Humongous! See how close those power lines are?

Nice car....(mine) HAHA!
These last two photos are in the lovely front yard across the street from our house, the old Jacobs House....(we can live there 50 years and it will still be called the old Jacobs House)
You may have tasted her family's delicious salad dressing, Brianna's. Thanks Elaine, for the view and thanks for keeping us supplied with Champagne Caper Vinagrette..Yum!
