I was originally planning long and involved post about history, but since it's 12:40 AM and I need to get up in a little more than 6 hours, I'll have to settle for posting a few pictures of a nice sunset this evening. This is the house I grew up in, which I am watching while Dad is visiting my brother and his family in Germany. Growing up, I always liked the view to the west from the backyard, especially in the evening.
OK, so I like sunsets. I promise that the next time I post photographs, they will be of something else.
