Random images from

lancaster... Some of them I just like. I cannot put my finger on it, but I just like them. Like this one. Train tracks. Simple. Been around for a long time. Hard working, never complaining and under appreciated train tracks.

and this guy. Have NO idea who he is, but now he's floating around on the internet. And lemme tell you, when he yelled "all aboard" the whole little town heard him. Whoda' thunk?
The water tower. I have been to this particular railroad I can't tell you how many times. Several to say the least. here it is, standing, just waiting. Anticipating the train that will be coming down the tracks for a refill.An old broken down flat bed. Sad and majestic all at the same time. Who knows what these wheels have seen. How many hobo's have ridden in these cars??
this little Amish boy, it was BLAZING hot outside. He was walking in the train yard on the macadam, with bare feet. Owwie. Seriously. I wanted to take this poor thing otu and buy him shoes!
The beauty queen.... She was less than thrilled to be going to a "smelly train yard". But, I found some flowers for her to sit by and all was good, until she found out we were not going back to the camp site immediately....
the boys... all teeth. the whole entire time. Ethan is holding a little green frog whose name is Roger,and he stays on his bed rails... He attaches himself to the oddest things sometimes. Pig was safely back at the camper...
The train. They just don't make things the way they used to, do they?

have you ever driven

down the road and something caught your eye? I mean REALLY caught your eye, like it was just begging to tell you the history it's seen? We were in Lancaster a few weeks back, and I saw this. I was not really paying attention to my surroundings, we've been to Lancaster scads of times. And out of the corner of my eye, I caught this. I knew I just needed to go back and take the picture. I asked the hubs to stop and turn around. He loves me, he really does, because at the first opportunity he saw, he turned the truck around to go back to what I'd seen.
This picture speaks to me. it speaks VOLUMES. What is it saying? Not exactly sure, but it sure is speaking.

so much to share..

but first, something that just makes me smile when I see it.
