Tobacco Row

The weather here is ideal for tobacco – even the early morning fog can be uncomfortably warm.

There is a Gate City, Va., but these gates are on a line of stalls at Leeman Field.

An abandoned little dog who follows me while I walk at Leeman Field. Mangy, flea ridden and sickly, all she wants is a little attention.

Here is another sign. This one was on a locked gate to the tennis court. The mayor must be busy keeping track of all the keys and safety chains for Leeman Field.

This is another sign I saw at the entrance to Leeman Field. It begs a couple of questions.

There is a playground at Leeman Field, and on this playground there is a swing.  And because playgrounds in general and swings in particular are hazardous, there is a safety harness for this swing.  It is all the way across town, stored in the Mayor’s Office.  You can call the mayor.  His phone number is nearby.  Maybe he will bring the harness to the playground for you.  Then you can swing safely.  Maybe the mayor will even push you for a while, before he takes his safety harness back to his office.  That would be fun.

It has been overcast lately, and I don’t have the early morning light I like so much. So, time to create . . .

We live in the middle of Pennington Gap, Va. This is in Lee County, the Oxycontin capital of the country. Drugs are bought and sold more or less openly all over town. Many of our neighbors, former and present, have done or are doing time for selling drugs. Strung out bums wander the street, and I don’t like to walk after dark because I simply don’t feel safe.

On several occassions, I have found empty boxes of pseudoepineferin in front of our house. The other day, I found this lying at the steps up from the street. I left it there. Someone might need it.

Early morning at Leeman Field

We’ve started walking together, Gerda and I, before breakfast at Leeman Field. It beats the Middle School track, and there is lots of things to photograph in the early light.
