An Old Country Barn!


I’ve always liked old barns. When I was growing up, we had a beautiful one at Mom and Dads house. Whenever I’m on a run I always look for them. I saw this one the other day in the southern tier.

Dead Tree Designs!

Unique artistry.

I was on a run the other day near the University of Geneseo. When turning into the job site, I came across this. This is definitely unique art work.

Ran Out of Gas!

Morning Mark!
Right now in Rochester it’s 80 degrees and the humidity is 56 percent. Another hot one, yuck! All across the country we’ve been dealing with this heat wave and not much relief in sight.
And true to tradition people are running to the beach.
Yesterday while on the road I came across a family en route to the beach and they ran out of gas. (Old Chevy picture) But they called their Old Uncle Hank and he saved the day. He picked the family up and got them to the beach. (Old Caddy picture)

Rochester history.

Here in Rochester, many famed industries were started as many of you know. One of them being Bausch & Lomb. It’s founders both lived here.
On Memorial day in 1932 a monument was constructed and dedicated for Henry Lomb honoring his service in the American Civil War. Lomb served as a sergeant, lieutenant, and captain. The monument sets in a meridian on Upper Falls Blvd and St. Paul street in front of the original Bausch & Lomb plant.
For over 30 years the lights were turned off for unknown reasons. But recently, just last Monday (Memorial day) thanks to donations from local merchants, the lights were back on.
It’s nice to see history continually honored as it should be.
