Random Treasures

Handley High School, Winchester, VA
The Good: John Handley High School is a public school that's on the National Register of Historic Places. It was founded by a grant from Judge John Handley. This handsome school is in the northern Shenandoah Valley. 

The Random: This bust of George Washington stands in Hagerstown, Maryland. It is the work of Avard T. Fairbanks.

See all my posts that mention George Washington, hero of the American Revolution and our first President.

Since the face in the photo turned out dark, I'm including a Photoshopped version below. 

The Fun: I spotted this car near New Market. It reminds me of how it felt to take a ride just for the fun of it!


  1. These are all treasures indeed! I sometimes still take a drive just for the fun of it, always will!

  2. I have been in Handley before when I was a college recruiter. It is a neat building.
