Welcome, Everyone.

I decided to start blogging because I have an active imagination and sometimes, I get an overload of thoughts in my head and the only way to decrease the overload and increase brain space is to  write.  My blog consists of writings about my feelings and views on certain subjects and issues, whether it’s personal or something in the news. On occasion, I may even voice my opinion on certain political issues.  Just keep in mind that no matter how I feel or what I say, they are MY feelings and MY sayings, even though you may disagree with certain views.  I always welcome comments and feedback, and I enjoy conversational exchanges and differences of opinions, as long as the exchanges are civilized.  All I ask is that a level of respect be maintained.  By that, I mean no bashing, no name calling, no extreme profanity, etc.  I also post excerpts from my short stories and books for your reading pleasure (?) and feedback.  I accept constructive criticism very well, so NEVER be ashamed or afraid to say what you feel.  I will NEVER debase you.  I will, however, delete mean and/or hateful comments, whether they’re directed at me or at any of my readers.  Let’s just have some fun and friendly conversations.  Welcome to my little corner of the world!

Clark County Museum, Jeffersonville, Indiana

While exploring the many shops and boutiques downtown in the Old Jeffersonville Historic District during the Chocolate Lover’s Stroll, I came upon a treasure that I never knew existed. Had it not been a part of the Saturday event, I might’ve never known about it.

This small museum is located at 725 Michigan Avenue and is chock full of historical artifacts and information about Clark County, Indiana – specifically, Jeffersonville.

I had a wonderful guide who was more than happy to describe the artifacts and displays as we walked through the museum, which is good because I had a ton of questions.

The pictures I took inside the museum are listed below. I hope you enjoy scrolling through them as much as I enjoyed my visit to the museum.

If you’re ever in Jeffersonville, Indiana and are looking for something fun to do, take a trip to the Clark County Museum.

Ask for Jeanne Burke and tell her that Glenda sent you.

(Army Uniforms)

(Artillery from years gone by)

(Belly up to the bar, boys!)

(Child’s active diorama from the 1930’s. Jeanne turned it on so I could see how it works, but the video didn’t turn out too well. Shucks!)

(Before the invention of railroads, circus animals traveled by steam boat. This is an excellent display and is much larger than it appears.)

(Needs no introduction!)

(Grocery display)

(Check out those prices!!!)

(Check out the date on this list!!)

(Keep the change, ya filthy animal!)
