Good Place For American Pickers

Hey y'all, I thought you might
like to see this place that Mike
and Frank, on American Pickers,
would love to stop at! It looks 
like it has been closed for years, 
but I would still like to see what 
all is on the inside! I see that Mike
and Frank have been in Texas, too
bad they didn't find this place, 
while there.

I love all the old signs and I know
Frank would be wanting them all!

Looking to the right....

This is looking down the left side of
the building....
I would love to have some of these
old wheels....

I walked along the side for a better
shot of the signs and things along 
the building.

Looking to the left at some more 
great things and another building.
You should be able to click on the 
pictures to make them bigger for
a closer view. Check out those old
bathtubs, I have one of them in my 
other house, it is on legs and good 
to soak in.....The trouble is, I think
is has shrunk over the years (or
maybe the problem is, I got bigger)....
nah, couldn't be the latter ;).....I 
hope you enjoyed seeing this old 
place, thanks for coming along.

If you haven't signed up for my 
giveaway, please do!  All of you that
have signed up, I will be e-mailing
you all in the next few days with how
many chances you have earned. Also,
welcome to my new followers.

I have to tell you to be aware of 
where you are putting your feet!
I was out in the garden on Friday
morning and I felt something bite 
me and looked down and my feet
were covered with fire ants!  I tried
to wash them off with water from 
the hose and it ticked them off!
I have at last count, 113 bites on 
my right foot and 20 on my left!
Some are showing up more as they
start to blister!  I was moving some
grass, etc for mulch around the few 
tomato plants that have survived
this awful heat and I was standing 
in a nest of them! I had sandals 
on and so they had a lot of area to
bite on!......Beware, be very aware,
they might be coming to a yard 
near you!!! 

Talking about surviving the heat,
it was 110 or more most of the past 
week, I think it was Wednesday, 
that it hit 116 degrees! That did not
include the heat index! 
I am going to be staying in the 
house as much as possible,
this week!

Thanks for stopping by and I 
hope y'all stay cool and have 
a great week!

That's awful about the ants, this time of year as the weeds grow in the garden I'm always worried I'll step on a snake, UGH, now I'll have to watch for those pesky ants as well;) I love American pickers and I would LOVE to go dig around that place it looks so cool!!!! thanks for sharing it with us and have a great day;)
