My visit to New Jersey will probably come to an end on Monday, (as long as the governor doesn’t seal the state borders) and I will head back to Aiken.

The week has flown by and dragged on at the same time. Funny how that goes some times.

I had the opportunity to close a few circuits of my life this week and when the time is right, and I’m not so tired, I will tell the stories.

It will probably be a few days before I do that, but I wanted to remind everyone to be careful, keep a sense of humor about you and do something fun you haven’t done in a while.

While closing one of the circuits today, I drove by the house we owned from 1992-1996 in Saylorsburg, (Monroe County) PA.  It was a rugged area, lots of fun in the snow and we had some great neighbors who we miss being with and it has been way too many years since we have seen them. (They live in FL).

The house was literally on the very top of the second ridge of the Blue Mountains and while it offered great views, the house literally shook when the Winter winds howled.

Nothing was close by, except mother nature and great people.

Seeing it brought back fond memories of being younger, carefree and enjoying everything around me.  Good memories.

Living between Aiken & Charleston,, South Carolina, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.

    I saw the picture of your old house and it brought so many wonderful memories back. It’s been way too long!!! You guys were the best part of our time in Saylorsburg! Time moves too quickly. We have to stop, smell the roses and get together.

    I remember driving through Saylorsburg a few times while going to school at East Stroudsburg. It is a beautiful part of the state.

    Your good memories serve to tickle my love of living high up – weather is more profound high up and somehow one feels more alive. That’s the upside – the downside is the fear of being blown away in a blizzard of course!
