The Rest of the Story

This week on Good Fences I shared a fence
from this Pennsylvania Century Farm.
Here is the rest of the story.

Reflections Inside Out

This week's 'reflections' appear in our windows
from the outside on a sunny day.
This one is a combination of and outside reflection
and an artificial branch of leaves in a vase inside.

Pretty blue sky here

This is my favorite; again with the combination
of the outside and the inside.

Once again the blue of the sky stands out.

Especially like the muted reflection
behind the closer trees in this one.
At first I didn't think this one worked
and was not going to include it
Upon further reflection (pun intended)
it took on a charm of its own.
If you look very closely you can see large pine trees
behind the oaks.
I would even use it as a background or texture in a craft project.

One For All and All for One

Favorite = Landscapes remind me of the vastness of our world.
Sky = Beautiful Blue Sky



Wheely Neely Friday Five

 No, not a typo. Just a play on Willy -vs- Wheely

1.  January 29, 1886 - The first successful petrol-driven motorcar, built by Karl Benz, was patented.

2.  This week our son needed to borrow my vehicle
but didn't want to leave me stranded. (bless his heart)
There was a day I would have been thrilled to get behind the wheel.
But . . .

3.  Back in the Day - my first set of wheels

4.  A little nostalgia. How our kids loved their first 'Wheels'

5.  “Always focus on the front windshield and not the rearview mirror.” Colin Powell

Decisions, Decisions

Which way would you choose?
In reality Swamp Road is the more scenic
with great pastoral scenes including sunsets.

Dairy Farms abound in our area.
This one holds the distinction of being a
'Pennsylvania Century Farm'

Newer Models Inside? 012616

Historic items are sometimes referred to as 'treasures'.
That's what I think of when I see older machinery 
that has 'history' to someone.

Blue Monday 012516

Last Thursday I took a jaunt around the country roads
to collect photos before winter storm Jonas arrived.
Turns out he was a no show here.

I believe this is a drop off spot for newspaper bundles
to be delivered by rural drivers.

Seems Washington was needed a compass while passing through.
These signs appear in all directions on the back roads here.

Salt n Pepper Shakers from my Grandmother's collection

A thrifty find from the RG
the white edging on the flowers is raised.

Drive Thru Barn

Came upon this 'drive thru'
but couldn't find where to order ;) 
The barn itself has nice symmetry
and I like the pine branch for effect.
