My Secret Fishing Hole.

Give a man a fish and you'll feed him for a day;
Give a man religion and he'll starve to death
while praying for a fish.








I feel sorry for the worm. If it doesn't get off
the hook, it will most likley drown. 
Unknown.



Nothing makes a fish bigger,
than almost being caught .

And only God, and the fisherman, know the truth.


Enjoy thy stream, O harmless fish;
and when an angler for his dish,
Through glouttney's vile sin,
Attempts, the wretch, to pull thee out,
God give thee strength, O gentle trout,
To pull the rascle in !
"John Wolcot"


O, would be fisherman how fast can you bail water,
And still real em in. Lord have mercy.

Up Up and Away

I took these shots in the lake
behind our house, Lake Jericho.


I think, what started the panic to fly,
I asked, "mind if I take a few shots ?".








      Canadian Geese are kind of boreing,
until they start to fly, then it is a comedy.

Isaiah Davenport House and Museum.


Located in Savannah's historic district on
Columbia Square, this example of Federal
architecture was completed in 1820 by a
master builder from Rhode Island. 
Isaiah Davenport came to Savannah in 1807
to participate in the building boom that followed
the disastrous fire of 1796.
Davenport prospered as a builder and took an
active part in Savannah politics by serving on
the city council.
Isaiah Davenport died during the yellow fever
epidemic in 1827 at the age of 43.
The restoration of the Davenport house grew
into the Historic Savannah Foundation, which is 
responsable for the restoration of much of Savannah.

Cold Snap in Ga.

The unseasonable cold spell that has invaded
coastal Georgia, has everyone searching for ways
to keep warm. It did not take long for us to realize,
If you keep the head bone warm, you will be alot more
comfortable all over. For all of my blog friends, please
forgive our lack of enthusiasm for the shovle and plow.


















Any style Hat will do.

Green Meldrim Mansion

Imagine the cost of all this Iron work,
and the copper roof over the portico.
The large columns at the front door
are hollow iron.

Click on the above picture to read
the Historical marker. The Mansion was
Gen. Sherman's Headquarters while his
troops occupied Savannah.

Above, is the right side of the portico.


   Saint Johns Episcopal church operates the Mansion
And conducts tours to support and maintain it.
The above is a beautiful garden between the church
and the mansion. The garden has a small fountain pool.
My next post will be the church front.
