The Shot Tower

Second Visit
Last fall we made a visit to the Shot Tower which is south of Wytheville, VA on Interstate 77, but the gate was closed. Last week me made a second visit and the gate was unlocked, so we got a closer look. The following picture describes the purpose and the process of the shot tower.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
Are you planting anything this year? Many people have a small garden or at least plant some flowers in some pots. Look what Kevin and Family have in their flower pot this year.oreo
That’s Oreo in a flower pot.
It seems she has dug some of the dirt out of the pot
and she likes to sit there.
Dogs better than flowers?

Joke of the Day

A guy goes to visit his grandmother and he brings his friend with him.

While he's talking to his grandmother, his friend starts eating the peanuts on the coffee table, and finished them off.

As they're leaving, his friend says to his grandmother,
"Thanks for the peanuts."

She says, "Yeah, since I lost my dentures I can only suck the chocolate off them."
