1278 Photos: Some Thoughts

Sept 2, 2019

As of right now, I’m not going to do my reading post until later. Might be later today or tomorrow, we’ll see what the near future brings. I really wanted to use this post to get some thoughts out.

I’m thinking this month I will focus on scanning some photos into the computer. I have a few (hundred?) that I have left to get into the computer. I had started years ago, and gotten the biggest chunk of them scanned and in photo albums. When my dad died, that stopped. So, I’m starting up again. I’ll still be taking photos, just not as many.

Baker Park, Frederick MD, USA

A couple of weeks ago I had to go downtown Frederick MD to take care of some personal business. We parked at Baker Park and walked the couple of blocks and of course, I brought my camera and took some pictures. Hope you enjoy!

Carroll Creek, flood control

In 1972, Hurricane Agnes came through and flooded downtown Frederick. People were using boats to get around! Of course, this was before I was born but I remember the stories. This is what prompted the city to start the flood control project. It took many years and millions of dollars, but for the most part the project is completed. We had some flooding back in May, severe rains, Baker Park was flooded but downtown was not. I was going to include a link here about the project and how it has helped, but I can’t really find anything. So maybe later.

Downtown Frederick

Frederick apparently has two sister cities:

Mörzheim, LandauGermany
Schifferstadt, Rhineland-PalatinateGermany
Site of Frederick County’s first YMCA and its founders

Once I have more information gathered for the flood control project and a little bit of the history of Frederick, I will do another post.

What is Frederick Maryland known for?

As the gateway to western Maryland with its mountainous views and “clustered spires” skyline, Frederick is best known for its civil war history and its 40-block historic district, and much more. Located within an hour drive of Washington D.C. and Baltimore, the historic town is an easy and fun place to explore. Frederick was founded in 1745 by German settlers.

That’s about all for today! I could go on and on, but I need to start getting ready for work.

Hope you enjoyed!

Today is National V-J Day, National Blueberry Popsicle Day and Labor Day!

Have a great day!

Thanks for visiting!!
