A to Z Challenge: P is for Pictures


Indiana farm land


Big statue of a man outside of a store called The Tin Lizzy, located outside of Hartford City


Cemetery where my father is buried.

Since I did the driving during our trip to the States, my gal pal, sk, took the pictures. On the afternoon we went to my father’s grave site, I drove around where I grew up fascinating sk in the meantime by the amount of land my family once owned. The following pictures are all from the area where I was born and raised.


No matter how small the town, they always have a Chinese joint – ‘downtown’ Hartford City

  1. I do find it beautiful in a way, sk gets overwhelmed by the openness, but I am so happy to be back in Canada! Just about every city in the US, no matter how small, has a Chinese eatery. Thanks for reading and commenting, nmwords! Cheers.

  2. It’s all about perspective. Growing up, we were a poor family farm. So poor, the bank took my Dad’s land. Take care, Kris! Cheers!


  3. I grew up on a smallholdings where my parents worked the land planting potatoes, but went bankrupt, so we share similar pasts. All the best to you and sk.
