Mount Carroll has "Mayfest" every year on this weekend and we should be pretty busy with tourists and people coming back to visit the town and family.
Mayfest is an arts & crafts festival with live music and various venders held on the old Shimer College campus.
I decided I had been away from the art show long enough, I entered a piece of metal sculpture made from numerous pieces of old rusty, odd junk, I call it "The Post-Victorian Birdhouse".
One of the first people to see it today remarked:"That looks like something Tim Burton would do." (Since I'm older maybe he has been copying ME!? hahahah! Where's my 7 picture movie deal?)
Exhibiting there jogs some people's memory that I'm "Here" and does inspire some old patrons to stop and see the house again.
