Happy New Year!!! let's get this New Year started out right!!!

let me set the stage ... we had just left the "Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill" in Harrodsburg, KY & we were headed to "Hillbilly Hotdogs" in Lesage, West Virginia for lunch. so we got to pass by these beauties.

the last one there above looks like a office building to me ... it is a Baptist Church though.

We visited that Shaker Village many years ago with my parents. Beautiful place.
These are great church pics. I saw many churches today on our drive but was not where I could take photos. I need to go back!

Ponder this if you will:

the state of VIRGINIA: it is my home, my HEART, my life ... where i was born & where i will forever live. when i leave my she (my home) misses me ...she loves me & owns me.

the state of WEST VIRGINIA: it is my lung ...without West VA i could not breathe, i would not continue on. gorgeous. a state worth it's name in gold. have you been there? if not ...make your way immediately. so worth the trip. the folks who are West Virginians are hard work, miners & deserve much respect. get between them & their work & you will be finding yourself with a kick in the butt. make fun of West VA, and you have seriously crossed me, so watch out!

the state of MONTANA: i went there for the 1st time in the 90's. & i was smitten. love at 1st sight. it is BIG SKY COUNTRY. & that ain't no lie. gorgeous. photo worthy. unbelievable. when i get there she breathes a sigh of relief. she misses me when i am gone. like family. my best friend. clear air. perfect it all it's glory!!! (a clear 2nd to MONTANA would be the state of WYOMING.)

CANADA - i have been 3 times now, all to different area ... & before you get your panties in a bunch Mrs. U.S.A. i do have you let you know i am having a love affair with Canada. i think i need duel citizenship. i am that hook!! no kidding. ( :

if you live in Kansas or North Dakota, please email (elizardbreathspeaks@gmail.com) me at tell me where you live & why you love it? how did you get there? through marriage or parents or what? i so want to know. thanks!! ( :

where do you live & why do you love it? tell me. i would love to listen. we are always looking for great NEW places that are "must sees" in your state.

big big hugs. ( :
