This week’s A Photo A Week Challenge from Nancy Merrill Photography is for the topic:


Here’s my take on it:

Does anything scream “Small Town” like a fair or carnival?:


Or the church on the hill?:


A favorite in our small town:


It’s where you can rent for parties or go for some bowling:


Or roller skating:



My songs of the day are:

“A Country Called Home” by Ryan Bingham

“Black Country” by Black Country Communion

“Small Town” by John Mellencamp

“Country Down” by Beck

“Country House” by Blur

“Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town” by Pearl Jam

“In God’s Country” by U2

“Black Country Woman” by Led Zeppelin

      • Yeah, it, and all of downtown (about a city block, if that) has been restored and reused. Thanks to The Bruckheimers. As in Jerry and Linda. He’s a producer and they own a farm on the edge of town. She’s the impetus, and it’s been a very good thing.
        And thanks for the good thoughts about tomorrow. I’m worried. I’m sure my wife is freaking out inside. She’s in Gainesville with em, so if she’s busy she’s distracted. That’s her mechanism.
