A few views from down home....


Just a few shots from home...above the railroad us children walked to and from school.  Below, Roger and my brother walking ahead of me as we walk back up to where our old home was.


All have been posted before...below is the barn we pass on the way to the old place.  This farm before our old homeplace is where Roger and I spent a 1 1/2 yrs durning our younger days.  It is my favorite place on earth.


I hope you enjoy the photos.


I hope that someday I feel secure enough about Roger's health to drive down there again.




So many times when I am on Youtube in the video below pops up and it makes me homesick...that is what led to me posting a few pics from home.

The barn and the one after it are my favorites. But the trail and the track are so nostalgic. This is a very special place. I do hope you both get there several more times. Love the song! It is partly the Lord's Prayer! Such a pretty tune.

Gosh what lovely, atmospheric photos, Rose. The railway shot is superb: beautifully composed, and the black and white makes it timeless. I can tell that you've left a little bit of your heart in that old farmstead; and I hope and pray that Roger will be well enough soon for your to retrace your steps back to your old home.

Lovely photos, hope you will be able to go back soon.My best friend and I walked the tracks to her house and now the tracks are not there and she has passed.

Something tugs at our heart's string when we walk down memory lane. The video is not available. Have a blessed Sunday!

I loved seeing your photos of this beautiful area where you once lived. The barn is beautiful. There are certain places that will always tug at our hearts and I hope that you get to visit there many more times.

I am privileged to have seen that area --with Neal and Patti... I can understand why it is so beautiful to you--with so many great memories... I didn't realize that you and Roger were high school sweethearts. How old were you when you got married?

Don't think you saw my FB posts --but we just got home from our Anniversary trip... I did a blog post today--but have several shots on FB...

Hugs,
Betsy

Wonderful photos and I love your stories of "back home".
I kinda feel the same about blogging---I have met through the blog a lot of people---like you for one---and the honesty of the friends we make.

What a beautiful place. Sure hope you get back there again soon.
I lived by tracks too and used to play on them all the time when I was a kid.

I used to enjoy walking tracks out in the open countryside. Your images brought back good memories of days gone by. Love the Autumn foliage too
