Making a few changes...sprucing the place up


Well, I'm sure by now you've noticed the new look here at Sprawling Ramshackle Compound. No, I haven't turned this place into the Eldon Dedini swankyville you see pictured to the right. Yet.

My youngest, whose blog is now linked as Penny Pigtails, sat down today and decided this place needed a makeover. I think she did a
swell job. My favorite thing is the music widget; from time to time I'll throw in whatever pops up on the iTunes so you can have the Sound de Compound each time you visit.

That picture at the top of the page was taken by yours truly on a swamp tour in Louisiana a few years ago. Ms. Pigtails graciously photo-shopped a Gadsden flag over the Confederate battle flag that appeared in the original snapshot. The owner was wont to roll onto the porch and fire shotgun blasts over the heads of tourists, so I was told. I never got to meet him.

Excellent work on the compound and I will now have the term 'Sound de Compound' in my head for days.

The compound is looking very welcoming. If I bring down a jug, can I set awhile?
