Thanks to Bryan for this pic from O’s opening day.
Yes, MDP is going backwards here, but at this point, we just do what we want and I don’t think anyone will be upset about it.
It’s opening day and this year the stadium is making a big deal about putting out new statues and all sorts of other attractions. I’ve always liked the retired numbers in front of the stadium. To celebrate Earl’s statue, and for those who are not offended by strong language, (that’s a disclaimer) we can also celebrate with this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kl-4FSRYagc
We don’t have the massive square and flat plots of land that the midwest has. The plots are often irregularly spaced, Even on the eastern shore, where the land is flat and ample, you’ll still have oddly shaped plots with diagonal roads cutting through fields or a random river running in betwwen two farms. In western Maryland farmers are constrained by topography as much as by historic land grants or property transactions, and the combination leads to some interesting farmscapes.
MDP took a trip to Western Maryland and filled it’s photo coffers with lots of new material this weekend.
Today we feature a picture of the Drane House, the 0ldest standing structure in Garrett County. Though it’s been though some restorations and reconstruction, the house was originally built in 1800. It sits next to the town of Accident Md.
