George Dickel – Hard to find in Normandy

dickel-6Normandy, Tennessee.

If you mention Tennessee and Whiskey, it will probably be inferred that you mean Jack Daniel’s. However, there are other distilleries, one only a few miles from Lynchburg’s iconic brand. Lynchburg and the Jack Daniel Distillery aren’t exactly big city, but another distillery who spells their product name “Whisky”, can be found only a few miles away. Continue reading

But I Digress… Thank You for Following!

Linnean House.St. Louis, Missouri.

Sometime during the last few days, Journeys with Johnbo passed a milestone. As of today, over 500 followers are tagging along on my photographic journeys.

For all of you, I am sharing a never-before-published photo. The Linnean House is a part of the Missouri Botanical Garden. Lynn and I spent a magical afternoon there exploring the grounds and enjoying the views.

In an upcoming Journey, I will have more images from the gardens. For now, I will just say that if you live close to this treasure, you are lucky indeed.

You can also find me on Facebook at my Photo By Johnbo page here.

I am looking forward to many more journeys in upcoming months. If you aren’t already a regular follower, hop aboard!

In 2013, I shared a gallery of images and a travel feature here focusing on our first visit in 2007. Continue reading

Cass County CourthouseFargo, North Dakota.

Election day is coming soon, and since we don’t always know whether we will be travelling or in our desert home when election day hits, we opt for absentee ballots. They arrived this week and it took me only a few moments to mismark my ballot. I needed a new one. Fortunately, screwing up a ballot is not a reason to become disenfranchised. However, it took a trip to the Cass County Courthouse to turn in my spoiled ballot and obtain a new one. Continue reading
