    I hope you are one moved in a positive way to the beauty and splendor of autumn and able to observe the spectacular changes of color at this wonderful time of year.
    Most Floridians, outside of Gadsden County would probably have to drive fairly long distances to view the fall foliage.
    My wife and I missed viewing the fall colors while we lived in Florida.
    Before I left New England, I was always awed by the beauty of autumn and the graceful falling of the leaves of red, brown, green and yellow.

  • Along Twin Ponds Road

    Many South Carolinians living in Aiken County have lost their homes or can’t gain access to them because of high flood water.
    Judy and I have once again been spared from the wrath of nature, or could it be the wrath of God?
    Too often lately I’m convinced that our God, for reasons too deep to fathom, has spared us from peril or loss of our home and property.
    I’m certain one day soon none of us will be spared from the wrath of God and mankind will no longer exist on this wonderful planet we call Earth.
