It Was Closed
About a year ago I purposed to go visit the Valentine Mill in Dandridge, Tennessee. I had read about this old working mill, and desired to see the mill operate and perhaps buy a few bags of fresh ground corn meal. Well, we found the mill, but learned from a nearby business that it had closed up. I got some pictures, but no corn meal.

|Old Signs. I like the bottom one. ||Old mill grinding stone in the yard |

l still would like to visit a working old fashion mill that still grinds corn. Does anyone know where I could find one in the southeast US?
Hope you have a wonderful and restful weekend. I hope to see you here on Monday.

Joke of the Day
A woman was waiting in the checkout line at a shopping center. Her arms were laden with a mop and broom and other cleaning supplies. By her hard glances and deep sighs, it was obvious she was in hurry and not a happy camper about the slowness of the line.
When the cashier called for a price check on a box of soap, the woman remarked indignantly, "Well, I'll be lucky to get out of here and home before Christmas!"
"Don't worry, ma'am," replied the clerk. "With a good tail wind and that brand new broom you have there, you'll be home in no time."
