Change is in the Air

The new year often brings on change. In keeping with that tradition, we are going to change the format of the blog and go to a bi-weekly publication schedule.  This way I can devote some time to other projects and interests.   We will, from time to time, post extra issues just as we have in the past. 

It's not very often that I run across any rolling stock from the old Reading Railroad Company.  This tanker is sitting in Duncansville, PA by the wye switches.

The old Patton High School is finally being demolished.  This project was started months ago but for whatever reasons it's come to halt and no one is sure when the project will be finished.



One of our new favorite places to stop is Desert Flower Wholesale, Inc. on Chambersburg Road in Biglerville, PA.   This place has an awesome outdoor statue, yard ornament, etc. collection but the real treat is when you go inside and see all the other wares for sale.

There is something here for everyone.

There is a large selection of Cinco de Mayo items.

One of several different styles of large gargoyles on display outside.

What would the blog be, especially in January, without some shots of our feathered friends, and one other local critter.

With my wife holding the spotlight I was able to shoot this opossum scavenging for seeds under the bird feeders at 7:30 in the morning.

Whew! I kept looking for my Thursday photo fix... was worried something might have happened. Glad you're fine... will adjust to bi-weekly!
