ge·müt·lich·keit

n. Warm friendliness; amicability.
[German, from gemütlich, congenial; see gemütlich.

For Father's Day I was treated to dinner at one of my favorite restaurants. But I have to step back and explain that long before it was a restaurant, it was a Hardware store that began in Evansville during the 19th century. For those of you following the blog that are younger than 20...a hardware store is not where you found CPUs, IPhones and networking cables...it is where one went to pickup an anvil, a saddle, a scythe (modern equivalent...weed trimmer), or horse liniment!

I hate to admit this but as a very young child...I remember coming here with my Dad to get supplies for our horses. The walls were completely lined with metal bins where a boy could spend hours on end searching for that special treasure to take home with him. Weird things that boys had never seen before. Something metal, with leather straps that had shiny brads or a long blade with a wooden handle or an old photograph of a man with mustache and beard outside the store watering his horse at the trough. Whether you are 17 or 70....each of us has those memories of mysterious places that we went to in our youth...not understanding what it was all about but our young curiosities were engaged and the things we saw inside were forever burned into our memory. This was one of those places for me.

At the dinner were three generations of men...once boys...me, my Dad (85) and my son (23). Strange how we all found commonalities here in this old hardware store...now a German restaurant. My Dad and I talked about those days when we went together to this Hardware store to pick up hoof trimmers...I always had to leave with something from one of those bins along the wall. My son and I counted the number of international beers the restaurant offered and we figured out that between the two of us...we had sampled 84 of the 100 beers that lined the walls...the beers that now replaced the old metal bins.

This old German restaurant held all 3 of us captive in discussions of the past and the future...three guys of different generations that for 2 and half hours talked of things we had in common...not of generation gaps or politics but of family and fatherhood.

It was a perfect Father's day for three guys from Southern Indiana.

I am blessed to have a feed mill in my neighborhood that has been there since the 1800s. It is amazing. Thanks for this post.

Kateri Joe and Jonathan said...

This post really warms my heart. It's a nice reminder of what truly is important in life. Thanks, Dan - I needed that. :-) And, of course, your pictures are beautiful as always.

Simply Heather said...

Dan, this is such a heart warming post. Getting to know Dan a little more personally is a treat, as was this day for the three of you.

Your photos, as always, won my eyes over! I just can't get over the details pulled through with this format...you are the expert, the guru, of this...Dan Felstead ☺...yes, you are - as far as I am concerned!

So nice to hear that you enjoyed a wonderful Father's Day.

Beautiful. Now you'll need to see if you can conquer the other flavors, leading to 100.

Dan Felstead said...

Sabrina...
I am glad you have a place like this...the atmosphere and history just ooze from these places.

Dan

Dan Felstead said...

Kateri...
I am sure you have these types of places in Savannah and I would love to visit them!

Dan

Karrie said...

Sounds like such a wonderful day and you couldn't ask for anything better. Happy belated Fathers Day to you!!
oh and 84 samples of beer?! I would have been rocked with that many little samples....LOL! (don't really drink anymore)

Dan Felstead said...

Heather...
As always, thanks for your kind words and yes these are HDR images. I am sort of hooked on these right now. For the past month, everything I have shot has been in the HDR format. Sort of burdensome taking three images of each shot but in the long run, I think it is worth it. There area still some areas with this format that I need to learn but making progress!

Great photos! We have an old drugstore in Harrodsburg that reminds me of this building. It has been refurbished and turned into the Kentucky Fudge Company. They kept the quaint hometown feel and now offer lunch and dinner along with ice cream and fudge of all types.

And like your building, the atmosphere and history are what makes it so special.

Dan Felstead said...

Karrie.
Good to hear from you again! Maybe I should have clarified myself...we didn't sample all 84 on Father's Day!!! Otherwise I would not have even remembered Father's Day!

I learned my lesson about drinking too heavily and taking pictures long ago in at Purdue while I was in college. One of my fraternity brothers and I had a small business in Photography to help with school expenses. One Spring, we were taking pictures for the Spring Formal at the Kappa House. We met at a bar before the event and as it was in those days...had a few too many. 3/4 of the way through taking pictures of the couples at the Kappa Spring Formal...we realized that we had not loaded our cameras with Film!!!! We had been taking blank pictures all day. Needless to say...we were in hiding on campus for a couple of weeks avoiding irate phone calls! I learned my lesson!

Dan

Dan Felstead said...

Bobbi...
I have to admit...I like the idea of fudge rather than bratwurst!

Dan

Jen said...

Das ist wirklich schoen.

;)

Dan Felstead said...

Jen...Danke!

I actually had to look it up but I just wanted to impress you!

Dan

jblack designs said...

Love the memories and the photo (as always!).

One of my favorite places as a child (this was late 50's, early 60's) was the Farmer's Alliance in tiny Goldston, NC. It was always dark and cool on hot summer days, filled with everything from hardware to bolts of fabric to shoes to buttons.

What adventures a city kid had there.

Dan Felstead said...

Jennifer...
That is exactly the type of stores I am talking about...the ones with the shoes, buttons, hardware...all things a kid could browse through for hours on end. Not knowing what they are used for but just a child's curiosity!

Dan

shabby girl said...

I do love that HDR look! Just kind of pulls you in. Is that a camera function, or a lens?
BTW, it sounds like the ultimately perfect Father's day. Could you have imagined it 5 years ago?

shabby girl said...

Oh, I think I figured it out! He he he.

Dan Felstead said...

Shabbygirl...
5 years ago...Zach would not be seen with me in public! But as I have mentioned before...now that he is finally 23...all at once I am again worthy of his presence!!

I am going to email you off line and give you a brief explanation of HDR.

Dan

Lynda Lehmann said...

Both photos have stunning tones, especially the top one with it's range of grays and warmer hues.

Sounds as if you had a memorable time together and a nice bonding experience.

Geez, I hope you didn't sample all 84 beers in one day!

Dan Felstead said...

Lynda...
Nope...not in one day! If so I would be heading for a liver/kidney transplant! thanks for the kind words.

Dan

Cynthia L. H. said...

An absolutely beautiful post, Dan! Your pictures AND the words!!! Wonderful! (Wish I was sittin' at that counter right NOW!)
:^)

Dan Felstead said...

Cynthia...
If you are ever in Evansville...you can help us finish off the other 16 brands we haven't tried yet!

Dan
