Life in Christian County, Kentucky... History and Old Stuff...



Random images from a random sort of day--


Board fence
Wandering around behind the Valvoline oil changing station, I saw this board fence framed by foliage. Meanwhile, my car enjoyed a refreshing change of motor oil and a replenishment of its other vital fluids.

Short bar

Old doors
These aged doors are part of a building that sits behind the Citgo parking lot in Crofton, Kentucky. Crofton is a small town about a dozen miles north of Hopkinsville, and it's the epitome of a "whistle stop". The front of this building is on Crofton's main street and it faces the train tracks that pass right through the center of town.

Short bar

Doughnuts
These doughnuts were abandoned in front of the deli counter at the grocery store -- evidence that someone's dietary conscience faced down his/her tastebuds and won.

Short bar

Bean field

This is just another soybean field in Christian County with a handsome set of Mennonite farm buildings in the background.

My son is always begging me not to take pictures anywhere that will embarass him. ;)

Thanks for your comment, lone beader. It's nice that you stopped by. Did you notice that the door on the right in the photo seems to be upside down?

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
