Bar Stool Race

This guy is advertising his bar stool race when he was in the Bellefonte Cruise. Notice the actual bar stools on these and the high handles. I hadn't seen these before and thought they looked interesting.

I just want to say, thanks to all on visited my site while I was on vacation. I was able to still post a few times but it was hard using the computer with everyone else in the hotel. I'm actually surprised they had a computer to use. I really enjoyed my vacation and the weather was wonderful. We went to San Francisco, CA. I may post a few photos if anyone would like to see them.

Bellefonte Cruisin Around

This photo is in the streets at the Bellefonte Cruise. Everyone goes around the block again, and again, and again.

I am posting this from the hotel. They have free use of one for ten minutes at a time, if you can get on. I won't be able to reply to anyone's post till I get back but will be looking at all your posts. Thanks for looking.

Back to the 50's

Here's our waitress when we go on our vacation, serving burgers and shakes. Just kidding except for the vacation part. Does anyone remember a waitress bringing their food out to the car back in the 50's? I don't, but my mom and dad tell me they do. This was at the Bellefonte Cruise.

I will be posting back here on Wednesday. See you then.

I took these while at the Bellefonte Cruise this past weekend. Once a year they have a cruise where anyone can enter their vehicle and ride around the block while everyone gathers the streets like their watching the parade. There are judges who will judge them on different things. I'm not sure how they do the judging. After the cruise which last maybe an hour or two, there is a 50's sock hop.

The next day they close off the streets in Bellefonte for anyone to just go around and look at the different cars, trucks and motorcycles. It gives everyone a chance to rev up their vehicles and show off the hard work they put into them.

Lots of chrome and spic and span.

Flower wheelbarrow

While leaving at Belleville I noticed this in somone's yard. I see people doing the fallen bucket around here, but not a full size wheelbarrow and watering can with the flowers coming out of it. I liked it though.

Animal Camp Fire

At the Belleville market they also sell crafts, T-shirts, antiques, homemade pies and numerous other items. I have one of these skunks at my house, but would like at least several other animals so it looks like they're having a campfire. I think they're cute.

The Auction Barn

Here's the auction barn at the Belleville market. An Amish guy is leaning on the barn door, but inside they're alot more people strolling through to look at the livestock. And, inside on the top of this barn is a restaurant. You go through a different entrance.

Here on this photo a few guys at the other end of the barn just relaxing and chating. Socializing is the thing to do here.

And finally here's what you see in the barn, this cow peeking out.

Amish Ladies at the Belleville sell

Here you can see an Amish mother and her daughter walking around at the sell. I try not to get their faces. They do not want their faces photographed, it's against their religion. I try to respect that.

The Hitching Post

Belleville is about a 50 minute drive from Bellefonte. In the summer, and every Wednesday they have a livestock auction, flea market and fresh produce sell. Alot of the Amish go there with their homemade things to sell. If you want to learn more about the Amish people and their lifestyle you can go here: This photo is where they hitch up their horses while they're at the sell. I'll have a few more photo's that follow.

Fallen Tree Along The Creek

I came across this fallen tree along the creek while walking the dog.

Cat & Mouse or you tell me

This plant sits along side my sisters house. She said it is called a cat & mouse plant, but I'm not sure if she was just joking or not. I don't remember seeing them but maybe have in the stores and never payed much atttention to them. At least I've never seen them in a barrel the way she has them. Does anyone know the name of this plant or is it really called a cat & mouse plant?

How many rakes do you need?

How many different kinds of rakes do you need? Obviously, my mom needs three. She had these leaning on the tree and I thought it would be a good photo.

My brother's Walkway / Pump & Well

My brother took a barrel (or whatever you call it) and added the pump to it, along with a walkway he made. I believe he has this working at times so the water runs out of the pump to make it look like a fountain.

Note from yesterday: Our phone lines and water were out from about 8 pm on Friday till about 9 pm on Saturday. Both are back on and I'm glad. It's amazing how you miss the computer right away when you can't get on.

This photo is another photo I took at Boalsburg in someone's back yard. It is actually a yard behind the windchimes and the business I was taking photos of. Please Note: There was a big storm here in my area last night and my phone line and computer are down. They say they are working on it but if I don't answer that is why. Hopefully, I'll be back online soon. They say by Monday night at the latest. Argh! Hope it's before that. I'm doing this at the library. Thank goodness I have a few photos to fall back on.

Friday, June 8, 2007


This photo is the last one for this place that I was posting the last few days. They also have a Gazebo and have these huge windchimes. I never seen any chimes this big.

Thursday, June 7, 2007


This fairy is also along the side of the building that I've been showing you. This is before you get to the walkway. It was really pretty back in this area. I believe I have one more photo to show you tomorrow of this spot then I should be moving on to something else.

Walkway to fountain

This is the walkway you come up upon of the fountain I posted yesterday. When you walk back you can go under this walkway and it would take you to their parking area. But when you first come up to this walkway, you make a right and then you see the small area they had with the fountain you seen yesterday.

Tuesday, June 5, 2007


Here's a small fountain and some plants I took that sits behind one of the business' at Boalsburg. There'a a nice sitting area along with a walkway that I will be posting.

Marlin and Spot

My sister got another horse. This is Marlin on the left and Spot on the right. It took a few shots before I finally got a portrait style photo of these two.

Looking through the rails.

This is the same walkway as yesterday, just a different perspective. This is sitting on my mom's porch. If you look at yesterday's photo you'll see the railing on the left hand side. When you walk down the sidewalk you go into their garage that my dad built. Or, if you want, you can walk around the garage and they put a sidewalk on the side instead of walking in the grass.

Here's my mom's walkway to her porch. She loves these white flowers but I don't remember what she said they were.

Theme Day: Looking out the Bedroom window

Today is theme day, looking out the bedroom window. This isn't looking out my window but what someone else would see from their's. I went up to a neighborhood that's sit's on a hill in Bellefonte and this is what they would see.

Here's the photo I was trying to decide on. Figured I should just post today. This was a scene looking out my window Saturday, May 26th. The neighbors tree was struck by lightning and it split. They have it cleaned up now, it was six days ago.
