool. I vaguely remember a drug store from my early childhood and they had an ice-cream bar.I don';t need to tell you that I enjoyed going there, as I usually got some sort of treat.

Oh, we wound up there back in 2011. It looks like drug stores did when I was a child. Nostagia!

we can still find "replicas" in this area, but not the real thing. we have one we visit, it is just a restaurant, but it looks similar to the restaurant part of this one!!

i know how you feel about all of the changes. i think masks are 100% necessary, and i always wear one if i am out in public. but if the hubs can take over, i let him and i stay in the car!!

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. ) :
i wonder who will take over the mill? he was having issues with the folks who wanted t…

We were so happy to find the restaurant ...some times we just head thinking we want to find the 1st great looking place to try out. & thankfully this was a great pick, check out these views we got to see while eating this fabulous meal.

I had halibut, 3. hubby had elk, and 4. was the pyramid chocolate yummyness. it was delicious!! Are you now hungry? Beth ( :
