Saint Albans Sunrise


From the roof of the fire station.  We had just come back from a call as the sun was coming up, so I headed up to the roof to watch the sunrise.

Happy Thanksgiving!!



Our friends invited us to have Thanksgiving dinner with them today.  It was great!  Tomorrow we're gonna do it all over again at my mom's.

We've got a lot to be thankful for!

Muddy Mess


This is Molly and I after we fixed a leak under the house.  Kim had a pizza fixed and waiting on us when we got done.  It was awesome.

Shay Number 5


This is the oldest fully operational Shay locomotive and it's still used today by the Cass Scenic railroad.  It was bought in 1905 by the West Virginia Pulp and Paper Company in Cass, WV.  I took this picture while My daughter and I were passing by on another train that was on it's way to Whittaker Station.  I like this picture even though it's not in focus and there's some motion blur and the composition isn't that great.  Usually I would just delete a photo like this but it reminds me of an old photo that could have been taken anytime between 1905 and now.  I like it because there's nothing in the photo that would give away in what time period the photo was taken.

Guthries ?


A building on Dickinson Street in Charleston.  I thought the sign read "Guthrie's Pub", when I took the picture, but now that I look at it I can't really tell what the last word is.  I'll have to ask Kim, since "midtown" was one of her beats, years ago.  Tom Hindman, do you know what it says?

This is in the "Street Level" style.
