Five Late September Topics

1. Photo Friday: #downtown.

Front Royal, VA: These downtown scenes are from last October. Actually, they are the same picture cropped differently. The second one focuses on a bench in front of a pawn shop. 
2.  Heritage Weekend is starting in Hardy County, WV. These two young people were our charming guides at one of the historic sites in 2014.
Orange You Glad It's Friday


3. It's time for fall but the foliage hasn't changed much here. Here are some September flowers  that I put together with PhotoCollage.

4. We listed our spare lot with B. K. Haynes of Front Royal. They're calling it Rich Man's Waterfront at Po' Boys Price! Haynes has always had a way with words.

5. Last but not least, we have a sepia photo of my mom from around 1924.  If she were still alive, we'd be wishing her Happy Birthday tomorrow.

Love ya, Mom!

  14. The photo of the bench in front of the pawn shop and especially the man sitting there is thought-provoking. I can't help but wonder what his story is. I enjoyed all of your photos. Lovely flowers and the picture of your mom is very sweet. I'm sure her birthday brings fond memories to you of her.
