My little town

Today I only left the house to buy groceries. I took my camera along to find a pretty picture for my blog. This is one of my favorite houses in my town.... love the fall colors. I would love to own an old house like this. (click to enlarge)
Have I ever told you that I live 2-3 miles from the "king" of Nascar? This is the entrance to Richard Petty's place. We bump into him from time to time, but don't know him personally. The locals say he is a very nice man and if I ever see him when I have my camera handy, I will ask for a picture with him. :D




Below is a picture of my new roof. We finally got it finished last week. We have had so much rain, it took almost six weeks to get the guys out here to replace the shingles. It looks so much better... but of course, now, we need to spruce up the landscaping and yard to make it all look very pretty.
I've been sewing burp cloths today, while thinking of my new grandbaby. Today marks week 22 of my daughter in law's pregnancy... still no name for the little boy. I look forward to meeting him in a few more weeks!

I like your little town. And I really like your new shingles on the house..(forgot to tell you on Saturday..) I like the older house that you think you would like to own... but It would probably not be as convient as the house you have now.. you need to ask Shannon about old houses...LOL

Hey Penny, the grandbaby is over half way to being born! I'd love to know his name too. Some parents don't want to tell anybody ahead of time though. :o)

The pictures are very pretty. I, too, would love to own an old house. But, I would want to have lots of money available to fix it up with!

I absolutely love the old house that you do. I would also love to live in one exactly like that.

Gee Pen, you live next to a pretty famous person. My neighbor across the street is Tim, but guess that doesn't ring a bell with anyone. HA
Pretty house, and of course the fall colors are beautful this year.
Can't say enough about your lovely roof.

Nothing like looking forward to a new grand baby! My son & his wife are trying...
Your town (and your roof!) look very pretty :-)
