Signing Off Facebook

Yeah, this ruggedly rustic relic of a rebel is leaving Facebook...

Goodbye wacky Facebook

I'm off to join the real world.

I'm going to be - sane once again.

Because this Facebook journey, has tried to turn my whole world upside down...

Twelve years ago I began this journey in October 2008.  It is only fitting that I end it on the last day of September, twelve years later.

Not just deactivating but deleting my account completely. Facebook is no longer fun, it is time to go.

I feel good about this decision and am firmly convinced that  this is God's will for me in going forward.

I am still on Twitter at @GCRiffey and at Riff's Christian Journal - a monthly article/essay I write with a layman's view on Christian Themes focusing on Reformed Theology, which I started in 2009.

I still have Riff's Photography Journal, presently with 1413 posts and photos since 2008...

I will sign off for the last time this evening.

Eerie Night View

An eerie night view of the house across the street. Glad this view did not happen on Halloween... 🙀

A Summer Song

Trees swayin' in the summer breeze
Showin' off their silver leaves
As we walked by
Soft kisses on a summer's day
Laughing all our cares away
Just you and I
Sweet sleepy warmth of summer nights
Gazing at the distant lights
In the starry sky
They say that all good things must end some day
Autumn leaves must fall
But don't you know that it hurts me so
To say goodbye to you
Wish you didn't have to go
No, no, no, no
And when the rain
Beats against my windowpane
I'll think of summer days again
And dream of you...

Chad & Jeremy
A Summer Song Lyrics

Windows and Condensation

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

However, the fog is on the inside of your own window. Most fascinating, I do believe...

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...

What Makes A Home

They say that, "Love makes the world go round." That May be but where love abounds from a house a home love makes...
