The Other Side Of The Gate
Yesterday I showed you the old route 220 that ran through our property more than a hundred years ago.
On Sunday, Ashlyn and I were taking a walk around the pond to see how things have been changing since the change of seasons. The photo above is the backside of the pond, taken from the other side of the gate in yesterdays photo. Here, you can really see the the road clearly.
Later in the afternoon, our neighbor from down the railroad tracks stopped by to introduce himself and ask permission to ride through our property while hunting. He offered my husband some venison in return.
He was a very nice gentleman, born in the same house he is living in 68 years ago! He warned us that he and his hunting buddies have been spotting alot of bear while out hunting, in the thicket across the tracks. He told us he's even been keeping a close eye on his grand daughter. Yikes!
