Knock, Knock, Knocking on Heaven's Door by 

James A. Garfield, the 20th president of the United States, is one of eight former presidents born in Ohio. He is buried in what I’d call an ostentatious 180-foot-tall memorial building in Lake View Cemetery, Cleveland, that’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This knocker is one on the weathered blue doors at the entrance.

I’m a semi-retired newspaper editor/writer who loves photography, especially flower macros, lighthouses, old mills and covered bridges.

    Knock knock! Let me out of this ALTERNATE UNIVERSE! lol! (Not at all happy with these changes! But decided I would stick it out.) Maybe over several weeks we’ll find our way around????

    Cool shot, love the textures and the colors!

  • Thanks, Nadya! Once I discovered how to restore the “old” default feed, I’ve been fairly comfortable, but I’m sure it’s somewhat of a nightmare for group hosts. There are a few other things I don’t much like (as in the groups I belong to on the left side are in the order I joined them rather than alphabetical as they used to be, but they’re not things I use much anyway. Hang in there!

    But Monnie, what if someone answered. ? I’d be off like a rocket. Seriously though, really detailed shot with great caption. Cheers. Tony. P.S. Raining so hard now it’s deafening.

  • LOL – you’re right about that – I’d be leaving sneaker tracks on the path getting out of there! Sure wish we could trade you a little sun for some of your rain.

    Great-looking knocker … love the texture and detail! …… on your reply to Nadya about the groups.. I hadn’t figured out they were listed by order of joining ~ it’s horrible … makes so much more sense to be in alphabetical order!

  • Thanks, Susie! The groups are still in alphabetical order when you upload a photo and want to add it to groups. Have no idea why it’s the other way on the left side – in fact, Jack’s the one who figured out they’re in order of joining (which makes absolutely no sense to me).
