Here is a picture I took of a Heron watching us while we were fishing the other day.
Here is a picture of an old gas pump we came upon, on one of our trips through the US of A. They are getting harder and harder to find nowadays. More memories.
Here are a few pictures of a Ford Mustang that belongs to a friend of ours in Florida. We went out to lunch with them and while there snapped a few pictures of their car. Brings back memories.

Here is a picture showing the home where I was raised in many years ago. A bit neglected now and the barn was destroyed by a bad storm. I was located in Coldwater Ontario. They built a smaller one in its place. The Potters, Reg and Laura, adopted me, and I stayed with them till I was around 15. The nicest folks you would ever want to meet. Some have asked for a picture, so here it is. It is a bit blurred with light, but still visible to see. GW
Here is a picture of our friend Carrie and her horse Rhythm dropping by for a visit. She didn’t arrive in a car. Years ago I used to have a horse much like Carrie’s, just a touch smaller. Brings back memories for sure.
Here is a picture of the old well pump that was at my school 69 years ago. Still works as my wife and I dropped by for a drink travelling through the area last year. Good water too still nice, cold and sweet.
Here is a picture of my old school in Coldwater Ontario. Separate entrances for boys and girls. We both sat together in the classroom though. Many years ago.
Here is a picture of a waterfall that is located here in Port Loring. Nice place to have a picnic, secluded, and … well, what can I say.
Here is a turtle we seen awhile back asking for some help to cross the road. So we stopped and helped him out. For our help I figured we deserved a picture. On another note, take into account that the highway we stopped on was 522, and not busy, so we didn’t cause any accidents with stopping along the highway. On a busy highway I wouldn’t have bothered. Not that I wouldn’t have wanted too.
Here is a picture of a Ford I used to own. This isn’t my car but one similar. I paid $500.00 for it back when. Lasted a good number of years and made over five trips from Beamsville Ontario to Sarasota Florida. I had it painted down there in a Metallic Green. She was a beauty. GW
Here is one of many pictures I took that shows the true beauty that consists all around our town. GW
Here is another few pictures of a fishing trip we took. All these pictures are located only 5 minutes from our home. GW
Here is a couple of pictures of what we have to offer folks when we get rid of this white stuff. GW
I was down visiting my son Craig awhile back, and being a lover of old vehicles, especially Fords I had the good luck of seeing an old 1928 Ford Pick-up It was in great shape for its year, so I took a few pictures, which I thought I would share with you that like older vehicles as I do. Enjoy!
Thought I would share with you a few pictures taken this morning while I was out feeding the birds. Not that there are any birds out there this morning. I think they are smarter than I am.. Have a great day!
Thought I would send a picture of some foot prints in the??? I know it isn’t footprints in sand like in Florida, but the only difference is that you need to wear your boots instead of bare feet. And hey, it is white like Florida Sand.
Here is a couple of pictures of a car I had many years ago. The pictures are not of my car but one identical. Drove it to Florida five times with no problems. Even gave it a paint job while down there one time. Great car and of course it is a Ford. Ha Ha. I would have to say its looks and slender lines would still be appreciated if made new today.

These two drop by every morning and evening to say hi. Listening to their unique call ho, ho, ho ho, has the ability to calm anyone. Reminds me of my old Dad sitting out under a palm tree in Florida in the evening hours. As they would entertain us their also. Their call will sound as if they are way off in the distance only to be a few feet away. Click Pictures To Enlarge.
Little blurry but still nice to see.
Wife put these together for our entrance way. They reside in a 50 or older hand blown milk bottle. Quite unique in itself. She does have a knack of doing things. Click Picture To Enlarge!

Well was a great 4 days watching the Masters From Augusta Georgia. Thank goodness our home is set up with a generator back up, with the power being out for over six hours on Sunday. All and all it was a great event. Jordan Spieth held the lead for three consecutive days and then on the fourth things started to change. Then entering into the picture comes Danny Willett A–28-year-old Englishman. A fascinating man. You might say a family man. He was one happy fellow putting on that Green Jacket. It was sad to see Jordan loose after holding the lead for three days but in turn it is also nice to see some one new winning the 2016 Masters. Couple Pictures Below of Danny Willett.
Here is another picture I have at my home taken many years ago. Writing on pictures are all authentic. We do have a bit of history here in Port Loring & Loring. Enjoy!
