Cumberland - From The Archives 12/12



Sunset highlights a couple of Spires of Cumberland, of which their are many; see #1 in this series.

I now live just a few miles outside of Cumberland and do not go in much, mainly because of the pandemic. Even without the virus floating around, everything I need is just a couple of miles away and the only time I do go into town is just to drive around and see how are things - change comes very slowly.

I hope Cumberland sees many more sunsets...

Cumberland - From The Archives 11/12



Window display depicting a Super Cruise from back in the 40's... 

Cumberland really was a fun town at one one time. Still, sometimes fun, but only on occasions. Otherwise, somewhat quite and laidback...

Strip malls and larger indoor malls has led to Cumberland's down fall as the place to go for shopping.

Cumberland - From The Archives 10/12



Sometimes the store fronts that are downtown, especially when it's empty space, can have some interesting displays in them just to attract attention to the empty store... 🙀😺

Tassels At The End



Ever have the feeling that, just like these Tassels, you are just barely hanging on?

These are times when, if you are a Christian, you know wherein lies your salvation. Looking to Jesus for peace and contentment will help to bring joy back into one's life; especially on a day like today as I celebrate my 74th birthday... 

Believe on the Lord Jesus and you will be saved...

Living In A Fog



With the way life has seemingly come off of its tracks, at my age, it seems that no matter where I go it's like living and walking around in a fog. Even at the grocery store my view narrowed to a single point.

Oh for life free of all this stress...

Steps That Lead To Nowhere





Steps, that are off the back porch, in the snow lead to nowhere. Just like life when you make the wrong choice...

Love Cookies - But...

 

 

I love holiday cookies, but so many times I get this weird feeling that I am being watched every time I put a few on a plate???

Chilly Fillup



Nothing like putting air in the tires of your car on a 20* degree day.

As weather gets colder, air contracts and can make tires under inflated allowing for uneven tire wear and possible blowouts at high speeds. 

Always check tire pressure when weather turns cold and add what is needed to bring it back to recommended levels, before driving. No matter how cold the weather...

New Year - Day 1 - New Paper




Our paper Lady is something else. She is up in her age but she takes pride in her delivery of papers. She always tosses it and gets the paper on our little 3x4 stoop. If she throws it and it falls off to the side she will always come up, retrieve it, and place it in front of the door.

This time she finally got it to stand up when she pitched it from the road. First time ever...
