Iron frying pans and other cool stuff

After taking yesterday's picture, I turned around and saw this interesting collection hanging on the outside of someone's house. Those iron frying pans remind me of my grandmother. She used to cook in them all the time and I even have one that belonged to her that I still use every once in awhile.

Although the sign says it's the "home of Cal's Tupelo Honey", this building is sitting empty near downtown Havana. I liked the way it looks.

Ice cold soda in the bottle

Now this is the way we drank our soda back when I was a kid. We bought these drinks at Havana's General Store and they sure were good! I even taught my grandson how to blow air across the top of the bottle and make it sound like a foghorn.

Just one more...

I couldn't resist! This guy is located across the street from the one I showed yesterday. My grandkids really liked this one.

Hot Dog?

One of the things I like about Havana are these cute little pieces of art located in random spots downtown. Last year I posted a picture of another one here. I had to be careful taking this picture because it is located on the side of a building right on main street and I didn't want to get run over!

Save the Tata's

I couldn't resist taking a picture of this display in front of one of the buildings in downtown Havana. As you probably already know, October is breast cancer awareness month.

A little break....

I want to apologize for not posting regularly or visiting and commenting on my favorite blogs lately. I am retired, but find that I am working harder than ever taking care of my grandchildren. I can't seem to get out and get pictures for my blog as easily as I could before. The two older ones are 8 and 4 years old and attend school during part of the day, but the little one is not quite 3 months old and he is taking up most of my time, in a good way! I am really enjoying this new phase of my life, and I appreciate all of my blogging friends so much. I ask for your patience while I try to strike a healthy balance with my new responsibilities and my blogging activities. Happy weekend!

Taphophile Tragics

These three Civil War era graves are located in Old City Cemetery near downtown. This cemetery was established in 1829 and is the oldest public cemetery in Tallahassee. Only the marker in the front of the picture bears the name of the person buried here, while the others are simply marked "C.S.A." which stands for Confederate States of America. There is a section on the opposite side of the cemetery where Union soldiers are buried. To see more interesting cemetery pictures, visit Taphophile Tragics.
