The following video starts here and the two shots

House On The Rock.

Some great views from here.

The wind, while we were in Wisconsin
was only blowing around 35 mph.

Hi CM: I hope you are well. Your YouTube isn't up at the moment.

Wow, that was splendid, so much cool stuff, the three guys with the flag, the monkeys, the Viking shortboat. I would love to leave something that cool behind. Thank you, Michael.

Love the tasting banner!

Alll this AND one of my favorite songs, containing one of my favorite lyrics:
"A oorah, a oorah, a oogah, oogah"
You may rest assured I will pay many visits to Roadside America dot com and, as a gesture of eternal friendships among the peoples of the world, I give you this website in exchange:

No, not a mention of it, you are most welcome.

(Nick Englebert had a wonderful view, didn't he? Yes, the view in his head was fascinating also but no, I'm talking about the view out on the countryside. Magnifico !)

skybridge: Thanks! ; )

marazul: Hello and Thanks for your visit and link. I will be sure to check it out later! Cheers!


brian: Oh yeah and other "things."

kris: It seems at least here, creativity is something best left to the past. But we know there are many out there still creating, no matter what. It can't be stopped.

ronda: Thanks for stopping by.

whimsical? yes i should say so!

I just love the new top of your blog banner photograph! What a great photo. The sampling and testing of coffees, I wonder if that was his hobby or profession in the photo. He sure looks like a coffee pro! I bow to the caffeinated nectar of the Gods.

The wind, the loneliness, the wierd statues and the way you slowly pan the camera make me think about the beginning of a mistery movie :)

Coffee Messiah said...

cafeP: He was from way back, hence the look of his folk art. There's more further N of here, which we hope to see before summer's out.
