Scary Skelly from Van Camp House

This skelly guy greeted us as we were entering The Van Camp House in Port Sanilac for organic turkey dinner this week. Good thing that Chef Andy Fabians's food does wonder for the soul -- even puts scary thoughts at bay.

Skelly has a plastic head. Rest of him/her/she/he/it is wood. Very clever. Very spookalicious!

Two Grandpas

Out of the mouths of babes. . .come great quotes! Here's a photo of Ed with Bill Heffernan at Bill and Judy's farm near Columbia, MO. We stopped to see the Heffernans on our way home from Houston and Quilt Market last week. The horses (one is named Elvis) are some of Bill's prize livestock. He also raises sheep and cattle on their farm, Booneslick Gateway Farm.

Now, for the quote. I was showing two year old Finny my photos using the LED viewer on the little pocket Olympus and Finny got excited when he saw this photo.

"Two grandpas," he said excitedly. I looked at the viewer and could see a little boy's pleasure at two men who both looked like his grandpa! Welcome to the family, Grandpa Bill! A little Michigan boy just adopted you!
