Steve’s Sewing & Vacuum

In need of a sewing machine table Deb and I visited Steve’s Sewing and Vacuum in King of Prussia along Rt. 202.  I know there was a Big Vacuum in front of the store and could swear that I had an image that I took when I went by with Andy a number of years ago.   But I don’t see it on the site.  Need to investigate further.  At any rate we came away with this image and a new sewing table.

Turkey Hill Experience Cow

I have a Turkey Hill Cow already (see below) but it was a traveling cow on a trailer.  That is what I expected to find here.  Instead I found a much larger version of the cow.  Much like the many cows we’ve found elsewhere.  The Turkey Hill Experience is an admission charge museum type venue located in Columbia, Pennsylvania just off US-30.

Tom Sturgis Pretzel Factory

After our trip to York to see a Time 4 Three performance (which Deb gave me as a gift) we took a route home leading through Reading, PA.  In Skillington, near Reading I had researched a Big Pretzel.  It is located in front of the Tom Sturgis Pretzel Factory on Lancaster Pike.  Truly a great pretzel, too bad it was a Sunday and we couldn’t get in the retail store to buy some of these pretzels.

Rhoads Garden Chair

We’ve been past Rhoads Garden a number of times and didn’t stop to grab this Big Chair.  Nice chair and I understand Rhoads Garden is a very good garden center.  If you are in southeast Pennsylvania stop in.  They’re at 570 DeKalb Pike in North Wales.

Tennessee Bird Dog

Here are a couple photos from my banjo playing pal, Bill.  On his way to Memphis to get his banjos tuned he spotted these two Big Things in Cross Plains at the Hwy 25 exit.  He found a 1929 Gibson in Memphis, his soul mate, for $29,000 but was shot down by Marge.

Outlet Ornament

We moved to the Philadelphia area last June.  When exploring the area we found the Philadelphia Premium Outlet Mall just 20 minutes away.  Well we had a little time and decided to stop by.  Quite a surprise, a nice outlet mall.  Best of all, right after getting there and looking at the store directory I spotted this Big Ornament.  Had to get this photo.

Arrowhead Lake Big Native American

On the way out of the Arrowhead Lake Community where Ben and Annie purchased their Lake House we stopped by the Community Club House and they gave me a tour. Really nice and lots of room for all the activities available. In the lobby area I had to get this image of the Big Native American.

Gelco Paints and Wallcoverings

I was up at the Ben and Annie’s “Lake House” when they closed and we made a trip to the Big Box stores in nearby Mt. Pocono to pick up some items for the new property.  While leaving we stopped at Gelco Paints since they had this Big Paint Can and Painter out in front.  Gelco is on PA 940 and looks like a great place to pick up some Benjamin Moore paint.

Johnson’s Farm Glove

We were in New Jersey for Grandparents Day at Nate’s preschool.  Actually it was more like Grandparents Hour.  Anyway we took Nate out to lunch and then spent the afternoon at Johnson’s Corner Farm in Medford. A great place to spend time with Nate.  They have a very nice playground, animal feeding, and hayrides out to pick the crops in season.  For us it was apples and pumpkins.  On the playground was this big baseball glove with a hole in the palm to throw beanbags through.

Pearl Beer Bird Dog

Here’s a Bird Dog sighting from my sister Catherine.  She and Dale were in San Antonio and spotted this big beauty.  If you look closely you can see Dale standing below the Big Can of Pearl Beer.

Reading Terminal Market Ice Cream Cone

We drove into Philadelphia during the Democratic Convention, vialis 40mg it seemed only fair since we were in town during the Republican Convention in 2000.  There was lots to do and at lunch time what better than stopping at Reading Terminal Market for lunch.  I had to have a cheese steak to celebrate being back.  While there we spotted this Big Ice Cream Cone.

Isabelle’s Kitchen Whisk

On the way back from the ACE Hardware in Harleysville (see below) Andy and I stopped at Isabelle’s Kitchen to grab this Big Whisk.  In truth, Deb spotted this earlier but I didn’t stop for the photo.

ACE Hardware Grill

Andy and I ran to the local ACE Hardware in Harleysville to pick up some items I needed to get the new house in order.  Most of them I had but they were packed away.  He took this photo of another Green Egg Grill.  I captured one previously from the display at the Sullivan Hardware store on Keystone Ave. in Indianapolis.
