from paleozoic seabed to chisel and hammer
hewn sandstone grains, frosted, become
a wayside. wild carrot patrons now
this little building on the highway between janesville and edgerton in wisconsin is said to be an old tavern. an ancestor who lived west of here is rumored to have had a few too many in the old establishment one night before going off down hurd road and throwing ties on a track to derail train no. 143 from madison to chicago. the latter part is not rumor but documented. the record says no one was hurt, but he did some time.
the sandstone structure is beyond dilapidation now.
