Ghost of Gettysburg Battlefield

Back in October 2002 I was travelling around the United  States.

Being interested in history, especially the Civil War I could not miss a trip to the Gettysburg battlefield. So I took three days over the Columbus Day Holiday to visit the small Pennsyylvania town and walk over the battlefield.

Close to the Virginia Monument, a large equestrian statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee on traveller (his horse). I took this photograph:

Gettysburg Ghost Photograph

Photograph of the Gettysburg Battlefield.

What the grey cloud is in the center of the photograph , is? I cannot definitely say. The ground beneath my feet was a burial pit for dozens if not hundreds of men who marched out of these trees on July 3rd, 1863 in a massive attack on the Union lines, the attack was later known as "Pickett's Charge" and A the high watermark of the Confederate bid for secession.


Ghost hunters search for such proof of ghosts,  search as they might in dark places, and as the clock strikes midnight. This ghost was walking the battlefield on a sunny fall afternoon.

I have made this photograph into several items on zazzle.

"I'm Only here ..." Shirt

What is Summer for?

It is hot, humid, there is no football, except the version with the round ball called soccer.

Then it is just too hot for the cook in the kitchen.

Say folks why don't we exit to the yard and light up the  barbecue?

Great steak, peppers, chicken, and burgers and hot dogs.

The aroma of grilling fills the air, and whoops of laughter and happy memories in the making. Memorial Day  fades to July 4th, that in turn becomes Labor Day.

Here is the perfect summer shirt for the BBQ goer:

A Bumper Sticker or Two

I love old jokes.

You know the ones that make you groan and roll your eyes, because you remember the same joke doing the rounds when you were in school, probably when your grand-parents were in school too.


Well here is a golden oldie of a joke. As old as the hills, and lots of donkey's ears too.

Characters like Gnome can populate old holiday photographs, such as the one above or you can creat simple , "Naive" graphics if your drawing skill allows. This little house has appeared on several of my products but now has a second lease of life as Gnome's home.
