The Pups

I apologize profusely for disappearing. I am recovered from my fall, but still having an issue with my knee and I'm suffering from a bad case of the winter blahs.  Hopefully spring will bring sunshine and a better attitude. Thank you for all the emails and expressions of concern. 

A Fergus and Findley update. Unlike me, they do love the snow.

Rubbish Tuesday #38

Below is grandson's Hohner, given to him by his paternal grandfather, who is of German descent.
Hohner is a German company specializing in the manufacture of musical instruments. The company was founded in 1857 by Matthias Hohner (1833-1902). Hohner is identified especially with harmonicas and accordions. The Hohner company has invented and produced many different styles, and most of the harmonicas used by professionals. The company also makes kazoos, recorder flutes, melodicas, banjos, guitars, bass guitars, and ukeleles (under the brand name Lanikai). From the 1940s through 1990s, the company also manufactured various electric/electronic keyboards.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will join in the fun.

My idea was to have a place to post 'old things'. Anything old
and/or deteriorating such as, but not limited to, old houses, barns, outbuildings, old cars, rusty things, antiques, interesting junk, or it can be something in pristine condition, but just old.

Rubbish Tuesday #37

Well, the snow we were expecting didn't show up. There was just enough slush to allow me to take a header down the back steps. Fortunately, unlike the last time I took a header down steps, nothing is broken. It is merely painful. I am such a klutz!

So, needless to say I didn't get around to visit everyone. My left hip hurts, so it is difficult to sit for any length of time. It will not be a good day at work.  This year is not starting off as good as I would have liked, but perhaps that means it will end well.
I took this shot last summer. I'm enjoying the green on this frigid morning. This is an old livestock barn at the edge of the fairgrounds. It isn't in use right now, but after a new coat of paint, I suspect there were pigs in there last August.
