Monday Morning





I had to run some errands in Charleston this morning.  I took a walk around town while I waited for the store where I needed to go, to open.

Extremely Random


Two shots that I like.  And I'm probably the only one!  The first one is the back of Gorby's Music in South Charleston.  I like the colors.  The second is of Kim.  She's not putting on make-up (she doesn't need it).  One of her earring holes was sore and she was working on that.  She'll be 48 next month and her skin's still pretty as-can-be.

Pictures in a Drawer





These are just some random shots from today.  School starts Thursday, so today was the last free weekday Molly and I would have together for the summer.  We had a good time.  We ran some errands for Kim, had lunch and dessert at the mall then walked downtown to one of her favorite stores, Stray Dog Antiques.  After that we went to the Cultural Center to visit our cousin, then on to the Capitol Market to look around.  We bought some Pluots there.  We haven't tried them yet but they look good.

Ben Griffith

Ben was the first paid firefighter for the Saint Albans Fire Department after it became a paid department in 1952.  He just recently turned 91.

Changing Skies




I took these photos just a few minutes apart and from almost the exact same spot.  It's not a super scenic spot, but it's where we were when the sun was setting.

Sweet 16






Molly didn't want what you would think is typical for a 16 year birthday party.  She wanted to go shooting and swimming, and that was fine with us.  She invited one of her best friends to go with us, and we went to a nice range near Montgomery and shot for a few hours.  Then we had Frank's Pizza in Montgomery.  After that we went to Cotton Hill on the New River and swam and jumped off rocks and explored around for a while.  We left there and went to Fayette Station and walked up the river to the next to last rapid on the lower New and floated back to Fayette Station in our life jackets.  We topped off the day with a giant birthday cookie at her grandparents house.  It was a great day.

New River Fireworks ll



A couple more shots from Saturday evening.

New River Gorge Fireworks


We hiked out Long Point Trail yesterday evening to watch the fireworks show that Adventures on the Gorge put on.  I've got a few more but this is the only one I had time to work on this morning before going to work.
