A Quick and Fun Trip to Ashland

This week my husband spent the week in Ashland for work. I got to join him for the last couple of days and it was a total blast. A total hot and humid blast but still a blast.

We checked out an old ghost town south of Jacksonville called Buncom and here are some photos:

This is the original post office of Buncom Oregon.

 

Country Store Buncom

This was the local Country Store.

Church Buncom

It appears that this might have been a church? There are pews inside the building.

 

We also had the privilege of visiting an old cemetery. Here are some pictures of that fun adventure. We were careful not to walk on anyone. Full cemetery respect was given. Unless you aren’t supposed to take pictures. In which case, I’m sunk.

I loved this simple grave with two hearts.

This was a very touching headstone with one side being the wife and the other side being the husband. "Together Forever" Also, If my headstone could sound half as inspiring as this one...I'd consider myself lucky.

And here is the husband's side. It was neat to see that he invented something that my husband deals with everyday in his job.

We also got to watch the World Cup in historic Jacksonville which was fun! Go Germany! All in all, it was a fantastic trip. We checked out two local breweries (and therefore I bought two new t-shirts…for my server job of course) was serenaded by classical guitar and all of this in less than 72 hours. We made the most of it folks!

Podcasts That Make me Giggle

headphones

While working in data entry at MODA I was allowed to wear headphones while I worked. LOVED IT! But what do you listen to for 8 hours a day? 5 days a week. That’s a lot of time to fill. I got a good amount of romance novels in via audiobooks. Holla to my lady Robyn Carr and the Virgin River Series. You kept me entertained and dissatisfied with my marriage all at once. Hooray for romance novels and their unrealistic relationships!

That’s the secret folks…the ladies are listening to 50 Shades of Grey while at work. I never got my hands on it though…too popular. So I quickly found podcasts that met my fancy and I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you folks. Here we go…

This is Aaron and my favorite podcast. It is great for a long drive or with a glass of wine on the couch. Jeff Garlin is such a gem and his guests are always funny. If you want to pee your pants laughing I highly recommend downloading the Tig Notaro episode. Pure gold. Pure gold!

The Josh and Ross podcast is no longer creating new episodes because Ross has a new show on E! and doesn’t have the time but it is completely worth going back and listening to these babies. H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S. For adults!

This UK podcast has a wonderful question and answer format that guarantees quick and funny responses. Great chemistry between the hosts. This podcast is a real original.

Well those are some very funny podcasts for you to check out. Laughter is important folks!

Check out what I passed on my way to work! I have some creative neighbors…
