Portsmouth also has a small but beautifully maintained military museum. The owner Mike is a veteran and collector who has put together a personal, regional as well as international in scope exhibit. I was blown away by the WW1 trench art..... how artists used the discarded shells from the front lines.

We wound up yesterday afternoon at the Simon farm outside of Portsmouth. Five generations of Simons have lived here since the homestead was founded in 1864. Kitty Wells fan John Simon is a Sorghum maker and grows the sugar cane like crop on his land. Each year there's a festival around making the syrup. We got a little bluegrass band and some dancers to perform in the 150 year old barn.
