I look at life a bit differently, and like to post my weird thoughts. I like musicial instrument repair and woodworking. For trying to live a somewhat normal life, a lot of weird things happen to me. Instead of putting up with it, I post about it in this blog.

Vacation Day: The Arts and Crafts Festival at Ripley, W.V., Part 1
My vacation to West Virginia was lousy. All except for one day. That was the day that I visited the Arts and Crafts Festival in West Virginia. 90% of the crafts there were handmade one at a time. Due to having no money I didn't buy anything. But I did take lots of pictures. I figured it would make a good blog.
This tractor was attached to a corn meal making machine. It was kind of neat.
Here's some video of it, so you can see how it works.
This guy liked dead animals.
Oh look, it's a Buckeye butterfly.
I should get a tattoo of this butterfly on my stomach where my scar is.
This is a nice painting. It won a ribbon. I gotta say, I wish I could paint like this.
Here's some quilts that won ribbons too.
And a dulcimer.
And some woodturned bowls.
This was a sweet bench.
Here's some framed prints. They were quite nice.
This was a super cool turned bowl. It won a ribbon too.
Here's a neat idea. Want your house to look like it has overgrown mushrooms growing in your front yard? Well, buy a few of these.
That's it for now. Stay tuned to parts two and three.
