Wednesday March 4th was a bit odd. Not only did I go to Nacogdoches (almost an hour drive) to work at a feed store for the day, the lovely 80 degrees we were enjoying (if you recall last week my walk featured snow, AH!) dropped to 40 in a two-hour time period. And it rained on and off. And Addie was with me. And I decided to go on a 3 day cleanse. But we are getting off subject.
Here is what I saw.
At the feed store.
I have a love of dishes, horses, chickens, wine, chocolate, cheese, Alfredo sauce, scones, wooden tables, wooden doors, scarves, men, travel, books, blogging, old people and old houses. Not in any particular order.
I love this house.
We finally arrived at the store and, for once, didn’t have to wait on the train.
The tracks run right next to what was once the feed mill.
Sadly, they no longer mix feed here. My uncle, Bill, ran the feed mill for 30-something years. I worked for 11 years in another feed store in Jacksonville. The man I worked for bought the store that Bill worked for a few years ago and moved the mill operation to Jacksonville. Bill retired, I quit yet we both helped out after hanging up our feed store caps. Which is why I’m here today. Helping I mean. I know, I’m being long-winded but now you know. Don’t you feel enlightened?
There is still a lot of old tanks and equipment around the place…..
The sign, though weathered, is still up.
There are TONS of dandelions right now…..
Then we headed back up the rather steep hill.
Thanks for joining us today!
Oh, and there was a really pretty cat but you can’t see him until Friday. It was so pretty it got its own post!
Until then, have a great week!
