  1. Troll,


    I love what you’ve done with those maples 🙂

  2. “Images that stir my soul”

    And there we were, expecting to see a cruise missile smash into a mosque.

  3. Have to say I was expecting F-15s, the odd aircraft carrier and plenty of children hugging pop at the homecoming.

    But no, you live and learn and they certainly are stirring images: beautiful country in which to make a home and not a single immigrant or metrosexual to be seen.

  4. Great post Troll.

  5. The woods are lovely dark and deep, and I have miles to go before I sleep

  6. the pictures are of West Virginia, but they are the exact same terrain as Pennsylvania(Penn’s Woods)

  7. Troll – speaking of images, a Kitchener father is upset that police arrested him at his children’s’ school Wednesday, hauled him down to the station and strip-searched him, all because his four-year-old daughter drew a picture of a gun at school. Now, I’m sure that you’ll say that it’s in Canada and it could never happen the Land of (those who believe they are) the Free, but a reader wrote a not-so-tongue-in-cheek comment which describes the state of your nation, and mine unfortunately.


    1. Ice Bergs–Obviously Child does not believe in Global Warming.
    2. An Old Steam Engine–Child must thinks pollution is beautiful.
    3. Planting a Garden–May lead to planting unapproved (non-GM) seeds.
    4. Playing with computer–Everyone knows that computers are just for porn.
    5. A mother and father of opposite sexes–Obviously narrow-minded upbringing.
    6. Hunting and fishing–Killing animals can only lead to violence.
    7. Kids Playing Tag–You mean the kid might touch another person. Ugh!
    8. A Coal Power Plant–Young kids should not even be allowed to know this much evil.
    9. Ron Paul or Alex Jones–Only pics of TV and Rock stars are permitted.
    10. And God Forbid, a picture of God–Not in an American Public School.

  8. Many, many years ago I spent 2- glorious weeks travelling through West Virginia in my almost new yellow VW beatle.

    I saw Harper’s Ferry, Fairmount, Point Pleasant and Elkins on my travels.

    Of course there were a couple of friendly West Virginia women along the way to show me some sights too.

    I’ve been in almost all of the 50 States, but West Virginia holds a special place in my heart.

    Thanks for the memories, Troll.

  9. You have a soul?


  10. it’s in a jar for safe keeping

  11. Very good Troll. I wish that there was a ‘like’ button on ATW.
