By the Mail Box

Given the weather and my inability to get out and about much, I thought I'd take the camera to the mailbox with me. If nothing else, it's a different perspective.

Looking back up my driveway.

This road is directly across from my driveway.


The big hay field across from the driveway.

Oh look! Lanetta on her tractor.

Lanetta is our neighbor. She is in her 70s and still farms. She used to be the athletic director at Hollins University. She is in the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame. She is a catbird and a really wonderful lady. You can see a video of her talking about the efforts to bring Title IX to the higher education system at this link. It's worth the three minutes.

There she goes to feed her cows!

Another shot of the hayfield.


  1. Love that last photo... and kudos to Lanetta for still doing things herself at her age. We should all be so spry!

  2. Such wide open spaces? Catbird? I was expecting 13 pictures!

  3. Hi, Anita, I love your photos. I used to live on a road like that, but across from corn fields and no hills. So, I guess the only resemblance is the road! Your blog header is impressive.

  4. Looks like you aren't getting hit by too much snow. Too warm? We've been a bet low on the stuff, too, but it's been bitter cold. The lines to my washing machine froze today.

  5. It can be so hard to motivate oneself to get out of the house this time of year, even when there isn't ice or snow -- which we've had since end of November. Spring can't come soon enough!


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
