Deliverance & Lovin' your Levi....

I know it seems "mean" that I kinda make fun of where we live. But rightfully so. I enjoy our house, feel blessed to be able to live here but right down the hill from our cozy abode...is some serious "something". It is a flood plain...so it's affordable living but I guess with affordable that comes serious degradation...it's falling apart down there.



This is the Deliverance swimming hole, complete with a big happy face ball (we couldn't figure out what that was so if you may know, leave me a comment) that takes you away to that happy place, where you can forget all your troubles and the fact that you haven't cleaned your house, yard, car for 20 years and everytime it rains (which is OFTEN lately), you go wading!



hard to believe that we are situated at the top of this hill (right hand side of the pic). that this scene is a hop, skip, and a jump away. and this is just a hint of it. It really is quite frightening! broken down bikes, tractors, cars, garbage here there and everywhere etc.

Levi really was enjoying Grandpa time...he just likes to make serious faces when the pics get started...

a classic

Good Tuesday morning! (although this will say Monday, June 30 because that is when I started it)...hope this finds you enjoying this milder than usual summertime weather! I just went out to sweep the porches, water the plants and noticed the steam rising off the pool...must've been pretty chilly last night. It's only going to get up to 80 here today...lovin' this break from heat...but it sure makes for some chilly swimming! das ok.

As you can tell, I really have nothing to say today! I hope the above pictures give a peek into what's been going on around here lately. I, in no way, mean to seem condescending in regards to our neighbors down the hill by posting those pix. I just found it funny that we live so close to that. and not that we are any better than those folks. we aren't. just wanted to give you a little taste of summertime in Deliverance. Now I need totake some pix of our actual neighborhood...

Time to get the troops moving so I may be back later on today. Have a wonderful Tuesday, folks!

Happy July to you! Love the pic of your house...the others, I am pretending you snatched off the internet add they were really taken in Alaska or Puerto Rico. Although, after living in WV and knowing people that lived like that, they are probably great neighbors...just find comfort in clutter! ;) Glad that you all are getting a break from the heat...we are only supposed to hit 89 today...so, I guess that could be called a break. But, when the pool water is still 88, I am not sure that counts. Do you have any idea what temp yours is? Just glad to peek into the windows of the Young' life. Hugs to you, T

You're so funny! Your little squirt is so funny too. He's serious, yet hilarious! I love it!

Aw c'mon! It's not that bad. Who wouldn't want to live on "Huggin Hollow" rd or at least close to it? Just keep the doors locked until you hit Central. Your house and land ARE beautiful, Laurie! PS, you'd better get some hot water in that pool before Friday... xoxo

Hopefully, just hopefully, one day, I will get to witness it firsthand like the rest of you!

Jillie and I got lost in deliverance once, or was that Donna? I can't remember......we feared for our lives.

I think that the big smiley face is a bomb from WW1 or WWII that an old soldier hauled home and painted so as to disguise it. What do you think?
