I’m offering up a continued edition of last week’s Thursday Doors post. This one is on the opposite side of the tracks in Sedalia, Missouri.
Directly to the left of where I stood for that Big Sky View to be more precise. This building at 118 North Lamine I learned through a phone call, yes I still have a land line, has been a moving/storage business for around 80 years. Currently State Fair Moving and Storage operate from here. Prior to that, the informer says he believed it was a carriage building business. It is not on the list I found for the National Historical Register in Sedalia. But in my opinion, it should be. I’m still waiting for a phone call or email of the person who is supposed to know all the good stuff. Til then I hope you enjoy a little slideshow of this golden oldie.

It’s been awhile since I posted a crochet post. However, I’ve not been neglecting my creative duties. I finished the 2018 A to Z Challenge with a quilt top, began the Season of Yardwork and Gardening, did plenty of mending, got contacted to do some custom items, and finished the following little number for my Etsy shop. There’s never a dull moment at my house.
Just going to make one more of these in Pink and white before I dive into some other projects.
What’s next? With the heat of summer, I will most likely stick with small projects that won’t raise my temperature in Missouri’s humid months. Here are some Pinterest ideas I find enticing.
I highly encourage these motif centered ideas for my crochet friends along with a tall glass of lemonade while sitting on your porch. Don’t forget the fan!
Inspired by Stepheny Forgue Houghtlin during the April A to Z Challenge for this week’s Thursday Doors is The Dusty Bookshelf in Lawrence, Kansas. During the Challenge, her theme was Bookstores-Stepping Across the Threshhold. I had to let her know about this treasure after we visited it during April. Thanks to her, I discovered yet more quilting books and a couple music (banjo) books to feed my book fix for a bit. And, oh darn, I’ll be back in Lawrence this weekend for a graduation and just may be forced to fit in a few more minutes here perusing those shelves. Until then, sharing the front of the shop. I’ve yet to get enough nerve to snap pics inside. Maybe next time and then I’ll even snap a few pics of my finds.

I was trying to figure out a way to connect this daily challenge with my recent news of the weekend. And ‘by jove I’ve got it”!!! I found a picture that sums up how much I like history……
Maybe you will realize my connection? I am definitely a history buff. Always interested in my ancestry and so with a ‘SALE’ on ancestry.com, it was a no-brainer for me to try a DNA test. First off, I sent in the spit in the vial. This was April 2. A 6 to 8 week waiting period was to be expected. I waited a tad bit longer due to an apparently larger-than-expected batch of tests sent in after Christmas. I guess they did pretty good with their sale. My results came in over the weekend. And without further ado, I present my findings.
My reaction? I had no idea whatsoever about the Iberian Peninsula connection. None. That translates to Portugal/Spain by the way. I mean it was even more than the Irish and Great Britain that I was fully aware of. Someone’s got some splainin’ to do 🙂
Those bottom 3 literally blow my mind too. And whatever happened to the Legend of our Native American ancestry? I think Great Grandma had an ornery streak and was quite the story teller. If you’ve ever had a DNA test done, were you convinced of the results?
Now time to dive in and do the family tree stuff. Stay tuned…….
This week for my entry, I’d like to share a piece of our heart. Jake gets to stay at home starting next week with his mother and soon-expected sibling. We have grown pretty attached to this little guy but we know he will still stop in to visit now and then.
I’d like to think I’ve shared a little bluegrass music heritage with him in his first year and a half.
And now, dear daughters, you know why I collect banjos 😉

This week for my Thursday Doors, you’ll see the interior view of The Folly Theatre in downtown Kansas City, Missouri. The handsome man you see here took me for a special evening out to celebrate our 30th anniversary.
I’m particularly fond of the earliest part of the evening as it was before ‘The Drink’.
We had exclusive box seats. The one I circled is directly opposite ours. So Stage view was amazing!
I do remember most everything. Especially meeting Brother Marty Stuart and the Fabulous Superlatives after the show. But to the person who slipped that something extra in my drink, just know that this ol’ girl didn’t fall off a turnip truck. I ended up with a nice policeman escorting me to the door with sincere interest in how I ended up in that condition. Your day will come.
