Brandt's, a gray stone building, has become a suburban landmark. It dates back more than 120 years and originally was a farmhouse in Inverness, according to our local newspaper, The Daily Herald. It is really an old, dark bar that does not use traditional menus....they write it on a chalkboard...but has the BEST burgers and ribs, in my opinion.
Please visit all the ABC participants listed in my side bar.

This is a little boutique store called "Acorn". It is one of those stores that is not "designer" but you won't see yourself "coming and going" should you decide to buy something from here. Be sure to visit all the ABC participants listed in my side bar!

This is another attempt at a night shot. I am amazed that it looks so much like day as it was late at night....this little ditch is usually snow covered and frozen....my dogs think this is a great place to visit....I, of course, frown on their muddy paws but what's a girl to do? Much of the winter wildlife likes this area and I am sure that is one reason the dogs love it!

This is the closest hospital to Inverness. I was here visiting a friend who has fallen and broken his hip. St. Alexius is run by the Alexian Brothers. They have two hospitals in the area. This one and their other one is called Alexian Brothers Medical Center. Yes, it is confusing. You just hope your ambulance driver knows the difference!(Only for speed...they are both excellent hospitals!)

There is stuff to buy at Cabela's... but the display at the top is what caught my eye. Lots of stuffed animals here....I am not big on hunting but this store also has lots of sports equipments...for skiing, or snow blowing or just about anything people do outside...camping, dog stuff.... the list is endless. Obviously they sell guns....I just noticed that is what is on the back wall. The store is like no other store I have been in. Worth a trip if you live near one.

On the opposite side of the fall scene is the winter scene at Cabela's. There are little tags next to all the animals that say when and where they were located/shot( I assume). Some of the tags are from the 70's. It is nice to know that the taxidermists know how to make them last!

I was wondering what I could do for "X"...x-ray obviously as I am a retired x-ray tech I have a few...even the one of my broken little finger! but figured everyone would do that....so my mom, on her way home, drove through the town of Xenia, Ohio...just East of Dayton, and took this picture. Thanks, Mom!
And since no one did an X-Ray, I feel compelled to do one since this was what I did for years. So here is a foot, a wrist and a finger...but not mine!!
