While I have been riding the small loop by my house I look a little closer each time I go around. This barn still has some old, dilapidated equipment in it. It looks like it is also part of the same pasture that I took a picture of in the previous post of the cows.
I have ridden my bicycle for a few miles.
This last year has been a rough one. My dad’s health went steadily downhill until Memorial Day when he bottomed out. We got him to the ER with basically about 15 minutes of life left in him. They figured out what was wrong after a year of testing and got him on the mend. I am happy to report he is better than he has been in the last ten years.
I did start building myself up by walking my dog in the mornings and then continuing on my own when he was done and walk about 2-4 miles every morning. One goal is to be somewhat ready to hike up to the bluffs on Alum Cave Trail in the Smokies this fall.
But today I road my bike after the dog walk. And it felt good!
If I can get the next pic loaded, you can see I still need some work…
Spending it with my parents. Glad to be, seeing as the past few months we watched what we thought may be my Dad’s last days.
And he was 15 minutes from it.
Which lead to a series of testing following his stay in ICU at our Veterans Hospital. We now have a diagnosis ( this has been going on for about a year) and medication to correct it. And my dad is literally good as new after a week’s stay.
Maybe I will get back on the bike and start posting again.
I took the Pugsley for a pootle around town today and came upon a little park/cemetery.
I guess the park is on the site of where this church used to be.
This flagpole is surrounded by a circle with benches to sit on all the way around. In the background are some of the past and present flags of the area.
Forks of the River Cemetery Park.
The Tennessee state flag is in the middle below the US flag (scroll up to flag picture).
The North Carolina and former State of Franklin flags are on the left (scroll up to flag picture).
The Sevier County flag on top and Sevierville flag on bottom on the right side of flags picture (scroll up).
