We went to Maeystown, Ill. today (on fellow blogger, Angie's, suggestion) WOW.....What fun we had. The day couldn't have been more beautiful:D This darling little town is a hidden treasure in the farm country of Southern Ill. The creek running behind the Old Rock Mill reminded me of the River Dee in Wales........so picturesque and calming:D My daughter and I took Milly with us and Sheila, Chris and the twins met us there. Carrie and I found many treasures along with several old friends:D Always a good thing! Angie and Michelle were the first we ran into and then.....I spied a very familiar face....one that I hadn't seen in 43 yrs. (believe it or not). I called her name and she turned.....sure enough it was a sorority sister of mine from college days. That was another treasure of the day! Carrie and I had quite an adventure. We headed home only to run into a fabulous garage sale....the clearing out of an old barn because they were moving! Well, did I mention that said garage sale giver had been an antique dealer years ago.....OH YES! Well, we not only made a haul, but drove all the way back home.....dropped off Milly and purchased items.....and headed all the way back:) Yes, we had found some remarkable furniture and some remarkable prices and couldn't pass it up. On our way back I forgot to make one little turn and......we went 30 miles out of our way@##$#$% Let's just put it this way.....the day started at 9:00 am and I didn't reach home until 8:20 tonight (like Sanford and Son.....with furniture strapped to the top of my car.....LOL) REALLY!
