Horsing around somewhere in western Maryland

Sep 30, 2012

I jammed on the brakes the moment we spotted three horses in a pasture alongside a back road somewhere in western Maryland.

Pat and Ken Moss praise Orion’s Attic house clean-out service in Bethesda MD...

Every space was filled – and they cleared it all out. We had four (giant) dumpsters of trash that they cleared out. We are completely satisfied with everything Orion’s Attic did. They actually went beyond our expectations. And now we can sell the house, which was not possible before. The first day they came, we knew they were going...
