Had to take a trip down to Joliet today. Found this cool looking sign, and some of the best tacos I have ever had.


The Blue Taco in Joliet. Well worth the trip.

Found another local ghost sign. This time while stopping to get some fantastic locally made carbonated beverages.

Filbert’s Old Time Root Beer and Quality Beverages.

We have a pumpkin. I have no idea when we will have time to carve it, but we have a pumpkin.

It’s not under the boardwalk, but it is under the viaduct.

Let’s see if we can get the color right this time.

There are things I find I am getting too old to do. What made me think getting up on a step ladder inside a bath tub to paint was a good idea?

1980’s roller skating party.

We are rockin’ this look. And it all came out of our closet.

Yep.  It is a giant cow and a rainbow.

I learned of a new concept today. Well, it is an old concept, but new to me.

Ghost Signs.

Old painted signs, usually on the side of brick building, but faded and pealed and almost unnoticed in today’s modern world. But once I got the idea, it didn’t take me long to find one.

And the shelves are already half empty.
