Icicle, anyone?

My hubby was having a little too much fun with an extra-large icicle the other day....

Got an itch, there, honey??

Reminds me of corn on the cob...

Just "horsing" around! ;)

Book Store Mania

This past weekend, my husband and I went on a road 18 hour road trip to North Carolina for a good friend's wedding. On our way we picked up two college buddies, and met up with a third once we arrived. It was wonderful to get in touch with old friends...and to have some of our own adventures!!

One of these adventures occurred directly after the wedding. On our way to the camp where we were staying, we saw a sign that said "BOOK STORE -- Home of 200,000 books!" Hm. That piqued our curiosity, and since we had two Elementary Education majors, and three lovers of books, we decided to stop in. The turn led us down a small windy road, during which we anxiously scanned the scenery searching for a large building, large enough to hold 200,000 books.

We should have remembered that we were in North Carolina -- home of all things hick.

We finally saw our destination -- a smallish building, no larger than a typical convenience store. So we got out and made our way into the building. And holy smokes....who'd have thought it would be arranged like this??
These are two of our friends, peering out from around the TOWERS of books.
They were everywhere!!

As you might have guessed, my hubby was in Book Heaven...

This was the "Religion" aisle

And I believe she was in the Classics section...

See how tight the squeeze was??

The most incredible part of the whole thing was that this lady actually seemed to know where books were! There were a few signs identifying different genres of literature, but for the most part, you had to ask her for guidance.

And speaking of signs....when we saw the sign below, we began to wonder if the "book lady" was a little off her rocker...
When we finally decided to leave, my hubby and I noticed this interesting looking garden sculpture next door. Perhaps it's where the "book lady" lives? ...and what IS it, anyway?? It kind of freaked us all out, and only my dear friend Elaine had enough guts to sneak up to it and snap a picture.

So it can haunt us in our sleep.

Anywho, feel free to offer suggestions as to what you think it actually far I think it's the head of Elvis glued to the body of a cherub. Any other takers??

Handsome, ain't he?
