I’m not a big traveler. Not that I haven’t wanted to be I just never seem to have the money to do so. I do mange to get around to my surrounding states, counties, and the cities of my state. I take pictures wherever I go and have accumulated enough for an album or two, which actually says more about my tendency to take pictures than my travel

Finding the right wine is the fun part. I chose a Rosé.
Off on another adventure; for the sake of my blog, of course.
The Old Court House Civil War Museum is a historic building with graffiti from both Northern and Southern soldiers which also houses a nationally recognized collection of over 3,000 Civil War artifacts. Situated on the Loudoun Street Walking Mall in Old Town Winchester, Virginia, this Georgian style court house was used as a hospital, barracks and prison by both sides during the War.
Self Portrait Grade: 5
This is part of the C&O Canal and I was able to get this shot two minutes after a summer downpour ended.
Before 1904 (and the addition as seen here in red brick) this was the slave quarters for a nearby farm. In 1904 Mr. Graham F. Blandy bought it and used it as a summer home. He bequeathed it and 712 acres to the University of Virgina to be used to study modern farming methods. This building now houses interns, visiting scientists and staff.
“I love spending my husband’s money” laughed Irene siting across from me at lunch.
“You’re terrible” I scolded.
“I’ve earned it.”
“Don’t you worry he’ll cut you off?”
“As a matter of fact I think we might be headed that way”
“I think he might be serious about his latest girlfriend”
“How can you tell?”
“Just a feeling”
The waiter returned with Irene’s credit card just then.
“I’m sorry ma’am, this has been declined.”
She reached into her wallet and pulled out another.
“Try this one”.
She looked at me and smiled, “this is going to cost him”.
