Country Living At It’s Best

20150712_180446-002Geraldine is just a small town of about 700 people now I am told and we just held our annual “Picnic In The Park” this past Saturday. Lots of food, games, crafts and great music. The band, Three On A String, was the main event. They always put on a great show. I was unable to attend this year but I sure have enjoyed the last few years just hanging out with the town folk. I did drive by the park to see a large crowd just try’in to stay cool under all the pine trees. It looked to be a very large crowd. I was told by Mr. John that it was a great time by all. Glad he was able to attend. He may not remember everyone (I don’t either) but let me tell ya, they remember him.

I just wanted to share with you today just some of my new photography. For the first time since 2007 I am a owner of a new Nikon professional camera. I did not make these photos with it but I promise that I will be filling the pages up with the new photos from the new camera very soon.  DSCN4854-002

It is amazing, or not, that a lot of the farms that sale around here seem to be bought by great people from the city.

Oh well just a fast post of my country living in July 2015.

God bless you all,

Russ Austin

    I’m glad that I am able to comment, now, because until recently, for some reason, I just couldn’t get a comment to post. I’m not sure why.

    So many times, I wanted to post a comment for an interesting post by Mrs. Crumly, but couldn’t.

    I really enjoy the photos, and looking forward to more!
