We can all sleep easy tonight now................(photo heavy)

I have bought myself a new Vera Bradley handbag, so all is well with the world now...LOL  Would you believe it is the exact same one (different colour) as the one I am using now.
I also treat myself to a new case for my reading glasses.
We also had a couple of new experiences today.  I had a snickerdoodle cookie today for the first time.  Which turned out to be a sugar cookie with cinnamon and we had a hot dog with Coney sauce on it, along with cheese, onions and sauerkraut.  It was actually pretty tasty and made a change.
I had the snickerdoodle cookie at Der Bake Oven in Berlin, Ohio.  We sat and talked to the owner Ruth for a short while; a really nice lady.

Loved all the furnishings in the seating area.
There was a ribfest happening in Berlin also on Saturday.  There was also a parade which started at 6 pm.  However the weather was iffy (rain showers) and we were tired so only stayed there until mid-afternoon.  I took a couple of photos of the rib makers stands.  The people at the After Hours Barbeque only started competing last year.  They have full time jobs; so they do this as a hobby.

Took this photo as much for the sky as anything, it was overcast, muggy and eventually rainy.
Finally a couple of photos of some chairs in the hotel lobby, very modern and very leather!!!

It's quite likely some of the ribfest vendors passed through here earlier in the summer. The food is good!

I've had snickerdoodles many times. My mother liked to make them.

Sounds and looks like you are enjoying your new surroundings very much Gill. Do you miss the farmhouse? The bag is super. You won't lose that in a hurry.

I have never had a snickerdoodle either. I wonder where the name came from? Love your new bag. I have one given to me for my birthday by a couple of friends. Enjoyed all the photos.
