Travels, on purpose and accidental

My dh Mr. TellBlast and I went with my oldest to Chicago earlier this week. We purposely saw some really great sites, visited three colleges (yikes to have a child this age!), and ate some wonderful food with extraordinary service (Chicago Q, we love you).

We spent less than 24 hours at home between a Colorado trip and this Chicago trip. Knowing that we’d be staying home for a long time once we left Chicago, I really looked forward to the ride home.

During a road trip stop, we randomly chose to pull over in LeClaire, where TugFest was getting started. dh filled the gas tank, and heard some music coming from a neighboring house. He investigated, and told us to walk up the hill toward the music. This is what we saw:

It's the home of Antique Archaeology

We have been big fans of the show Antique Archaeology, and Mr. TellBlast and I both grew up in antiques store families. His family was visited by pickers selling their wares every week. And the boot! He was really tickled to see it. I’ll upload a different photo of it soon, once I find it. In the words of Bob Ross, “Happy little accident.”
