We had the privilege of visiting with friends from the USN, Dan & Joan. Dan was my boss in Albany, Georgia and key West, Florida. We were also friends. They were great family folk and had a great family. Joan is one of those wonderful down to earth folk, who keeps a house looking like it is out of this week’s Better Homes and Gardens. Get this wonderful lunch or Dinner we were served:
We didn’t get many pictures, but plan to see them and some of their kids before we leave. They took us to a chocolate world, “Miesse Chocolates, est in 1875”, presently owned by Tracy, their daughter.
This was the retail store, later they took us to the chocolate factory. Dan & Joan have a beautiful home that they continue to improve. This is the back patio. It was a great visit.
I am always amazed at the folks in this area on wash day. In our early lives, we went GREEN, we used solar & wind power to dry clothes. Do you still hang clothes? Check these out:
I had to get this in the mirror, that last one was over the small road.
Notice these clothes are hung using a pulley and return wire. They go high, but the winner is the last one, those are hung HIGH!
Looking from the barn, over the corn, what is going on?
The work horses say this is our day off, don’t push it. But below the girls rest in the shade before the evening milking. They are soon going to work.
This is a beautiful place to spend a day riding and with good friends.
More friends coming down the road.
Thanks for coming by the log. I know you could be other places, we appreciate the visit.
Why didn't Noah Swat those two mosquitoes?
I believe this is a 1955/56 Porthole T-Bird. I shot this across Dan’s arm, driving into Lancaster. We passed two T-models, two old men showing off, I couldn’t get the camera in time.
