Rubbish Tuesday - Morning @ Happy's

click on photos to enlarge
Happy's is an old indoor flea market located in Roanoke...On a chilly March morning we went out to breakfast then stopped at Happy's for the very first time, come along!

I'm diggin' that old skool tile floor!

Remember trying to win radio contests with these old dial phones? Yeah, good luck with that!

I didn't have a 7-Up bike but I did have a bike similar to this with the old banana seat and sissy bar!

In the market for a squirrel (I think) pelt?

Your Halloween one stop shop!

Ah, but honestly, Happy's is pretty interesting and I guess there's something there for everyone. I personally buy the bulk incense they sell and not because I smoke pot which my mom always thought that people who burn incense only do it to cover up the pot smell lol...I just happen to love incense...and then...this happened...
We bought a drumset...Linking up with Rubbish Tuesday if you would like more info on Happy's, visit their website RIGHT HERE!

Gotta Dance

click on photos to enlarge

I was cleaning out my photo files and wanted to show you these from last month's Steppin' Out Fest in Blacksburg. This cute man was having a great time!

“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”

SkyWatch Friday & Willy Nilly Friday 5 Number 13

click on photo to enlarge
The boys had a football game on Monday in Salem at Spartan Field. It was a terrible game. We lost 35-0. If you live local you will already know why we lost, "it was Salem". Well at least we were blessed by THIS sky at the end of the game! Linking with SkyWatch Friday

I was reading some useless facts and thought they were pretty interesting so I'm gonna make them my Willy-Nilly post:

1) Johnny Appleseed planted apples so that people could use apple cider to make alcohol. (and here all this time I just thought he was a do-gooder, turns out he was just a lush!)

2) The most powerful earthquake to strike the United States occurred in 1811 in New Madrid, Missouri. The quake shook more than one million square miles, and was felt as far as 1,000 miles away. (I actually learned about this when we lived in Missouri. Pretty wild!)

3) The Bible, the world’s best-selling book, is also the world’s most shoplifted book. (well that's ironic)

4) What is called a “French kiss” in the English speaking world is known as an “English kiss” in France. (ok Frenchies, is this true?!)

5) In Baltimore USA it is illegal to wash or scrub a sink regardless of how dirty it is. (and now I don't think I will be eating out in Baltimore! ewww)

Ok, now it's your turn! Post 5 random things about ANYTHING and come back here and link up. Visit other Willy-Nilly'ers and have fun!

Have a wonderful weekend :)

Rubbish Tuesday - 1800's Farm House

click on photo to enlarge
This is an old 1800's farm house at The Blue Ridge Institute Farm Museum. We visited a couple of months ago and for some reason this escasped my blog so there are more pics to come this week! My pal over at Sunnybrook Farm knows quite a bit about this place so hopefully he'll fill us in as we go along! Linking with Roan's Rubbish Tuesday :)

Monday Mural - Macado's

Macado's. 120 Church Ave SW. Roanoke

Macado's is one of my favorite spots downtown. The cool murals painted on the inside make you feel like you are eating at a street side cafe in Cuba. Tres cool! For more on Macado's, visit their website HERE ...linking with Monday Mural
