Ed and I got up early this morning and went for a drive. I have never been to McConnelsville or Stockport, which are little towns on the Muskingum River. So that is where we headed. Though it was a bit chilly and snow was flurrying about, we had such a good time. We originally planned to have lunch at the Stockport Inn,
but upon arriving discovered that they were having a private wedding at their facility, so we had lunch at a neat 50's diner in McConnelsville instead. It even had a jukebox! Yes! *smile*
Okay, the smallest Kroger store in the world must be this one in McConnelsville! I could hardly believe it! I just had to take a picture! (It doesn't take much to excite me,k? *smile*)
McConnelsville has many beautiful and historic buildings. Here are a few other pictures that I took:
In the picture above, in the middle of the building is the old opera house which is now a movie theater. We peeked in the window and could see that it was absolutely beautiful inside. I wish we could have gone in, but it was closed.
Above, is the courthouse which is located on the traffic circle in the center of town. Below is a beautiful Methodist church.
Oh, and there's one more picture to post. You see, as we were approaching our turn to go into Stockport, there was a sign that said: "Big Bottom Memorial ahead". Wellllll, I told Ed we HAD to go see THAT! I mean, a memorial to big butts? Hello? *smile* But, as it turns out, it wasn't that at all. It was a memorial to the Big Bottom Massacre which ocurred during the Revolutionary War on the bottomland in this area near the Muskingum River.
And while I'm posting pictures, I might as well post one of my gorgeous little grandbaby! *smile* Okay, make that TWO! Pictures, that is, not grandbabies! *smile* He will be 9 weeks old Monday!
