4500 Miles Later

 Hey, my friends, if I have seemed a little absent lately it is because I have been "down on the farm" visiting my son at his new home in Pennsylvania.
 We stayed nine days and had a marvelous visit!  The Pennsylvania countryside is simply gorgeous.  The PNW has a reputation for being green but it doesn't hold a candle and they don't even have to drag hoses around and water.
I won't bore you with all of my vacation pictures but there will be a few more to come.  There were Amish buggies clopping down the road in front, chickens, a railroad museum, Lake Erie, a maritime museum, a brewfest and I even scored a little junk.
I have never experienced jet lag before but woke up at 5:00am Portland time in spite of getting home very late last night and not getting to bed until after midnight.  My brain is so confused...
I will be making my way around to visit everybody and get caught up over the next few days.

Beautiful pictures! I know all about that hose dragging to water. We've had the driest summer here (in our part of Florida) in decades, decades! Looking forward to more of your pictures.

PS I've had an inordinate amount of spam and anonymous comments for awhile now. Others have mentioned the same problem.

Hi Kathy, what a beautiful setting your son's home is in. I love PA all my family are from there and WV. I visited every summer growing up and remember the beautiful countrysides.
So glad you had a grand time and enjoyed your visit.
Rest up and have a great weekend.
XO

Oh, I love that house! I've been to PA a couple of times when I was much younger and remember how lovely it is. Glad you had a nice trip, and look forward to seeing your latest junk!

Try 12 hour jet lag : 0
Their home is beautiful - can't wait to see more photos - did they have good junk shops?

I need a specific address! What road? How did he end up there? (And thank you for saying it's pretty ... so many people have left over the past decades.)

Wow! What a beautiful place! What a wonderful vacation that must have been - despite the jet lag!
