Coming home from a mini weekend in Kentucky the drive home took us thru Missouri. As we approched Bowling Green a roadside sign said: Historical home of Champ Clark.
My dad had told me my grand father's nick name was Champ, so we drove into town to check out this historical home and read about the politican from Missouri.
Love lil mini trips with no particular place or destination, stopping on a whim to explore an area.
Posted the link to the website at the bottom of the pictures. Interesting read if you love history.

One of my favorite shops on Etsy is the Waterrose~ Her workmanship with textiles and embroidery is outstanding. Love how she combines old school with a new twist-look. She's created her own unique style, calling them handcrafted obsessions. Go check out her shop, you won't be dissapointed.

Two of them were only a couple of years old, another has been around 50 plus years, the closest to our farm home is the smallest and open only a couple of hours 3 times a week. We are lucky to have this library which shares a tiny structure with the city snow truck, now boasts 2 computers, storytime for children, a reading area, newspapers, magazines, movie rentals, and you can request a book, all of this in a town of 128 people. It's a happening place during those two hours.
I've missed a unique world by not checking out library's, it's not a boring place, we need to continue to support them so they don't become extinct. My humble suggestion this week, peruse a library~
