NONNIE'S PHOTO A DAY: D is for Disastrous and Destruction

A disastrous scene surprised me  as I neared the familiar corner where the old grocery store  turned flea market once stood.  The story waited to be read by me  in our town’s newspaper. It’s an age-old story waiting to be told  in many places- gas lines and water lines-  installed 50 to 100 years ago finally “give up the ghost.” 
Visit ABC Wednesday for other 'D' words. Thank you, Mrs. Nesbitt for creating this wondrous meme; and thank you, Roger, for keeping it maintained.

NONNIE'S PHOTO A DAY: Groundhog Day 2015

More snow you declare? I care not that it’s only February or that the snow is beautiful to behold! What does Punxsutawney Phil’s shadow say? Does it matter? This is the Hoosier State,  and we all know that spring is never early in Indiana. So, sit back and enjoy the sight;  after all, there is nothing one can do  about the weather except talk about it.

Hoosier Quote: “Treat spring as you would a friend  you have not learned to trust.” ~Edgar W. Howe~
