Old Porcelain Door Knob

About 2½ inches in diameter.

Breezy Morning

Very heavy slushy rain as well. Needless to say, it's cold out there, not that I have been able to get out as the wind direction means that opening the door is not a very desirable thing to do. I seem to have lost a wheelie bin. No sign of it through any of the windows. It will turn up at some point. The bird feeder has also vanished. None of the cats- not even Tabby, have suggested that they might want to go out today. Generally Tabby is very insistant that he be let out no matter what the weather is doing…

An 'Old' Tin

Actually it's an aluminum tube. It is 4½ long and an inch in diameter. With a plastic snap on lid. Probably not all that old either, though it has been knocking about my place for over 30 years at least. Handy for keeping very large needles in.

Old Ship's Timbers...

...that were being used as a fence corner post. The fence is fairly well gone now. The metal railing is a hand rail alone a small footpath, running down from the road to a house off to the right of the picture. There is quite a drop from the road at that point.

Windy Day...

...but not as bad as forecast- yet anyway. At least the system has carried on working.

Last Night...

...got a bit breezy. I am surprised the system has kept working considering the amount of sleet and hail being thrown at it in the cold wind. (29 Jan '16)

My Grandfather...

...Louie, is the young man on the right. The couple are his aunt and uncle, with whom he was living at the time. They are standing outside their house near St Florain, Alabama. The information that I have puts him at about 16 years old, so the photo would have been taken around 1912. The photo is mounted into the back of a very thick, and very convex glass. The frame is wood with a 'plaster' decoration on it. It probably had a 'gilt' finish at one time. From what I remember, it is probably about 12 inches a…

Blackhouse Ruins -1

These are at the end of the village. This is looking onto the end of the old house. In the summer when the weeds have grown up, there are 100's of rabbits living in and around it. That high bit of peat behind and to right gives an idea of the amount of peat had been cut away from the area over the years. Taken early one moring in the low sunlight a couple of years ago as I was walking out onto the moor passed them. I never got around to getting any better shots.

Blackhouse Ruins -2

From a slightly different angle, which shows how they were long and narrow in shape. It would have had a straw roof covering.
