You may not have heard of Romeo, but I'll bet you've heard of one it's more famous citizens, Bob Richie. No? Maybe you know him by his stage name, Kid Rock. I'll bet you thought he was from Detroit. Nope, he's a country boy from this charming little town.

The red brick of the church against the brilliant blue sky is striking, isn't it?
I'm not sure if this is still a hardware store, but I love the old sign painted directly on the brick.
This time capsule is buried in a small community park. It is scheduled to be opened in 2060.
If they had been open, we might have been tempted to stop in for some ice cream.
If you're thinking of visiting, you can fly right into Romeo. It's one of the smallest airports I've ever seen. Remember the airport on the show Wings? Romeo airport is even smaller. I would have taken
a picture of the terminal, but it's a half mile down the road, past the
hangers and runways.
After we left Romeo, we took the back roads home, where there are dozens of farms. I never get tired of looking at barns.
I'm not sure that this old barn would still be standing if it weren't for all the trees growing in, around and through it. I think they are actually holding it up.
I wonder what they grow at this farm? They have several huge barns and lots of silos.
As you can see, the field has already been cut down.
I don't know what this is called, but they were filling it when we drove by. I think that's corn
This road leads back into the town we live in. I snapped this picture because I was amazed at the
cloud formations. It reminds me of ocean waves crashing into the shore.
If only we were having a party....
Growing up in the suburbs, I never ran across a sign for deer processing.
Around here there seems to be one on every corner.
Back at home, we did a little wandering through the yard. We were surprised to find
this cayenne pepper still growing.
When the wind blows, the leaves on this sumac look almost like flames.
Another little pop of color. This spiderwort is still blooming among the fall leaves.
After the kids got home from school, the sky started to get dark. We had to hurry out to get
our pumpkins for Halloween.
We ended up at a roadside stand where pumpkins were $3.00 each. Our daughter put
the money in the "honor box".
