Two Blocks Away

So far, the photos I have been showing of my little town have been of the townies. Here is a view from a walk two blocks away.

I like that view!!!

Rock Chef said...

That is wonderful. I have something similar, but not as nice as it has a motorway running through it...

Anne H said...

GREAT neighbors!
Or should I say "Neigh!- bors....."

DJan said...

That's pretty rural, all right! Pretty neighbors. :-)

I was just going to say that I wished I had something like that nearby. Then I remembered the farm that is just two blocks up my road. All of the homes in my area are sitting on property that used to be a part of that same farm! I don't usually see horses though. Just cows.

That's only 2 blocks away? What a peaceful, serene area you're in!

Hilary said...

You've got some beautiful looking neigh... bors there. ;)

Thank you for your visit to sixtyfivewhatnow. It turns out that both of us moved to a small town and seem to enjoy it.

What more could one ask for?

Lately, I came upon the theory that small town living helps to insure people behave in a nicer way toward each other. If one behaves rudely or badly, it gets around and the perpetrator is held accountable. In a large city, a person can be mean all over the place and get away with it...

Very pretty view.

There is a certain stretch of highway near me I like to drive, that is, under the right conditions, a postcard version of New England rolling hills. Especially in fall, with the occasional spire, plowed field, or glimpse of cows and horses peeking out through the trees.

We didn't get fall, per se, here this year. Too warm and wet. Everything just turned brown. Plus the leaves hung on right up until the week before Thanksgiving. Fortunately, the weather was right for raking. Very pleasant, esp with the entire neighborhood out all at once.

They only collect yard waste until December, y'see.

Thanks for stopping by the other day. It was a good reminder to me to swap your old blog for the new.

Hello :)
Thanks for giving me the blog link.

Although I am a Sagittarian, I am not that really into horses, any size. But that's a pretty sunny picture.

Looks heavenly!

Ms.A, the walks here are bringing me such joy. I haven't even started with drives yet.

Rock Chef, I could hear a cricket burp out there I think. It is so quiet.

Anne, love your sense of humor. Yes, I guess you could say they are neighbors and I think they are the most peaceful horses I have seen.

DJan, there is so much more to show you. I hope I never have to leave here. I want to take my last breath here.

terri, oh my, a large farm was "farmed out" and replaced with homes.

blueviolet, yes it is peaceful here. People who want shops and convenience would not be able to live here. I for one prefer the friendly town to busy city.

Hilary, I sometimes forget the larger animals because I am watching birds and squirrels so much.

rosaria, glad you are finding the specialness of small town living too.

Joanna, I never told you about the surrounding farms and agri. This is maybe how it was for you in Ohio when you were growing up.

Stickup Artist, I have the very same philosophy about people being mean and getting away with it. Small town people stick together.

Cricket, you should take some pictures of that stretch of highway and share with us.

Shadowthorne, you got your hair cut. Glad you are back blogging again.

Debby, yep, heavenly is a good description. I am learning the term "out to pasture" in more ways than one.
