AROUND-AND-ABOUT.....


I found fences and pretty skies from a couple of months ago....


and a few historical markers.  We try to stop at as many as we can to read their history.


We live about 15 to 20 minutes away from here and have visited often.

  2. I like the huge tree and the wall. It's quite a skill to build a wall from stones. I had a go once and had stones falling all over the place... smiles.

  12. I like the stone wall fence- and wonder how long ago it was built. How neat to live close to this old battlefield- pieces of history that are slowly being lost and forgotten.

  18. The Henry House...this wouldn't be in Harrisonburg, Va. would it? We live right beside it if it is. Several of these places look very familiar to me!!! I love the big tree. And the grass beyond the wall in the first picture is so perfect that it looks like a golf course.

  19. Hello There, I enjoyed your post today. I have always wanted to visit Manasses. Maybe someday I will get there. Love the rock fence...

    Sorry I haven’t been around much lately. I do try to read blogs—but just haven’t commented very much lately like I usually try to do. Please don’t give up on me. Hopefully my life will be back to ‘normal’— whatever that is (ha), sometime in January.

    I did get a cortisone shot in my knee —which has helped with the pain somewhat. In January, I will most likely have meniscus tear surgery…. BUT—in the meantime, I plan to have a fantastic Christmas —and hopefully get to see my kids/grands… God is Good.

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  22. Stone fences have a deep emotional appeal. I guess I'm not the only who feels it...
