Friday Randoms




A well known house in Smalltownland is no more.  Only this chimney stands as a reminder, for now.  


Some of your favorite museums are sharing their secrets right here.  


As a dog owner/lover I confess I enjoy their quirky behavior.  I enjoy some good facial expressions even more.  


I don't think I ever considered the beauty of mushrooms until I saw these photos.   


I will send you off into the weekend with a small tribute to Merle Haggard.   



Linking up with Tanya and Nancy today......

  1. L'incendie d'une maison est toujours dramatique. Lorsqu'elle disparaît elle emporte avec elle l'âme qui l'animait ainsi qu'une foule de souvenirs liés à des personnes chères.
    Une tristesse.

    Malgré cette évocation, je te souhaite un beau week-end chère Michelle.

    Amitiés.

  5. Michelle, I'm always a little sad when I see a lone chimney standing. Mushrooms are amazingly beautiful, especially when photographed up close. Have a great weekend!

    1. Tanya, I have not photographed this house before. It fell into a terrible state of disrepair. I am sure the lot will be totally cleared and sold, eventually.

    1. Teresa, this old house fell into a terrible state of disrepair. The owners finally tore it down and now the chimney remains. It sits on an historic street and no doubt the chimney will disappear soon. I am sure they will sell the cleared lot.

  14. Good you took the photos of the chimney. I recently drove in the area of one and saw that it has tumbled to the ground.
    I think those dog photos were Lucy in disguise. They say a lot without a sound. Humans should take a lesson :)

  18. Great links, Michelle. I saw a house end up with just a chimney this past year in Berkeley Springs.

    Faulty wiring...

  20. Hi Michelle, Thanks for the Friday Randoms, as always! You included the museum link just for me, didn't you? You knew that, as a collector, I would love finding those photos! Thank you Michelle!

  21. I always feel sad when I see an old house that is being torn down or falls down. I feel as if long ago people are being replaced.
    That said, the blue in the picture is gorgeous!

  22. The chimney looks so lonely ... Yet a reminder of all the cozy moments, people have been gathering around the fireplace / stove.
    Happy weekend to you, Michelle!

  23. Merle certainly was a legend. He will be missed.

  24. I am just checked out a Merle Haggard cd from the library.I did not know his music as well as some other classic country legends but after listening to his cd I can tell why he was one of the top all time country legends. It always strikes a mood in me when I find the old remains of something. It tells part of a story that leaves a lot of blank pages for your imagination to fill in.
