Driving South on Highway 231

A big thank you to Mr. Parker Mount for his hospitality as he showed us around his  primitive compound along highway 231 south of Montgomery.  All these years we have been driving by wondering how those wonderful little primitive buildings got there, are they occupied  or if we could gain access to them.  It turns out that all we had to do was stop and walk in. It was Monday afternoon and he was there-stopped what he was doing and joined in with our conversation..he shared and we shared so many of our personal memories about his treasures and our more recent history living on a large 200 acre arm and ranch with an historic [rather large] Dog trog farmhouse that dated back to 1906 and even older barn where we had produced, promoted and hosted weekend Market Days for about a year [ S.E. Texas/Newton] It ocurred to me this extended project of Mr. Parker's was much like the homes and gardens that many Bloggers maintain and stage...I often think of these as a PLAYHOUSE FOR GROWN UPS...honestly ya'lll..for addicted antiquers like me there are things in his MANY COLLECTIONS displayed that will make one drool..I don't know who enjoyed it more ..the host or the visitors. We shall return!
