Windows and Condensation



When warm most indoor air meets cold dry windows the results look like it is foggy outside.

Fog Rising



Fog from the valley, through which runs the Potomac River, at times gathers so thickly that the mountains on the far side becomes obscured to the point that one would say, "There are no mountains there."

I love living in a mountainous region...

Coming From The Barn



Mountain Thunder coming from the Barn heading for the Station to load up.

That is how it used to be. For the past several years she has been undergoing a much needed overhaul. Hopefully she will be back some time soon.

Sure hope so...

Sail Away



With Summer coming to an end, and with C-19, violence and political unrest, my wife an I would love to climb aboard and just, "Sail Away."

Alas, this ol' Salt is just to old and with no money to spare all we can do is just dream about it...

No Longer Needed




Ever notice that when something is no longer needed it is set aside, thinking it might be of some use later?

Ever feel that way about yourself? Just a thought to ponder... 🤔

Doorway #10



Doorway leading to the office of the closed Lonaconing Silk Mill.

One day back in the 50's the owners came in, sent all the employees home, and closed the mill's doors never to reopen.

It still stands today just as it was left, with personal belongings remaining. The equipment is still there and still operable. It would make a great historical sight but no one, not even the county, is willing to invest in it.

More's the pity...

Early morning coffee awaiting my cold hands on its warm sides. Hot coffee in the dark is quite satisfying; until the paper arrives, then the light comes on.

Reasons I love Fatherhood




Sunday is Father's Day. Here are three reasons why I love  this day; a beautiful wife and two wonderful kids. They truly are a God-send.

BTW, the kids photos were taken back in the late 70's when I did portrait photography, and the wedding photo was taken 51 years ago. Yeah, I really am old, and love it... ❤️
