Nashville, Indiana

Yesterday was another hospital day, but turned out to be a short one because Uncle Boone didn’t need blood again.  It’s really getting hard to tell when he does need it.  But we will except these small gifts and be thankful for them.

Since we had some time on our hands, Donnie and I went over to Camping World to get a new motor for the fan in our furnace.  We had a new one put in last year, but it has made a horrible noise ever since they replaced it.  Donnie watched him last year, so will do this one on his own.  The difference being it cost us $400.00 last time, and only $72.00 this go around.  Quite the difference wouldn’t you say?

Another one of our sisters, Dotty called yesterday to  talk about Uncle Boone and everything else going on in our family.  I wish they were closer, but they are clear down in Paducah, Kentucky, which is about 6 or 7 hours from here.  She says her new grandson, Kipton, is doing just fine.  Glad to hear that cause his Mommy had lots of problems while carrying him.

Uncle Boone, Charlotte, Donnie and myself all drove down to Brown County this morning.  We went to a small little place called Nashville, Indiana.  It has all kinds of little shops and touristy things to do.  Since Uncle Boone couldn’t walk around, Charlotte and I just visited a few shops and then returned to the truck and drove around the county some more.

Charlotte knew of this quaint little place called, Story, Indiana, so we drove out there and back.  It was a beautiful drive, but I will let my pictures tell the rest of the story.
Some of the pretty mums we saw today.

Out side some of the many shops in this small town.

Beautiful gourds everywhere we looked.

Inside one of the shops.  I loved the copper-wire trees.

Of course you have to by the obligatory shirts. These are made from hemp, so if worse comes to worse, we can cut them up and smoke them… :)

Inside another shop.
Quilts, beautiful quilts everywhere.

This is the tiny place called Story, Indiana.

This is a picture of some of my daughter’s creations, as requested.

That’s it for today.  It was a fun day, but a tiring one.  We did see a few pretty leaves, but since I drive, I couldn’t get any pictures of them.  Hope you enjoy what I did post.  Thanks to Rick and Sue for all your help with the collages.  I think I have it now.  Catch you all later…  :)

It looks like you have mastered collages, Pidge. Good job on the pictures. Story, Indiana looks like a fun place to visit.

I would like to use your picture of the shirt with the bicycle on it. May I have your permission?

Glad you were able to get out and enjoy Nashville. It's a neat little town. Somewhere around there is where the Covered Bridge festival is held each year.

pidge said...

Thanks for the comment Margie. Yes, the covered bridge festival was last week end at Rockville, Indiana. I wanted to go, but had company from home, so couldn't.

Rick and Paulette said...

Looks like a great little place for browsing around for an afternoon. Good job on the collages too.
