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.
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.
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.
We stopped in Friday night at a “pop-up pub” in downtown Lansdale with Andy, Lindsey and Willa. This is Willa’s first Big Thing photo with Grandpa. Both of us were pretty excited (well, maybe one of us was more excited!)
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.
We were out and about traveling down Bethlehem Pike when we spotted this Big Midas Hand. I wonder how many there are of these inflatable hands since I already have one from the Midas store on Keystone Avenue in Indianapolis.
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.
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.
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.
We were running out of time to get this photo. The house was sold, we were finalizing the move and knew about this chili out in front of Chili’s on 86th Street in Indianapolis. Most Chili’s restaurants have this up high over the door. Had to grab this before leaving town.
Our last Spring Break trip to Philadelphia found us taking Nate to the Garden State Discovery Museum. We’d been here before but did not get this photo of the Big Bug standing over the entrance.
We found that with enough time on our trip to Philadelphia we could get to the Homewood Suites in Mechanicsburg. It is a great property, illness vcialis 40mg left us only a few hours to Philly and we could eat at the Appalachian Brewing Company brewpub. Great food and a cold malt beverage after a long drive. This Big Apple sits over the dining area at the motel.
