Nice pictures, Rick. I especially like the antiqued one. But one thing that jumped out at me was that your last name is PRIEBE???? My Great Aunt Rose was married to a Priebe! Who knows, we might be long-lost, extremely distant cousins - and I'm not talking the CO to MA distance either.

Most of my back garden taken from the roof of my workshop. The crops in the fields behind are mostly barley for the Scotch whisky industry.

My father was born and raised in Minnesota (as was I), but he is technically my stepfather. My biological father deserted us when I was 9, and Mom remarried when I was 14, and my step dad adopted us kids (my birth name was Schultz). So while there may be something there in the tiny branches of the family tree, it would be pretty obscure.

You might be a tiny branch on the tree, but I'm pretty sure I'm one of the nuts on the ground. :D

This is my house - built originally around 1830 and extended in 1896. It is typical of houses in the area and is built from stone quarried near the village and roofed with Scottish slate from the west coast.

It was probably owned by a person of relative wealth. I think the stone building at the rear was a fuel & animal feed store.

Very nice photos, Capt. Thanks for posting them. Your summer house looks like a peaceful place to read a book - or to sip some of that Scotch whisky.

Also, welcome to DC.
