This is an old general store which was probably operational at the turn of the century in the small village of Hadley in which I grew up in. It's right beside the post office.........just like Mayberry.I wanted to go up on the porch and look in the window but I was afraid I'd fall through the porch floor........it looks pretty rickety! The corn is as high as an elephant's eye.........
This is the farm where I grew up and where my parents still live. The sweet smell of the corn in tassel tickled my nose and made me sneeze today bringing back memories of when I was growing up I was surrounded by corn and spent most days in a sleepy Benedryl haze!
After lunch it was down to the pontoon to clean it. It's amazing how dirty a boat can get! This is my handsome first mate cleaning the back of the boat!
Then it was out on the water. I got to be the skipper today! God, I love the water!!!
A hazy view from the boat........coming up on the RR tressel.Going under the tressel.............. those are the railroad ties above us on the bridge.Ending the day with man made functional art!
A perfect hazy last Tuesday of July 2008.
