Remains of a beautiful time, long past.

Today is Tuesday and I am joing
Tom with Tom's Tuesday's treasures.
Just spent another week and 1/2 without a computer.
Received repaired, hopefully, my computer from Dell after 2 techs came to my home and 2 trips via Fed-Ex to Dell.
Hope it is fixed for good.
Pass this red-roofed barn everytime I drive this way. It is way off in the distance and I don't know how to get to it.
I like it however.
This home was once one of the most beautiful homes in our town.
Built in what is now the center of town and many things surround it and it is no longer wanted here. 

Located in Bardstown, Kentucky, the historic Anatok plantation house was built in 1847.  By the time you read these words and see the pictures that follow, it may have been torn down.  These are photos of its final days, waiting as the wrecking crew guts it, tearing it down, brick by brick.  If the current court order is pulled, the house will again face demolition. 

 Owned by the school, Bethleham High School, needs this out of the way for parking.

 This plantation once set in the center of a large estate. The rounded area had beautiful stained glass windows as it was the family chapel.
 Those windows were placed in the new hospital built just outside of town as the home and hospital were both owned by the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and this once housed the sisters.

I have taught many a First Aide and CPR class in this beautiful old home when it was used by the hospital.

Finially I can blog again.

Well finally, after weeks of no computer, 2 techs from Dell coming to my home and finally sending my computer back to Dell, I am finally on line again.
They replaced my hard drive.
Had me worried, but everything is here. I backed all my stuff with Carbonite and it payed off.
Miss seeing and visiting all of you.
I was able to get some of my sites on my Kindle Fire but could not blog.

Don't have any news about grands right now but son's tomatoes sure are delicious.

Jar lid just to show size of these tomatoes
Weighing 3 lbs. each.

Son and family make salsa, tomato juice.
He makes great pickles too.  

I have sure had plenty of tomatoes, squash, peppers, cucumbers.
Since our dear Grandma's Briefs is taking a well earned sabbatical, I will not be linking up with her today.

Linking up with Blue Monday with this cute little fellow in a blue hat.

 His favorite place during vacation.

Blessings to all

In the Pink Saturday

We all love 
Pink Saturday.

I like to buy from Swann's because I can see online all the nutritional counts before I buy and I am not one to go out to the grocery store.

HH does all of the grocery shopping but some things are harder to find than others, so I order different things I like online.

These are White Chocolate Strawberry Scones.
Love them with a cup of tea in the afternoon.
They come in a square and are scored so as to be able to select to cook only one if you would like.

Finally tomatoes coming on.
