lovin’ our town

Here’s some pictures from our little town, USA.  I love living here.  This is where Sunny grew up.  1200 people.  We, the town, work hard at community and it shows.

This is the Christian Church right across the street from our house.  I look out my front window from where I am typing and this is the view—minus the rainbow today!

A couple of Saturdays ago they sponsored a harvest festival in the park for the town.  It was a free event and they had the works—barbequed beef, hotdogs and hamburgers.  Face painting, tons of games, horseshoes, drawings.  Their worship team played in the band shell and when they weren’t playing they had praise and worship music playing thru the speakers.  I believe around 400 people showed up, not bad for a town of our population.  We all hung around all afternoon just visiting and having fun.

This is obviously our water tower right smack dab in the middle of our beautiful park.

Many years ago Sunny helped his dad develop what they called Eddy Acres.  It is about two blocks of land they plotted and sold.  There are three lots left and we are buying them from Sunny’s mom.  Three years ago, because of the debt we were in, I would’ve never dreamed we’d be buying land to be able to build a home on.  Today, we are just a smidgen away from being completely out of debt including the lots.  God amazes me!

This is the view from our land.  Isn’t it wonderful?

And I leave you with the following humorous pictures.  The former mayor owns our typical small-town motel.  There is a convenience store directly across the street, and he is fed up with travelers letting their dogs out to do their business on his property. This just struck me as funny!  Bushy, as he’s known by, is a fun, loving nut-of-a-man who always wears overalls.  I could just picture him out there in a momentary fit of rage with his spray paint doing ‘graffiti’ on his own property!  What next, the pellet gun?!  The pics show just three but there are 6 of these cement blocks.  One of them just says “No pooping”—forget dogs only, man, I’m covering everything and everyone! 


It’s All No Poopin’ Good!



  1. Your town is beautiful and sounds like a great place to live! I'm so happy for you about the land!

  2. I believe what you have there is a no poop zone!

  3. Love that top photo!

    That's wonderful about being nearly out of debt!

  6. Love the pictures Brenda AND love the very wise comment you posted on my blog today!


  7. I love this beautiful blog design, and I loved, loved, loved the pictures. So fun and funny!!!

  8. Sounds like a great place to live - and to get out of debt. What a blessing!!

    Love love the signs - though it's kinda yucky to have to mess up your own property like that! What a bunch of dumb people do stuff like that, requiring such drastic measures.

    I am so far behind on reading and writing posts! It's been two weeks, which is the longest ever in my 5 plus years of blogging. Hopefully tonight I'll get something written while I sit here in Maine while the son is watching a football game.


Thanks for taking the time to visit with me. I enjoy your comments very much. :)
