Teufel,
    The covered bridge reminds me of the scene in Silver Bullet where the kid in the custom wheel chair gets chased by the Reverend/Werewolf.Great photo !

Awesome pictures especially of the tree Ents.  Many of our old houses have long since fell to make room for housing developments.

 True, which is really sad.  A lot of the old Victorian houses really had beautiful and unique architecture, and would be fantastic  looking if repaired.  Today's houses just don't have the style of some of these older houses of by-gone era's.

I agree. There is something truly sad every time a magnificent American Gothic house is torn down to make room for some crackerbox housing development.  Or worse.  Locally a few wonderful farm houses and outbuildings were demolished, and in their place, the  developers "built"-and I use that term loosely-- McMansions pattered after Thomas Kincaid cottages.   Thats right: real charm destroyed for faux style.

Even worse--many of these lost houses contain many easily salvaged components that could have been used elsewhere.

I totally agree. My wife and LOVE the Victorian style houses inside and out. Especially if they have the cool color combos like yellows purples magenta etc. If we had the means I would certainly move away from the rat race and live in one in a small town. Back in 90' I lived for a short time in an 1898 semi Victorian with the loong winding stair case ,trap door to the creepy basement and stained glass front door. It was in Marinette WI. I paid $23,500 because it was a TLC type fixer upper and my mortgage and taxes were $20 less than my SUV payment. The downside is that jobs that paid much over minimum wage were HTF. So after 18 mos back to the Chicago area. :'( I wish I was still up there.

Agreed buddy.......my house is only 6 years old. All the modern conveniences. Blahhhhhhhhhhhh. My dream is to get the hell out of Florida and back to where there are SEASONS, and buy an OLD Victorian for Nancy and I. She loves the old slightly c reepy houses too.
We're all here because we're not all there.

Long live the UMA!
