Vintage Delmarva | A Glimpse of the past in Bethany Beach, Delaware

Some postcards of the southern Delaware beach towns and Sussex County that I've collected from antique shops or online sites throughout the years. It's a great look back at the area from years gone by and for more images see the links at the bottom of this post.

Gas and Steam Engines | Vintage Eclipse & Frick Machines of Yesteryear

I'm new to these enormous engines, a rookie amount giants in the fields of a few recent tractor shows where I stumbled upon them. Not expecting to see such machinery, I was captivated by their style, design and the look back to a time when life was so very different. Since they are such amazing and unique pieces I just wanted to put them together into a short photo-blog listing and at the end of this post you can find links to my albums on Flickr, 500px, etc. Here are a few sites where you can find out more about the Frick Company.

This first batch of photos was taken at the Eastern Shore Threshermen's Association show held annually in Federalsburg, Maryland.

Woken Up | the Alarm Clock of a Conniving Basset Hound

Please congratulate me for I have found the world's most annoying alarm clock. ** THIS CAN BE YOURS FOR JUST TWO EASY PAYMENTS OF $49.99 **

It all begins with a braying donkey-like sound which causes the user to bolt out of bed in a panic thinking that something is totally wrong or disastrous. Once out of bed you proceed onto the front door, believing that the braying indicated an urgent need for some creature to have access to the outside world IMMEDIATELY, only to discover when you get to the door that there is nothing there.
