Updates





So, when Leslie (Bei Mondi) and I were making our way to and from Art Bliss, we saw the coolest outdoor menagerie of antiques and tin creatures and we had to stop! Unfortunately for us, they were CLOSED - boo hoo! I've been somewhat obsessed with it since then, so my friend and I are going to take a road trip on Saturday to visit it! I am excited - I need to buy him the donkey sculpture! Do you know anyone who has a donkey? I have no idea what the name of the store is, and the web site address they had on their door does not work. Any of you VA people know it? It was by Leesburg, I believe, in Loudoun County, close to the roundabout!

Also, my blood pressure is back to normal after medication and a much more relaxed life. Hopefully it will stay that way and I will be able to get off it soon! I have been going out and seeing friends again and making beads again! Generally, getting back to my normal self!

And HOW could I forget to mention that I just scored tickets for the U2 concert here in Pittsburgh in July! I believe we are their last tour date, so far, so should be a spectacular show!

That place looked so cool. I can hear dollar signs already :) I hope you guys have a great trip. And I'm happy to hear your blood pressure is back to normal. Life throws us some weird stuff sometimes. Hooray on the U2 tickets!

You were in Lucketts, Virginia where you saw that whole mess of yummy stuff! That is the old 'General Store' from way back when now called 'Old Lucketts Store' at the intersection of State Route 15 and Stumptown Rd (State Route 622) in Loundon County. I am not from Virginia but Maryland and Route 15 was part of my commute to work. From Lucketts, the Maryland state line is about 10 miles where you cross the Potomac River. As far as a 'round about' there is one on the Maryland side after you cross the river, go through a traffic light, and up the hill. If there is a 'round about' in Loundon County somewhere on SR 15 I am unaware of it. 'Round about' is the stupid name the State Highway Administration named those things. Where they got that idea I do not know. However, we are close enough to Washington, D.C., which has a lot of those, and they are called circles! For example, Dupont Circle. Therefore, I hope that answers your questions. BTW, this is the first time I have ever seen a blog and left a comment on one. I was in Information Technology for years and the last thing I would normally not want to do is sit and read someone else's blog. Sorry, I do not mean to offend. Best Regards, J, Frederick, Maryland.

Way cool!! Those donkeys are great.
Glad to hear things are going better healthwise - you take care of yourself.
Have a great "road trip" and please share more pics afterwards.
