Well let me tell ya, I do believe I died and went to 19th century heaven! It was freakin' awesome! I couldn't have asked for a more gorgeous but unusually warm autumn day. The worst part was I filled up my memory card on my digital camera way too soon! Oh well...
Kick back and enjoy.
Yep, known as the Empire State Carousel and the only "museum you can ride."
And guess what we did...
Here's the blacksmith. Man, it was very cool in there! Check out those gigantic bellows (above his head) to stoke the fire.
Ooooh, I betcha I could wrestle those around to get the fire in our wood stove goin'. And I'd probably burn the house down too. Yikes!
I took so many more pictures, but I can't possibly post them all.
After, we scooted across the street to the Fenimore Art Museum. Oh my!! They had a Native American Exhibit that was phenomenal! I was totally smitten with this gorgeous beaded horse mask made by the Lakotas.
Finally after all was said and done, we came home.
Then I enjoyed a delicious cup of coffee in my new piece of handmade pottery. Oh, did I forget to mention we bought 2 lbs. of homemade fudge from Fly Creek Cider Mill?
Heck, that won't last 24 hours.
Well that's all folks!!
Have a fantastic weekend!

"When the trees their summer splendor
Change to raiment red and gold,
When the summer moon turns mellow,
And the nights are getting cold;
When the squirrels hide their acorns,
And the woodchucks disappear;
Then we know that it is autumn,
Loveliest season of the year."

Go for a bike ride...
Have a picnic...
Climb a tree with your young'un.
Chill out in a hammock...
Or do some fishin' with a buddy.
Heck, be daring...
Well maybe not THAT daring.
I know what you're thinkin', "Huh?" "What?!" "Do I get the day off from work???!!"
Nope, sorry folks. No day off today.
But you should get yourself a lil' pocket Constitution and start readin'.
You'll learn a lot.
