This is the house I grew up in and bought from my Mom 5 years ago after my Dad passed away. She still lives with us although being outnumbered 3 to 1 (wife, mother, dog) by females is not easy. We live just north of Pittsburgh and this pic was taken on a beautiful Memorial Day.

Have not left the house today other than to go to the store,but here is our humble abode. The bucket you see is a little project my wife and I did today,there was a holly bush and I dislike them , so i got the trusty chan saw out, and cut it down. Then the misses had me dig out around the stump and we put in some annuals. She designed the tub display,I kind of think it is cool.She comes up with some off the wall ideas at times.She has the ideas and I provide the brawn.

For all that live in the midwest or the south. You all have some really nice picturesque landscapes out there, but I'm from the big city and I may need to adjust if I were to move out there. What high paying job profession out there?

Tree stumps are a pain in the a$$.... that's a great way to deal with them. My compliments to the wife's idea and your brawn. Might have to steal that idea. [thumbup]

I feel lucky where I live.. Which is right at the edge of London and the countryside....

Just took some snaps out the car window on the 5 minute drive to my inlaw's.

Here's the village pond...

This building is a kind of holding cell. The stage coaches carryinh prisoners to London would stop here, lock up the prisoner over night and stay in the local Inn, still called The Cage to this day. Put this into perspective, it was built before Columbus set sail...

Here's the old part of the village...

Always been fascinated by these types of Old World roofs - I imagine it takes highly specialized tradesmen to work on them. They do seem to be durable and long-lasting, though; in contrast, here in Colorado a brand new roof may need repair within five years, due to the harsh winds and hail. Roofing is big business in every town around here...

Also note in these images the presence of the traditional 'White Van Man', always such an integral part of any journey on an English road now. [laugh]

It's about 88 F today. Here's the view out of the back of my shop.

We own the part that isn't mowed in the foreground. My neighbor put a couple of horses on it this year so I get to watch horses running around.

And although this was taken several years ago and not from my current home, I'll add this for emphasis:

Love looking at European photos. Makes me want to visit many places. Nothing really to look at here. We're in the city and old residential houses is what we see. Out away from here is cornfields. We're the CornHusker state.

Well come and have a look around, you're always welcome.

I expect I'll be over in London for work in November, and I know from experience it ain't gonna be as pleasant as in the summertime photos [laugh]

I'm looking forward to watching the Tour de France on tv again next month though - live coverage is usually 10pm to 2am here but on the weekends that's just fine and the scenery always looks superb.

Outside of the humidity in TN I just love to be there. Most all of my Mothers kin are from TN and many friends still. The older I get the less I seem to tolerate the humid weather. Looking to New Mexico to dry out some maybe. Also WY.

 

I'll see if I get out on one of the bikes this weekend for some shots of my area (not Des Moines city I find that totally boring). Love the close by countryside now.
