Mish Mash

That’s just what this is today.  No leaves left…no snow to speak of…it ain’t pretty out there.  What should I do?  Well, I have been wanting to take some pictures of some bottles we bought for Lovely.  We found them at the candy store of all placesDSC02869.  You might be thinking they would have suited an October post betterDSC02870.  You’re probably right but seeing as how my options are limited I’ll show case these nowDSC02871.  The labels on these things are pricelessDSC02872.  Ever heard of snake oil?  How about love potion #9 or the elixir of lifeDSC02873?  Yeah, we’ve got ‘em all!  Never mind they’re empty.  Closer examination of these labels makes me glad they came to us emptyDSC02874!  These things are pricelessDSC02875!  Dragon blood?  Who knew it existedDSC02876!  LOL!  Eye of newt…you mean it’s realDSC02877?  Too bad this was empty…maybe I’d still look like I was only 21DSC02878!  Yep, a close up of good ‘ol love potion #9DSC02879…perhaps this is why I was able to marry a girl the caliber of my wife!

    2. A very interesting collection of bottles Joe. I remember going to the carnival when I was a very young girl about 100 years ago. There was a pitchman hawking this wonderful potion that would cure everything for only $1. Of course it was mostly alcohol. l.

    3. I've seen old Westerns with carpet baggers doing that but I've never seen it in real life! Wasn't whiskey known as "grandpa's old cough medicine"?

    1. We got a few more nutcrackers this year actually...it won't be long now until they make their annual appearance once again. These bottles...I may not want to know what they'd be filled with in reality!

    1. Thanks Lisa...as of yet there's no companion to these bottles...there may never be...the labels are somewhat fragile. Thanks for your prayers...as far as I know family is safe...we can only wait and see.
