Mom and Dad went to breakfast at Cracker Barrel this morning and for all those of you that don't live in the USA - let me explain. Cracker Barrel is a restaurant and store. They have an old country time theme and sell all kinds of old fashioned candies as well as nick knacks, clothing and many other neat things that tempt you into having a much more expensive breakfast :).
After they finished their breakfast Mom and Dad stopped to look around the store and Dad saw this tucked away behind some other things and knew straight away Mom would LOVE it. It is about a 12 inches tall and is a wonderful little water fountain. The water trickles from the top out of the shell, then into the next two shells before falling into a large clam shell and over flowing into the large clam shell base. The photos really don't do it justice - there are little tiny shells embedded through out it as well as the bigger shells and all kinds of little corals. Dad was right - Mom totally loves it and couldn't wait to get it home set it up and plug it in. It is now gently tinkling away on the corner of the cupboard in the kitchen. Mom says it will also help some moisture into the air - Dad says the noise makes him want to pee :)
