Civil War photographs

This is a very large file. It took a long time to open. Once you get it open, you can put your mouse on a picture and there will be a caption. Or you can double click on it and the picture will be enlarged. Be patient. Well worth your time! The second link is priceless..


You can click on any one to enlarge it. These are really a treat.............

Took this picture on Sunday when we had all those birds in the tree.

It's cold out this morning, 60 degrees out back, seems colder and looks like it is going to snow. Even Birdie, our African Grey parrot thinks it is cold. As I came in from out back- she says, "It's cold out there" she is right, had to turn the heat back on. Yesterday was a picture perfect day, never know.

For the Birds

What a productive day it was yesterday. We are finishing up the kitchen, still have to paint. I did some much needed weeding. The end of the day we had the birds fly in. Birds everywhere, it was kidda strange, thought maybe they were trying to tell us something. I guess they were just saying, it's warmer, hot diggity dog lips!

The Legend of the spring

Visited Andersonville prison - My mother always told the story of her, I think it was her Great Grandfather, was in the Andersonville prison and when he came home he was so weak that he died. I have always wanted to visit and finally did. Very emotional, especially the POW museum, with videos, photos etc.

Photo 2 - The legend-the prisoners had little water and what they did have was contaminated, one night there was a very bad storm and lightning hit the ground and water started to flow from an underground spring.
Photo 1-This picture, the soldiers graves are further apart than the Civil War Prisoners. The prisoners were placed shoulder to shoulder.
