Gentle On My Mind ...

"...You're waiting from the backroads
by the rivers of my memories,
ever smilin' 
ever gentle on my mind."
              ~ "Gentle On My Mind," 
                             ~ 1967

The words from that wonderful song seem to fill the air on a May afternoon at Manassas Guth Covered Bridge as it crosses the Jordan Creek. 

The historic wooden covered bridge
in South Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania was constructed in 1858 and rebuilt in 1882. It is a 108 foot long Burr Truss bridge with vertical siding. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. 

City Chat ...

It's almost summer in the city on Memorial Day weekend
on Nineteenth Street in the quaint West End Theatre District,
Allentown, Pennsylvania.
