Buggy Days

Retro vehicle in Sedona
Transportation during 1895 - can't you just see a couple of horses hitched up to this old buggy which is in remarkable condition. I think it may have gotten a new paint job.

Random 5 Friday

Reflections on top the car of the cliffs.

Friday's fences - the last of the summer rose and reflections.

Random Five Friday
1. It has rained for the last three days - very unusual for our arid country.

2. A genealogy fever has taken over of late - four cousins have contacted me this last month - all from different lines of my tree. There are my Edwards line from Wales, my Nicholas line still in Maine and my Zagorski and Staranowicz lines from Janowek, and Sztabin, Poland.

3. I found more photos for my last family history book on my father's side (Polish cousins). I said that this book was finished at least four times but since then, I added at least 30 new photos and more text. I had to buy a bigger flash drive to hold my book.

4. Our Daughters' of the Utah Pioneers camp started the new season this month.  I was part of a skit which turned out to be pretty funny and fun about Mr. Penrose's cabin being moved about four times before it found a final resting place in Farmington, Utah and became one of the many DUP Museums.

5. Babysitting my grandchildren tonight - hope it all goes well. Four can keep you hopping.

Love the buggy shot. Genealogy is wonderful, but you'll never be done. I finally just did a digital copy of my book and gave to my cousins.

The buggy is beautiful! We have a large Mennonite community here, all their buggies are black.

4 grands, that will be fun. That is a beautiful buggy, both my Grandfathers owned buggies such as this...probably a pretty bumpy ride.

Ginny said...

We are babysitting ours tomorrow, I hope you have pictures on your next post! I love this glorious carriage with it's yellow wheels right in front of the mountains!!!

I love how your buggy just pops out of the landscape! It is indeed a thing of beauty. Also love your waterfalls from an earlier post.
