Mom heard about this crazy place called Sam’s Junkyard and Antiques, not far from our house, but kind of in the middle of nowhere. They had lots of cool, old stuff, and people go there a lot to take photos. They do charge a small fee, but it was worth it. One nice day we packed up the camera and headed out there. It is a bizarre place, but super interesting. They have a house Dachshund roaming the grounds, and free range chickens. I had to stay on the leash because I had chicken dinner on my mind!
Last but not least, I got to sit on a firetruck from way back when. Amazing that I was never on a firetruck in my life and now I have been on two in two months…maybe I am destined to be a fire dog after all?
I guess in the 1960’s there was a TV show called Petticoat Junction and my mom loved to watch it. Special for her I posed by that water tower. Mom rambled on about Hooterville Billy Jo, Betty Jo, Bobby Jo, Uncle Joe, Kate, Steve and some others. I guess she really did like that show.
That was the beginnings of Sam’s Junkyard and Antiques. We are going to go back again one day and see what else we can find. They don’t have a website, or I would link to it. Hope you enjoyed seeing some of my finds!
