Today (Saturday) DH and I took Charley along when we ran some errands in town. Our first stop wasn’t an errand though. It was the Linear Trail that snakes around BigUtown. It was such a beautiful autumn day. Perfect weather for walking a dog and hanging out together.
After the walk, we tried out the new local custard place. Delicious! Charley got a cup of refreshing cold water after we got done eating cheese fries and custard confections.
We rented Expelled from RedBox last night. Insightful, thought-provoking movie by Ben Stein. I’d recommend seeing it.
Enjoy the pictures!
We went on the Ghost Tour on post tonight. It’s a pretty chilly evening outside, so the hot cocoa stop about halfway through was appreciated. DH was bored, but I found the tour interesting. A bit of history along with many ghost stories. The fort has been around since the 1850’s, so there have been many deaths. In the late 1800’s there was a cholera epidemic that killed many people. During WWI there was a Spanish Flu pandemic that took many more lives. Add that to the usual deaths that happen and you get a place ripe for spirits and hauntings. Some of the people that told stories as part of the tour spoke from personal experience. Believe if you will. I personally believe that there is more going on in our world than we can see or hear.
It was good to come home for a cup of hot tea at the end of the night. And to take care of the infirmary duties around here. If we want a bit more scare, I guess we can watch Rt. 666 on the SciFi channel. I enjoy Halloween and this time of year.
The Lincoln Display has been up for a few weeks, but I finally got a picture of it. I still need to add some books. On the other side of the pillar where this one is located will be a display about the Lincoln-Douglas debates.
Next week is Banned Books Week. I just got this display up last night while I was working. Evenings are really a good time to do this sort of thing.
The weather was so nice this weekend that we sat outside on my brother and SIL’s patio (which is quite lovely btw.) Considering that it’s very humid and hot here in KS now, I’m glad that it was such a beautiful Sunday.
These are the few pictures I got before they made an announcement that if you didn’t have permission to take pictures (which I didn’t), you’d be thrown out of the market. And I could not have that happen! *laugh*
PS to the Dishpaw Raggers – The box is now enroute to MT. Yay!
I love the native stone buildings that you see throughout the Flint Hills. This schoolhouse is on Tuttle Creek Boulevard, which we usually drive to go into town.
…is a great used bookstore, The Dusty Bookshelf. It’s dangerous to go in there because I usually come out with a stack of books. But yesterday I was good and only bought an Edward Gorey postcard.
