    Ohh, now you've done it... I'll be trying all evening to think of the 70s horror flick that started with the grave rubbing scene. :baldy

    I don't usually look inside, just stay on the bike. This one from last year had the metal water heater cabinet in the corner.

    I tried looking up Susan L. Slade, no luck. Probably doing it wrong.

    Thanks, it gets harder to find interesting (to me) subjects when the leaves come off.

    Lots of the beauty of these cold, clear winter days can't be captured by the camera very well; you have to be in it.

    :lol3 Told you I was doing it wrong.

    The first few shots in that series show why I had never spotted it before.

    Thanks for keeping me straight, George. :D

    I realized this morning that when I put the headstone info in the links Kirk posted I used Rockingham county instead of Caswell. That probably didn't help my cause any.

    nice get-together, all the kids and most of the family was there too.

    it's still strange to be at the cabin w/o Rick....
