I love history.  I enjoy visiting older places and wondering what has gone on there over time.  When I lived in Macon, Georgia, my apartment was in an Antebellum mansion, and I loved walking around the neighborhood seeing all of the homes. Here in Asheboro, there are a few old homes. This home is my […]

I love living in the country.  I love the open spaces, the forests, and the farms.  I love not having to deal with stop lights, and traffic.  We only live about 12 minutes out of town, but that is far enough to breathe. This painting is of a farm nearby us on High Pine Church […]

One of my favorite stress relievers is to take a drive in the country, and I live in some pretty country. The Uwharries are an ancient, eroded mountain range in central North Carolina. I live in a community built in the north end of the range. It is beautiful. This particular view comes from across […]

One thing I find interesting is the color contrast on the Italianate home. The owners were redoing the roof, and I enjoy the cool color of […]

Valentines Weekend, 2010, Lynley and I got up to a beautiful snowfall. It was just a few inches, but it blanketed the world with a clean new whiteness. We had decided to take a trip for the weekend, and the Raleigh North Carolina Temple was the perfect first start. We believe that a marriage sealed […]

I enjoy the landscape. I think God is the greatest artist ever, because he created such a beautiful world for us to live in. Birkhead Mountain Summer is an example of this.One day, a week or so ago, I was just driving down some country road,  a few minutes from my house, when this view […]

We recently moved to North Carolina, so my wife could start a new job. I am enjoying living here. One my favorite things about North Carolina is their great State Park system. Most of the state parks are free, and in beautiful locations. South Mountains State Park is a great example of this. The South […]
