Old House With Green Shutters

A Plump Wife and a Big Barn

Midwestern advertising on a funnel cake stand at a small town county fair in Indiana. To bring some international perspective, in most Turkish villages I think there would be no need for the encouragement written on this lady’s apron. One timeĀ I went out and visited a village around here with my wife, and the first thing the ladies of the village did was to take her down and weigh her on the grain scale. I guess to see if she was plump enough. No word on the verdict.

Of course in Turkey people don’t have the option of getting plump on corn dogs and funnel cakes. The midwesterners have the advantage there.

He Sees You When You’re Sleeping

So this is a little creepy, but probably not creepier than that song. Santa Claus was watching from both of these windows when we visitedĀ Ellicott City, Maryland. Ellicott City is a place that has plenty of Americana feel to it, plenty of antique and vintage stores, but it was still strange to see this in the windows … in the middle of May.
