Is this a great old clock or what?!

Saw this baby at Peaks of Otter on Sunday and right away thought..."I have to get a picture for Tom"!

Moonshine has some deep roots here in the Virginia Appalachians.

Are you familiar with Franklin County, aka: The Moonshine Capital of the World? HERE is some interesting reading of the heritage of moonshine.

A Jumpin' Good Time

Be prepared...I am getting ready to bombard you with more pictures of jumping dogs! I love dogs, what can I say?!
These 2 happy dogs were putting on a show at the Go Outside Festival last weekend...
This is my own air dog Ozzy...he loves to swim...sometimes it is difficult to keep him out of the pool!

Scenes from downtown Roanoke:

On Sunday after we were finished at the Go Outside Festival, we headed downtown for a late lunch at Texas we've eaten here quite a few times and I've shown you a few pictures but I have never taken a picture from across the street so I told my guys to stand in front while I snap a photo...
I zoomed in to get a closer look...and then when I got home and downloaded my pics I realized that I cut off the top of the building...the cute little curvy part that gives it that extra character and says "Texas Tavern" how did I miss that?...anyway...

I was trying to go for a Beatles Abbey Road thing here but my people don't cooperate...


Isn't Roanoke a beautiful city? I just love downtown!

That's my 5 this week...I hope you will join in! Post 5 randoms, link back and visit others! Have a great weekend!

This week has been a doozy...Christian's car broke down and while it was in the shop for a few days, I played Uber driver getting him to and from school and I just didn't have my normal morning that he has his car back I shall have my regular schedule again...knock wood!

On of our favorite things to watch at the Go Outside Festival is the dog jumping contest!

Can these railings count as a fence today? Linking with Tex's Good Fences

All You Need Is Love

On Sunday we went to the Go Outside Festival and I was so excited to see not one, but two LOVE signs! I've shown you others we've found HERE HERE & HERE but I feel like I've seen more than that...maybe my search didn't pull them all up...anyways, the Go Fest has really grown since the first one we attended way back in can see that HERE...then there were only a few booths set up and now there's soooo much to do and see...we've been every year except missing probably the 2nd year since the first was nothing to write home about ;)

The Patrick Henry

click on photo to enlarge
Heading downtown you can see the old Patrick Henry Hotel straight ahead...built in 1925 it has now been converted to apartments. Their website HERE tells nothing of the old hotel's me that is what I am always most interested in first. At least there's Wikipedia for info! I have shown you the Patrick Henry in the past HERE
