Fall tried to sneak in a few days early this year. The temperature Sat. morning was 39 degrees and Sunday morning it was 34 degrees. I’m sure there was scattered frost around. Anyway, fall officially arrived on Tuesday, and also a few warmer days, so the ladybugs and stink bugs will be cling…

It’s difficult to get some people to smile. I know. I’ve taken photos professionally and for my own enjoyment and trying to get some folks to even crack a smile over the years was like pulling teeth.

The largest native fruit in North America, the Pawpaw, has seen a resurgence of popularity in the last few years. However, along the Potomac River in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia, I’m sure the pawpaw has never left the public eye.

What makes us so unique here in the mountains of West Virginia? One distinction is the ability to create from scratch. An example might be a pieced together quilt whose beauty has increased substantially over the years. Originally created along dirt roads with limited access, traditional pat…

Fall will be arriving on Sept. 22 and the signs are all around us. Shorter afternoons, later arrival of sunlight in the mornings and the mist rising up from the river all combine to tell me autumn is almost here. Soon, the woods will be ablaze with color. Our side ditches are filled with the…

I want to start today by congratulating Pastor Mike of the Timber Ridge Christian Church on his retirement on Aug. 31 from his job as an air traffic controller. He said on Sunday, “After working for 35 years I can now dedicate my full time to my pastoral duties,” but it seems to me he has be…

Labor Day has come and gone, signaling the end of summer is near and fall will soon begin. Schools are opening up and I hope someone is keeping score to see that the right grade student gets to class on the right day, wear the right equipment and do the right thing. It will be a challenge. B…
