Good Cheesy Fun at the Aluminum Tree and Ornament Museum: ATOM

It is good to be a little silly during the holidays and the folks at the Aluminum Tree and Ornament Museum (ATOM) in Brevard, NC may have one of the wackiest museums around.

Staying at the Sunset Motel in Brevard, NC

The classic motor lodge is slowly going extinct so it is nice to find one still surviving in small town America. We checked in to the Sunset Motel in Brevard, NC while we were doing some house hunting in WNC.

Visit the Haines Shoe House for Ice Cream

One of our favorite places to stop for ice cream is the Haines Shoe House near York, PA. Since this was the last weekend of the season we did the roadtrip for our last ice cream fix until it reopens in the Spring next year. We joined up with my sister for this outing which made it even a little more special.

The Return of Pezylvania

Pezylvania has returned to Renninger's Antique and Farmer's Market. Ralph Riovo, founder of PEZylvania, held the first PEZylvania gathering in October of 2007. After his passing in 2012, the gathering took a little break but it is back now as strong as ever. Visiting this small gathering of PEZHeads is a great way to spend a fall day in Berks County, PA. The event also raises funds for the Animal Rescue League of Berks County, Inc (ARL).

Why own a Flamethrower? Because you can!

It finally arrived! We were one of the first to pony up the funds for The Ion Production Team's IndieGoGo campaign for their XM42 Handheld Flamethrower. This crazy piece of hardware has awesome giggle potential; we couldn't stop laughing from the moment we squeezed the trigger.
