Gone digital!

Now for the SIXTH fucking time tonight I've tried to post this... Goddamn Blogspot.

Yesterday when I was at Wal Mart I broke down and got myself a new Olympus FE-115 digital camera and spent this afternoon figuring it out. Above is two extremely rare green telegraph insulators I found along the railroad tracks at work last week. They're rare around here because the dumbass rednecks around here just have to use them for target practice... So it's rare to find one intact even in remote areas. Usually you'll find them shattered in a million pieces strewn around hundreds of 12 Gauge shotshells and Budweiser cans.

And again, I haven't a clue what's up with blogspot tonight but I couldn't even put the pictures in the order I wanted them. Above is a shot of my bedroom.
Another shot of the bedroom, this is where RT rests his weary head after a long day on the railroad.
Here's my loo... It's a lot better than my place in Athens. There the tub had a huge wall to wall mirror in the shower. That was creepy and it took me months to get used to that. The one plus to it though was it was easy to shave in the shower.
And now the kitchen. Notice the electric range. Apparently gas ranges are illegal here in West Virginia because in the two years I've been here I've yet to see one. It was a bitch to re-learn to cook on electric without burning everything I tried to cook.
Another shot of the kitchen. Still no dishwasher, but I'm working on it!
And mein lebensraum. Not much going on here, but you can see where I come up with all my warped and twisted ideas. I still haven't hooked up the TV to satellite or cable because I just can't justify spending the money on something I'd never watch.
A view from my back yard (Garden to my mates in the UK and Australia) of Cheat Mountain.
The outside view of my place. It's really four apartments but my entrance is the only one in front so I've got the sole use of the huge porch and it looks like I'm the only one living in this huge old house.
Another view of the front. Not bad for $250 a month!

Hope all of you had a swell weekend!

Right now, I can't even get my site, it's just a blue screen with dots! Great space for the price!

$250 a month! In Boston, you'd pay that to sleep on someone's couch. Nice digs!

Why are electric ranges illegal? Afraid the redneck will burn their apts up? :)

Sherri said...

Very stately!! I love the columns. As for the electric range, I'd never be able to cook on one. I've tried, it has never turned out well.

Courtney said...

Pretty sweet for $250 a month, actually :)
It's nice, and your view is awesome!! I love mountains...

Red said...

That whole place is just $250 a month?!?

Lisa said...

$250 a month? I am amazed! Sweet. And we have an electric range too. We're going to buy a gas one like we had in our other house... I know what you mean.

RT - I just fell in complete love with your house! It looked okay on the inside, but then when I saw the outside I realized what a treasure you have! I love old houses. The country side looks beautiful as well. Tell me is that your Dad's flag on the desk?

Very nice place!! Congrats!! The new kitchen looks to be the size of your entire last whole apt!!! I bet you're loving all that space aren't you??

Carolyn said...

A front porch and a mountain view too! Can't beat that for the price :)

Cheryl said...
