The Snowman of Portersville – Guest Blog

Our family friend Shuey has done it again. Sent photos that create a guest blog post. He’d driven his motorcycle up from Niceville Florida.

“I rode up to be a motorcycle safety volunteer for a charity bicycle event running out of Seneca, PA. It was in support of MS research and I monitored traffic at an intersection to facilitate travel for over 300 cyclists riding a 75 mile course. Weather was decent last Saturday and I think everyone had a good time. The route was quite hilly and twisty; these were serious riders.”

Last Saturday Shuey captured the Snowman after his volunteer duty was completed.

The Snowman is a one-of-a-kind, 13-foot tall custom built roadside attraction originally from New Mexico. In 2013, he found his permanent home right here in Portersville, Pennsylvania.”

“If you’ve followed the blog you might remember the top post of 2012 was Shuey’s guest post of the stunning Barred Owl

Start Them Early – Guest Blog

Guest Blog photo shot, taken by Grandson Charlie, who’ll turn six on the 25th. Sunday afternoon I arrived for a visit and we were in the back seat while his mom drove. He asked if he could use my phone to take pictures. I deleted the close up ones of me but thought this shot taken from his car window was a good one.

Kennebunk Maine Seagull- Guest Blog

Eleven degrees in Kennebunk, Maine. Cold!

This series of photos of a persistent seagull pecking on my friend Carrie’s car hood arrived in my messages tonight.
Thanks for sending these shots.

I asked if he did any damage to the hood
Carrie says,

Oh, I didn’t look. Don’t think so.  finally put it in drive and went forward. He stayed on. So I put it in reverse. He still stayed on. Then I backed up and turned to get him off. The little guy was enjoying the ride.”
