Now for Something Completely Different: Taxidermy and Cheese Store

Back in 2008 I was working at the Toyota Plant in Woodstock, Ontario and made numerous trips back and forth to home in Kentucky.  On one particular trip I visited Sparta, Ontario and on the way went through a small village called Mapleton

Mapleton Taxidermy and Cheese Store

I was stunned to see the above sign, so much so that I had to stop and take a look see. While there, I entered the store and tried my best to get a shot of the nexus of taxidermy and cheese, as shown below:

Upon exiting I ran into Dave…he is the husband and runs the taxidermy side.  His wife runs the cheese store.  Dave was out tanning some bear hides.  He told me some interesting stories.

If you are ever in southern Ontario and making your way to Sparta (which is really a cool and unique little town in and of itself — see my Trip Journal), make sure to drop the Taxidermy and Cheese Store in Mapleton.

Travelographer Extraordinaire. I Enjoy the Ride by traveling and seeing the world around me. We are so busy speeding down the freeways of life that we miss out on the back roads and all the wonderful little stories that every place offers. So, I try to take the less beaten paths and see the real world. I have visited all 50 United States and many provinces in Canada, nearly all prefectures in Japan as well as Seaul, Korea, Shanghai and Suzhou, China and Cenu, Philippines. Also been to Mexico. Father of five, grandfather of 10 and happily married to my sweetheart for nearly 38 years. Fluent in Japanese. Happy and well traveled. See details at http://www.sumoflam.biz/SumoflamBio.htm
