Summer Morning At Rex's Bridge ...



“It was a splendid summer morning and it seemed as if nothing could go wrong.”
                  ~ John Cheever
                   ~ 1912-1982

A stunning summer morning frames the historic beauty of Rex’s Covered Bridge, North Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania in late August.

Though diminutive in size, it’s well-traveled in this picturesque rural area where it crosses the Jordan Creek.

The wooden 150-foot-long Burr Truss bridge was constructed in 1858. It has narrow horizontal siding and a gable roof. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.

Good Morning Dixie ...



“Oh, I wish I was in the land of cotton
Old times they are not forgotten
Look away, look away, look away Dixieland
Oh I wish I was in Dixie, away, away

In Dixieland I take my stand to live and die in Dixie
For Dixieland, that’s where I was born
Early Lord one frosty morn
Look away, look away, look away Dixieland

Glory, glory hallelujah
Glory, glory hallelujah
Glory, glory hallelujah
His truth is marching on …”

                 ~ “An American Trilogy”
             ~ songwriters Don Reedman, Nick Patrick and Robin Smith
          ~ recorded by the great Elvis Presley
                                           ~ 1972

The peace of a beautiful southern fall morning floats along with the Colleton River in the Lowcountry of Beaufort County, South Carolina on a late October day in Dixie.
