 Every time I or Neal are down home, and if we are up to our old home place, we take a picture of the old chimney.  It is all that remains of our old home. 
What is bad, we don't have a single picture that shows the old homeplace.  We are sure a few must exist some place, but none of us have any.  We would love to have one showing the house, and I would love to have one showing the house from a distance, which would also show the outbuildings.

wow. so interesting. I always wonder about the home and people who lived there when I see a chimney like yours. I hope you find a photo of what once was.

is there a local museum in the area of the old homestead? They may have photos of one, I know ours has history of farms in our area.

A fine shot of what remains of the old home. The chimney is proving very durable. Perhaps someone will come up with a picture of the home earlier than you don't have.

I love this! What a shame you don't have any photos of your house. I know how you feel. I don't have really good ones of the house I grew up in either. I particularly wish I had some inside shots and shots of our land. It is all still so real in my head, but nothing to show what I remember.

Is that a tree growing out of the chimney? I'm glad you at least have this picture to remind you!

I hope you can find a photo of it someday.

A tree with brick bark! :)
I have one photo of my childhood home. There are other photos with glimpses of it but only one of the house itself and it's an arial view.
I wish I had a photo of my grandparents home. I spent so much time there. I can 'see' it when I close my eyes but a photo to treasue would be nice.

Thank you for all of your nice comments. So sorry you don't have any pictures you can find of the house. Thinking that the chimney is still standing is certainly an indication that it was well built. It's an excellent subject for photographs.

C'mon Rose...you spilled the beans. I was going to put that picture on my blog and see if people could guess what kind of "tree" it is. :)

Such a pity that you don't have any photos! But you certainly do have memories and that's probably most important. :)

On first look the chimney resembles a person. The green stuff growing from the top is hair; the green stuff growing at the bottom is clothing. I can even make out two eyes just under the "hair" and the break where the color changes from dark to brown to almost white is an open mouth. I hope you see what I see and don't think I am crazy LOL

I have a new blog, Rose. The address is http:daysremembered.wordpress.com
