A Welcome Scene

For Beauty and for Rest

Mountains

And Valleys

September 18, 1966 I met my dear wife, Alice in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, at the beginning of our freshman year of college! Now married 50 years, we look back and see mountains and valleys which we crossed. What a wonderful journey!!!

The song which somewhat depicts our romantic beginnings!

To continue this journey we are leaving Friday morning for NYC, and then flying to Rome on Saturday evening for a 9 day cruise, visiting Italy, Greece and some Greek Islands. Thanks, Alice for letting me journey through life with you!!!!!

P.S. The above photos were taken on the Neiderhorn, in Switzerland in 2013.

Life is Beautiful

Pillow Talk

Fighting Creek Furniture

I thought this vendor had some unique furniture pieces at reasonable prices. I also did love the t-shirt, and cups! I also thought their name was quaint!

My mother always marked a circle in the center of the cake before cutting the cake, so the pieces wouldn’t have a point on the end! Her she is with her 96th birthday cake!

Time to blow out the candles with her Great Grandson, whose birthday we were also celebrating.

Grazing

Horse grazing in the pasture field, a typical sight in Holmes County, Ohio.

Amish Country School House

Outhouses (toilets) for Girls and Boys!

Backstop for the softball playing field!

I remember these items well from my grade school days. In those days most of the people in the countryside had one-room school houses within two miles from their homes (at the farthest).
