I have older versions of this photo.
Emma and Helen riding west, Slabtown road. Ten minutes to sunset. Helen back from Japan, no sleep for 24 hours.
Sunday 2100 hrs. Moviegoers approach Vinegar Hill Theater, one last time. A very different experience than the multi-screen, acres of asphalt Movieplex.
Not the place you go to see Wolverine. Human scale. Vinegar Hill Theater manager James Ford thanked long time supporters in advance of Frances Ha, the final movie.
Credits roll. The lights go out on independent cinema in CHO.

Pure and simple, Tabernacle of Praise is a place where our heart is set to praise God. When we do, we become word activated, love motivated, praise saturated, and a people liberated. Are you asking, “What does that mean exactly?”–Tabernacle of Praise website
3,800-acre tract of publicly owned virgin forest in Graham County, North Carolina, named in memory of Joyce Kilmer, best known for his poem “Trees”.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
Emma and I installed a waterline to my house July 31. Rented a model 1820 Ditch Witch, aka “the pipe finder”. Everyone knows, call Miss Utility (811) before you dig. I am on a first name basis with Miss Utility. She marked the underground gas and electric, the lines one really wants to avoid.
Lost in history when the Woolen Mills Village first got “government” water. The houses had wells. According to oral history, the Mill had a water system for portions of the village. Albemarle County installed a sanitary sewer and a water main to the WMV in the 1930’s. Emma and I found 3 retired supply pipes to my house with the ditchwitch. The last was polybutelene, “qest big blue”. These service laterals lasted less than 30 years on average. Hoping the newly installed one inch type K will last 100 years, or until the Ragged Mountain reservoir gets its fill pipe installed, whichever comes first.
Disparate views. In each other’s space.
