Finished my taxes and caught up with my shipping duties. I should be working on updates to Vintage Lockets and Enamel Roses but instead, I am pouting. Can't seem to concentrate since I've already worked enough for one day. Dammit, I'm self-employed. I should be able to daydream a little in the afternoon if I wish.
I was poking around the web looking for unusual trips for long weekends when I read about Sharecropper Shack cottages. Did you know you can stay in an authentic, tacky, tin-roofed, shotgun shack in the Mississippi Delta? Read all about it here:
If you enlarge the picture of the Cadillac Shack,
you can see the Bottle Tree and
the Outhouse in back. I am NOT kidding.
I visited the web site of The Shack Up Inn - The Ritz, it ain't!
http://www.shackupinn.com/ Gotta admire good ole American ingenuity. Here's a promotional picture of the kitchen area of the Legends Shack. I guess you could prepare your meals in house if you want the total experience.

I don't think I'll be making a reservation there any time soon. But maybe, I can find a nice old cabin way down upon the Suwannee River and watch the lazy river go by within an hour of home. Or, we could book a hotel for a long weekend in Biloxi or Gulfport to go gambling and gorge ourselves on local seafood. Maybe a trip to Crescent or Flagler Beach would perk me up. No, probably not. :::pout::: One friend just got back from almost a month in South Africa, another from Italy and yet a third, from Portugal and here I sit, browsing share cropper cottages.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE??
I'm depressed. It's winter in Australia.
Have I ever mentioned that I hate summer?
