On the Rustic Road Again




I've been taking my mother on Rustic Road trips before the world as we know it ends or my car goes into a coma. There's a lot to see if you like cows.
Speaking of coma, although I've been trying to eat less candy, this old timey candy store exists a short and pleasant drive away.


B&B's in Montello, bumping dieters off the wagon for 47 years

And speaking of segues, did you know the owner of Segway drove off a cliff on a Segway in 2010? 

"I'm concerned about you."

What was I saying? Rustic Roads. Here are some furry red cows we found on Rustic Road 96 outside Cottage Grove yesterday. No, I don't know what kind they are, you're on the internet Google "what kind of cow is this" and let me know what you find.

Peeking out at RR 96

Tell me what these woolly bullies (or flossy Bossies) are and get a B&B's Country Store postcard with...my fondest regards. Oh yeah, that candy is long gone.


The 2.3 mile Rustic Road 19 is more like a long driveway

Is it wrong to crave a burger? Possibly. Is it wrong to think the Pack will pull out of their nosedive tonight? Yes. But don't say that to Preston, one of the sweetest Pittie mixes to wear a Clay Matthews jersey. Like the guy from Merrill who is wearing shorts until the Packers win, Preston represents that Cheesehead loyalty which says, "Slow news day."

Has Trump's popular vote for ya right here

  1. My dairy farmer husband has no idea what kind of cows those are, but I'd say that steer is a Red Bull.

  2. With or without vodka? That pic of you guys, OMFrickin'Gawd. I never saw how much Clayton looks like his dad! Holy shite.

    1. I'm not so sure about being on the road in the winter though, what about you?

    1. We passed a dog park on our way down the road last Sunday and there were too many sweet pups to resist, LFi.

  5. I knew the owner of Segway drove off a cliff but he was not the inventor. I don't think it's wrong to crave a burger. But, what kind of meat? Beef? Lamb? Camel? Ostrich? Venison? Oh, too much to choose from. I'm getting hungry again.

    1. Lamb for me, venison on occasion, Camel? I'm sure there are jokes about smoking a Camel in there but too lazy to find one. Smoke 'em if you got 'em?

  6. Great collection of photos! Good message, too!

    1. I think Bob's message is that he's worried I'm losing it and Preston's message is that this is what you get when you elect a whiny orange bully.

  8. Highland cattle are a Scottish cattle breed. Remember we saw some when we stop for corn?
    Where is the candy store?
    Oh and YOU ARE A GOOD DAUGHTER.

    1. Now I want some Stoneman's sweet corn. I think I have some photos of those cows, cattle, whatever. There is one online that looks like Oliver, hahaha. Yip, yip, moo.

    2. Are you saying the RR 96 cows are also Scottish Highlander's?

  9. The name “Rustic Road” conjures up scenic beauty and rustic simplicity in the countryside like the photos from your road trip.

  10. I have always thought that a Segway would be a cool way to get around in large spaces. I fear that the new models that only come to the knees and have nothing to hold on to would put me in the hospital in very short order. Yep, the candy store would be tempting but an ice cream store would be my downfall. Have a blessed Ruby Tuesday Too.

    1. I don't know, Driller, you seem to be all about Christmas and then there's that glaring photo on your side bar which makes me think you need a hug.

  11. Agree with Anonymous, you are a good and thoughtful daughter:):) Wow, that candy store - a dangerous place, I would get addicted in no time. Sharing your experience from the heart with SEASONS is always very much appreciated:):)
    That bulldog's T-shirt made me smile! I'ld rather have another dog, but in my humble opinion that is what this country needs right now, because it has gone on a downward slope looking like it would crash into the ravine last 8 years. For a year I had been very seriously thinking on moving back to Holland, but now even though it will take some years, I'm saying with Oprah I can see hope again. Have a great week!

    1. I'm not sure my mother would agree, JSG, unless she had a handful of Black Jack Taffy. It's been around forever and I wish more people appreciated its store front. Wouldn't you know it, the Pack won! Yeah, Preston. I see nothing but disaster confirmed by outrageous behavior and conflicts of interest, but maybe that's just me. (It isn't.) You'd have to listen to everyone telling you what a collection of idiots we are if you move, wouldn't you rather stay at home and hear it from your fellow Americans?

  12. Sounds like fun times, and I'm sure it makes your mom happy to go on those jaunts with you. I love when getting the chance to hang out with my daughter. The old time candy store would probably be my go to place. haha

    1. Yes, she needs to get out of the house whenever possible, with my dad it was every day.I felt like buying the whole jar of coconut crunch bites, will have to put them up next post. I can't think of any other place to buy Black Jack Taffy in person.

      Delete
    2. Just your commenting Black Jack Taffy made my senses and taste buds go 'Yeah...remember that black jack candy as a kid at the penny candy store'. Memories... :)

    3. My grandpa used to hide it around the house when we were kids and everyone aged fifty on up remembers it with fondness. I came close to buying them out at B&B's. I got large candy gift bags full for my 95-year-old aunt's birthday and my other aunts immediately grabbed bags for themselves, lol.

  13. I love road trips. And Willie Nelson. Candy, thankfully, not so much :-)

  14. Oh my god I never thought I'd feel sorry for apit bull, but I do now. (No opinion aobout the team he's supprting, I know nothing about sports, but he looks so uncomfortable with those pants. About like the guy wearing the shorts probably is without them.

    Thanks for the nice version of the full-time RVers theme song! Having been one of those for over ten years, you've got to know I love roadtrips. And of course Willie -- that goes without saying.

    1. Oh nooo, Sallie, just a jersey, so no pants for this guy, it's all hanging out there, haha. Not a Packer fan, don't blame you this season, although they won after I posted this. I envy you and would adore traveling like that. Good for you Sallie.
