The photos bring back such great memories. I want to go again. If someone has never been to Watkins Woolen Mill in Lawson, Mo. www.watkinsmill.org/ you are in for a treat.

Okay, Bud, you have to make the pilgrimage. If you ask the ranger they'll let you shoot as much as you want in the mill itself.

Dede -- You'll love it. The house is equally impressive.
