The Swing

By Robert Louis Stevenson

How do you like to go up in a swing,

Up in the air so blue?

Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing

Ever a child can do!

Up in the air and over the wall,

Till I can see so wide,

Rivers and trees and cattle and all

Over the countryside—

Till I look down on the garden green,

Down on the roof so brown—

Up in the air I go flying again,

Up in the air and down!

Fascinating images of this remote part of the world......Love the old blues pioneers like "Sonny Boy"Williamson! Stevenson poem is also nice addition, for the swinging kids!

#1 - Towers - even one from steel - I like the combination and it's so strange beautiful with the landscape, which is just a nearly invisible "very small hill" in the background. LOVE IT! 

#3 made my day - especially in combination with Russel's coffee problem (baby stroller ... smile  )! It's a substitute Merceds Benz, but not with a 350 HP engine, but the unique 1 HMC (headless milk cow) eco-friendly Pre-Tesla version.

Be Right Back I need more coffee I thought #3 was a baby stroller at first.#1This village/town (unsure what to call it ) has a million dollar view.
PS I love both John Lee Williamson and Robert Louis Stevenson . I was just talking with a neighbor about I wish a musician would become popular that had the sound of someone like him.
