Angels for you

Neighbor Brad Waggoner has set up a new website to show off his Barn Angels.

Aren't they beautiful? Nearly as beautiful as his barn. (This one's just a tiny example. Most are bigger and much more elaborate.)

When so many people these days just destroy old things, it's good to see someone putting them to good use.

And there should be a law against tearing down old barns.

Peach day

We're picking peaches.
They look great in Lynne's beautiful basket.

Water colors

At Lake Apalachia.

And the Tellico River.

No water, just crepe myrtle against the forest.

Harshaw Chapel

On a hill overlooking Murphy, the old methodist church and cemetery is on the National Register of Historic Places.

The church was built by Joshua Harshaw, who was the largest slaveholder in Murphy.

Some of the graves predate the church.

Abram Enloe is believed by some to have been the father of Abraham Lincoln.

The high stones echo Murphy's towers and the mountains beyond (too bad about the power lines).

Another night of music

Moon over the Hiwassee Dam community center

...and great acts inside.

After the show, the music moved to the neighborhood

As dusk fellthere was picking in the moonlight.

Just another sunset

The rain passed us by, unfortunately, but the sunset was still worth a picture:

Mountaintop therapy

On the way home from an unscheduled hospital stay in Gainesville, a stop at Neels Gap:

And a short walk in the woods:

Along the Appalachian Trail.

Best way to get back to normal I know.
