Rubbish Tuesday & The Barn Collective Combo 4

click on photos to enlarge
This old place sits up on a hill in Fincastle. Right next to a church. I can't think of the name of the road but I know how to get there. It seems like it has been vacant since I've lived here. I wonder what is up with it?

This view is from Little Timber Ridge in Buchanan...what a view!

Linking with Rubbish Tuesday & The Barn Collective

Hope to see you back on Friday for Willy Nilly Friday 5!

Happy Veteran's Day!
And now I want to take a second to appreciate my boys Braden and Dalton. In the U.S. you know how the Veterans pass out poppies for Veteran's Day...well, it was over the weekend and the Veterans were set up at Kroger. I gave the boys a few bucks to run in and get the couple of items I needed while I was waiting in the car. I watch them come out and go to the table set up by the Veterans. I watch with pride as they hand the money they have leftover to the elderly gentleman and in return get their poppies. This is something I have done every year. You know, our children really are sponges and pick up on these things when we don't really think they are even paying attention...well, they really are.

  15. Great shots, and I commend you for teaching your boys about the veterans and Buddy poppy day- I have stood behind that table with my dad handing out poppies and you would be surprised at the people who are hateful about it.
