Looking Across the Delaware River in NJ to New Hope PA.

Guys, I took this picture in the header in the town my brother lived when he passed away several years ago.  It was a perfect weather-type July day.  I hoped you would enjoy the very very old bridge.  Speed limit is 15 mph on it.  For good reason.  You almost swap paint when another car is on the way across from the opposite direction.

To the friend who asked in the last blog I did if my boy had his dreams come true.  Yes, they all came true. They did.   💗   He went on to the University, to the job of his dreams; and he got married and has wife and a son.

Look at this picture!  Any of you been to see Dolly Parton's home town?  Sevierville TN?  They have a statue honoring her in the city center.

If you're on your way to the Great Smoky Mountains, you may as well stop and enjoy the town too as it is right at the beginning of the mountains.  We here in TN. all love Dolly.  While you're in the area, try Dollywood!

Just stopped by for a few minutes.  It's been an extremely busy day for me.  Glad to be home, and I am sleepy already even though it is only 9:30 PM.  That's why I'm logging off.  Eyes are burning.

In the weeds just past my fence in back.  Velvet on his antlers. 


  1. Oh my, that photo is phenomenal; the framing is perfect and the colors!!! It could grace the cover of a magazine. I love it.

    You must be very proud of your son. He reached his goals, though I'm sure if you ask him now, he's probably made new ones.

    Have a great week!

  2. When I think of Dolly Parton, I remember the movie "Nine to Five" and she was fantastic in it! LOL!

  3. Very peaceful scenery with the bridge! I'm not familiar with Dolly Parton's work, but heard of Dollywood. The statue looks very lovely!

  4. I love this expression 'You almost swap paint when another car"!!! The header is gorgeous...something about bridges.
    Dollywood is one one of our favorite theme parks.

  7. I like Dolly Parton and that statue is lovely

  8. Beautiful photos. I would love to see Dollywood.

  9. What great photos. I have never been to Dollywood but my grandkids said they liked it as much as they liked Disney World. I have always loved Dolly Parton...I think she is a down-to-earth person with a huge heart.
    Have a great rest of the week- xo Diana

  10. I love the bridge picture. It's very detailed and clear. Everything says 'summer' about that photo.
