straycat are you getting or did you get the thunder storms we had here in Kansas
The weather guy says more thunder storms are on the way. We've been away for a while so I don't know about last week. No flooding so far.
Morning. Had very light rain. Now sun. Have a good one.
I went down to third street early this morning to get some pics of the May Fest vendors area before the festivities start for the final day. These pics represent only a small area. In the condition I'm in there's no way I could walk from one end of the area to the other. That's almost half a mile, one way. Enjoy the pics.
Yesterday, May 5th, the MC called on and recognized the area fire departments and issued them certificates of appreciation for their heroic efforts. In 1987 the downtown districts of Leesville and Rosepine were almost destroyed by fire. It was through the selfless efforts of these people that the two cities were saved.
Looks like a good time jeff
When I hear the thunder boom, I unplug everything electronic, Save time dealing with our insurance by not cooking the computer, phones and TV.
I had to go to the Pittsburgh area for my daughter’s soccer game today. I was driving down the road when I saw some CN rolling stock. I never knew they had any rolling in this area but it appears they service some of the coal yards along the Mon.
Another thing I noticed was that the tracks going up the Allegheny are now reduced to a single track up near New Kensington. I guess they took them out awhile back on the West side of the river but when I was a kid there were a double main line out from Pittsburgh.
[FONT="]One last thing I was driving near Cresson last week and noticed a train bridge that was clearly marked Pennsylvania Railroad. I though it was cool to see the grand old name still around after all of these years. Someday I should take a few photographs of these.
Oh I don't really unplug any of my stuff since I have replacement cost on my farm owners policy. I figure if it gets hit I just end up with a new and better computer. Besides it is a covered cause of loss and what happens when the storm hits and I'm not home to unplug it.
Good morning and top 'o' the day to all of ye.

It shoots pellets at 450 FPS and with metal siloet should targets should prove 'iibe great fum. It will take care of the starlings that raiding my bird feeders too.
Picture below is the model I bought. These things are not cheap, not like the bb guns we had as kids.
Does it work for squirrels? jawdrop
We have a lot of moles and yesterday one of the wild stray cats around here did an exterminating job on one. They ruin the lawn in record time.
You should see what pocket gophers do!
HI everyone, been a bit. We have been real busy the last several weeks with garden work, putting in a pig pen (4 feeders) and getting ready to put in a few head of beef for our own meat.
I should start laying track later this week!

Yall have fun,
Today is Harry Truman's birthday, a holiday for state workers. Born in Lamar Missouri he is noted as the President who dropped the bomb ending WWII.
If you ever get to the Air and Space museum in DC the Enola Gay is on display.
Morning. tired from all day and then all night meetings for Town. We did pull an upset to the County Fire/EMS leaders and the County Commisioners sided with us [we did allow the Fire/EMS folks to save face].
Pennman, did I miss something. SIL wounded??? Disabled??? Hats off to all serving in Iraq [a war that should not have been]. These soilders went any way and have done a great job. Those disabled deserve the highest salute and should be taken care of for life.
CN in PA. Yes. Enola Yard out of Harrisburg PA.
CN engines waiting for crew change. Then coupled to train and pulled out. Lots of the rolling stock was CN.
Have a great day.
I had to make a trip to Cumberland, MD today. Again I was pleasantly surprised to see a bunch of CN rolling stock just outside the Narrows. Cumberland is one of those special places for rail fans. Sandpatch is so close it has to make this area a haven for trains.
Lunch though wasn’t as good. An elderly woman passed out in the parking lot and when head first to the pavement. Unfortunately I was the first to her side. I comforted her until the ambulance came doing my best to keep the sun out of her face. While I did end up buying lunch I had lost my appetite.
Last night my dad and I put on our plexiglass guards to stop any possible train-pavement meetings. The engine shed is next, and that's a problem. All the engine sheds I can find are either to expensive, to european, or both! I personaly say that the layout should get the Walthers Cornerstone Engine shed ($30 bucks at our LHS and looks awesome to me), but dad says that the shed should only be where the train is stored at night to protect it from the elements. We may have to scratchbuild this. Any help guys?
At the Wright-Patterson National Air Force Base and Museum in Dayton,OH , the 'Bockscar' (yes, that's what it's called!) is the biggest plane there and it droped the other bomb on Japan. They also have a C-130, stealth fighter, and an actual SATURN V rocket along with Apolo 15's command module!
