Rockin Relics

 Dawn & I discovered another fun place to go when we make a trip to Rugby. On Main street two doors down from our favorite consignment shop "Worn-a-Bit" sits "Rockin Relics" a 1940's soda fountain/antique store.

 It's been said that entering the front door is like going back to Mayberry.

 This restaurant is decorated with Coke and movie memorabilia. They have an array of sandwiches, burgers and salads to choose from. I enjoyed a Paradise club as I sipped my watermelon soda.

 If you get a chance to explore Rugby North Dakota stop in "Rockin Relics" You never know who you might see there. I spotted Lucy and Desi. Oh, look there's Elvis.....

Skull Art

I am an artist at heart. When I get a bit of spare time I dig out my paints and brushes. I paint on any surface available. In the past I have had my eye out for smooth rocks to paint scenes and flowers on.

Lately I have been intrigued by skulls. You can find them while walking about our property. Buffalo, cattle and deer, many of these animals souls have flown off to the great unknown and left their bones lying about.

Here is my latest skull art.
Painted on a cow skull.

 I hope these creatures don't mind that I am using their bones for my creations.
