We had a nice day today until the rains came... A bunch of us went over to David's Stove Shop to check out the eclectic mix of antiques and new items. There is everything from old milk bottles, like the ones the milk man used to leave at our front door when we were kids, to new modern stoves. their specialty is obviously stoves and there are hundreds of stoves, from kitchen stoves to outdoor models. There is a lot of cool stuff inside this store.
Speaking of the store, the entire building is made of wood and metal and seems to be a hundred years old. I learned that David had actually built the buildings from recycled materials from houses and barns that were being torn down. I would estimate that there are 8-10 rooms from at least that many buildings. All of the floor boards, the beams and the interior roofing materials are very old or have been aged to simulate old wood, and the place looks very authentic.
There is a restaurant called The Shed inside the business that serves delicious sandwiches and soups and we had a great meal with our friends. Even though we all ate the small sandwiches, we all brought something home.
Almost as soon as we got back to the park, the rains came! Thunderstorms with lots of rain and some hail fell for a few hours n the afternoon but when the rain stopped the sun came out and it was a nice afternoon. I did get out and met some of the new folks, Jack and Lynette and Clarence from Oklahoma. We had nice visits and will be looking forward to the rest of the rally and to future rallies that we hope they will attend.
