Father’s Day

Father/Child interaction!

I had a bluebird trying to get into my wren house, but couldn’t quite fit! I went out and bought a bluebird house, and then a wren decided to make it it’s home! But the feisty bluebirds returned 3 days later and chased the wrens out and now we have a family of bluebirds in our backyard. We have tried to make our backyard a bird sanctuary! They haven’t yet discovered the birdbath I purchased last week. It was interesting about the bluebirds, since a week ago we celebrated our 51st anniversary, and we have kind of adopted the Browns’ “I heard the Buebirds Sing” song as our theme song, since it is almost verbatim, our love story. Instead of meeting in the hills, we met in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley!!

Also Happy Father’s Day to all the Fathers out there! It is a privilege and an honor to be a Father.

Water from the Rock!

This backyard rock water fountain reminded me of Moses!

Ye Olde Pump

I suspect the pump was used years ago, but not the outhouse!

Garage Sale

Bargains galore!

Loading up and ready for the next location!

Fence Row


I decided to photograph what it looked from inside my vehicle during an automatic car wash!


With a taxi customer, we stopped to see this unique piece of equipment. We knew he was going to start mowing at 7 am. This talented Amish farmer built this horse-powered hay cutter that cuts a 24 foot swath!

Oak Hill Cemetery

View of cemetery from Port Washington Road

View of Port Washington Road as it climbs the hill. It is hard to visualize, but it is in the opening in the trees passing beside the farm buildings with the white fence. My wife loves to walk in this cemetery, and when possible, I join her, as I did this morning!
