photo taken from Route 219 shows what remains of the South Fork Dam.
Heavy rains in 1889 broke through the earthen breast of the huge dam releasing
a wall of water that raced down the valley to Johnstown, causing death and destruction.
Many of the victims could not be identified and were laid to rest in Grandview
...This sand sculpture of an alligator was done by a crafty beach bum while
on an outing to Virginia Beach. Note the black camera strap that
spoiled this opportunistic photo moment. :~(
smile...You'll wonder where the yellow went, when you brush your teeth
with Pepsodent! No, this is not a 'doctored' photo. This
smiling canine is Suzette, my French Poodle.
Felines...One of my all-time favorite Home Page photos. When you least
expect to find the 'purrrrfect picture'...there it is.
Gum...On a trip to Punxsutawney, a stop at an old country store led to
this find from the past. I thought these three flavors of chewin' gum were 'history'...not
so, it seems! Did you have a favorite among these three? In these politically
correct days, Black Jack would have to be sold as Jock Drakar...
Beauty...On an October trip to West 'By God' Virginia, my daughter
leaned against that tree...resulting in a 'One of a kind' photo opportunity.
pickin's...The first time I wandered into the Niner-Diner, I came across
this not so pretty skeleton that appeared so real, I had to touch
it to be sure it wasn't. 'Its/his/her' owners, Gwen and Ted Schrock say 'It's
been in the family for years.'
'Bad' idea...for a potential 'Photo of the Week' is this 20- foot-long
string of venison sausages caught on pixels during a November trip to Lancaster
County. It was one of those 'good-idea-at-the time' photos, but after downloading, these supposedly
gastronomical delights looked more like a sink-full of fat worms....
a thousand words...This was one of a series of in-utero fetal photos
I downloaded from the web and had planned to use during our abortion debates with
a certain list member who recently...and thankfully 'disappeared.'
notes...often end with From This Old House. Here
is a photo of This Old House dressed in the only measurable snowfall Home Page
Country has 'enjoyed' this winter. We're neither bragging or complaining....just
waiting to exhale!
taken by Janet Toth has been the source of laughs for months. I'm betting the
folks at the photo lab still haven't recovered from this one....LOL
last but not least...
is Sweet...The webmaster is
usually very permissive as to what 'goes' in my features, but on one occasion
we did sorta, kinda disagree and this was my revenge.
