Time for a little catching up, before tomorrow's eclipse, though I don't plan to take photos then. Surely there'll be enough.
OK, first photo. I had a good visit with Jean last week, and food (!) and a new view of the barn that's being repaired:
This second photo is of Gary and his grandson who was visiting from West Virginia. They came by on the four wheeler! Their visit was an unexpected treat:
My daughter and I went to Clyde's to show him some photos I took this spring of his apple orchard. This is my best photo of what's going on there now: winesaps on their way to becoming totally ripe!
Now some photos from the evening walks I've been taking near where I now live. The woods feel different here than where I used to live, four miles away -- fields and more fields:

I wish everyone a safe day eclipse day, with no eye damage. I have my glasses, and I get to watch the eclipse with my son-in-law and my granddaughter. Schools around here have been canceled for the day. We're not in totality, but we're scheduled to be free of clouds. Neighbors here drove to Tennessee yesterday to see it right. There are not supposed to be any clouds down there either! I'm happy for them. Let's hear it for protective eye gear!! I am also grateful for the hard, important work done by scientists to figure out how our world works.
One last photo before the end of summer, from cousin camp -- eight year old in orbit!!
