Rainbow-sharing...




An unexpected pleasure on a trip to the F&M Bank yesterday. This was taken from the bank parking lot--the trees are gorgeous, aren't they?

On the left, through the trees, is a house I often when to with my dad when I was a little girl. The man who lived there and my dad were both "dog men." ("Dog men" have a lot to talk about.)

The two-story white structure on the right is a small apartment house behind the two-story stone house that used to be Dr. Oliver's medical office. (Had to go there more times than I like to remember.) The big stone house is still there, but I'm not sure what, if anything occupies it.

On the far, far right--completely out of the frame--is the house that belonged to a woman who lost both her sons in WW II. I believe her name was Mrs. Holshouser. Even though she's long gone, I always feel sad when I see it. Not so much at that particular moment, though. Rainbows help with things like that.

And this concludes my Rainbow Connection for this time...

What's astounding is that your picture looks so similar to one I took a few years ago in Northern Virginia when my sister was living there: My rainbow photo

Thanks for following me on Twitter!

The other end of this rainbow was much more vivid, but I never could find a place clear of trees or buildings where I could get a good shot--at least not without stopping traffic--not a good idea during rush hour. You're very welcome for the Twitter follow.
