While in Illinois for the Moonshine Lunch Run, I went by to give Bertie Williams a couple more mugs for the tree. I learned previously that her husband had a house built on top to replace the missing greenery. Hard to see in the photo, but the stub of a limb facing the camera is topped off by a tractor seat!

Thanks, Ray. I remember reading somewhere over a year ago that it was being doctored a little bit. How cute is that little house! So glad that it’s still intact 🙂

The Moonshine Run has been on my “to do” list for a few years and something has always prevented me from going … hopefully I’ll be able to make it in 2012.

  1. I just added a mug on Monday, 8-2Tuesday, 8-28-2012, to honor a fallen friend, Waffle Boy Curt Gran from Wisconsin… The Mug Tree is a regular stop for me as I pass thru the area regularly… BTW, I’ve had 14 Moon ‘Burgers so far this year. 😀

    1. I never had the opportunity to meet Curt; but I’ve heard so many good things about him. He seems to be remembered fondly by all.

      I really need to make sure to get to Moonshine next year! 🙂
