Yesterdays Ride Around

Over the weekend was the 
auction for Cash. 
The little boy fighting
cancer. My friend Debbie
went to East Tn., making
sure the painting got there
for the auction. 
Debbie's cousin is
Cash's grandma. 

Anyway, Debbie was not sure
what the painting brought
in but there was a woman
that was really wanting it.
She ended up with the winning
bid. She got the painting
for he sister who is going
through some major
health issues. I am happy
that someone like that
had the winning bid.


Yesterday I went on a ride around...
haha....my term. 
Anyway, I was heading to my nieces
place and I grabbed my camera
so that I could go riding after
my visit. 

On Facebook I have an album 
for mailboxes. 
Usual mailboxes showing
personality. 

Here are a few I got yesterday.





I started that album in 2009
and I have some pretty cool
mailboxes. 

I also have an album for
Churches.
That album I started in 2012.

I stopped and took a pic on 
one of my back roads travels
of this church. My gut tells me
it is an older church but I could
not locate anything that
told the year it was est. 

Name - Salem Church of Christ.


This one could stand a good amount
of paint. 
This one did have a est. sign 
on the front of the church.
Est. in 1801.


Spring Creek Presbyterian 
Church. 




In my riding around, just
taking back roads I ended
up in Norene Tn.
I saw this place and realized
that I have been on this back road
before. A friend of mine and 
me used to go back road riding
in his vet and we ended up here.

I love this little Post Office.


Tiny little place! 
I will post more pics later.

Thanks for stopping in for a visit,

I've been wanting to start a collection of church photos but have never gotten around to starting it

At one time I thought about starting a mailbox collection... It never happened --but I do have several things I either collect or want to. The one thing I do collect is different waterfalls all over the country. We probably have seen more than 1500 so far... There are still tons more to see!!! I love your old church pictures... I also have a collection of old churches.

I have a small collection of lighthouses --but need to travel more on the coastal areas to get more... I also have an interest in courthouses.... Every time we travel through a state (like Georgia) ---we always take the back roads instead of the interstates. When we go through the little towns, many of them have county courthouses... SO pretty....

Hugs,
Betsy

Oooh, cool mailboxes. We don't have any cool mailboxes around here. None. Not a one. Now I'm sad about that.
