Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

I'm an elderly retired teacher who writes. Among my books are Ferradiddledumday (Appalachian version of the Rumpelstiltskin story), Stuck (middle grade paranormal novel), Patches on the Same Quilt (novel set in Franklin County, VA), Them That Go (an Appalachian novel), Miracle of the Concrete Jesus & Other Stories, and several Kindle ebooks.

Take a Rural Peek

If you’re trapped in the city and you crave a mountain to rest your eyes against, I found the webcam for you.

This one, pointed at Cahas Mountain in northern Franklin County, is at Oak Hill Stables in Boones Mill. The webcam gives a glimpse of what a rural part of Franklin County looks like—what’s left of it.

Last night's post last night showed Roanoke in the evening. This one shows Franklin County in the morning. I grabbed this image a little after 8:30 a.m.

Go ahead. Take a peek at rural Virginia.

While it’s still there.

Becky, that's where I learned to ride Dressage. That's Nancy and Sean's place!

What's left of it? Compared to where I come from, it will take many many years of development for me to feel that I am not WAY OUT in the country. (But I still hate to see ANYTHING plowed over.)

It sure is beautiful.
