Horsing Around

Image
These big animals have long been replaced by machinery.  Yet there are a handful of people who still treasure these mighty titans.


I strayed outside of Prince Edward County into Hastings County and found this Country Fair happening in the Township of Melrose, Ontario.

These great animals weren't horsing around when it came time to pull the load.  Any guesses as to how many pounds they were pulling on the sled?

For those of you playing along, the answer to the weight on the sled is at the bottom of this post.








An astounding 9000 lbs. !

Seeing it...

I look for inspiration from practically anything or anyone.  Beauty surrounds us, we just need to see it.

What's in a Name

Image
Do you ever wonder how they come up road names.  Do they sit around a big table and discuss at length what road, avenue, street and lane name they can drum up?  I wonder how they settled on the above name.

Be good to yourself.
At this stage in my life, I often find myself saddened by the ugly in the world.I'm not naive, humankind is often far from being kind.I love hearing about good news stories.Showing someone you care/love them is important.I advocate that women learn personal self-defense.

Rural Mailboxes

Image
They line-up alone and in clusters on the sides of rural routes all over.  They are weathered and battered by time, snowplows and unfortunately vandals too.  Some are colourful, even unique while others appear new, perhaps a replacement or simply a new owner wanting a fresh start with something that reflects their style.
