Well, maybe you can meet up and hitch a ride with CG when he comes . On my end it's a serious offer. Anyone who wants to drop me a line and stop by, stay over, or whatever is welcome here. I don't even care if you just drop in unannounced!

New tools, all Made in the USA. I love those hammers. I somehow have managed to lose two. I hold on to my tools forever, but not those for some reason. I call it my "Li'l Thumper". The first one fell off the tractor. I searched hard for it, but couldn't find it. Bought another, then that winter I found the first one and gave it to my son. I have no idea what happened to Li'l Thumper #2, but I saw my son still had #1, so he didn't take it. Li'l Thumper #3 I hope stays with me

I found this one on the road. Don’t think it could have bounced that far

I hate tags on shirts just irritates my neck

Side of this big ol rock broke off. Looks like "curtains" that you see in caves. Water was to deep or I would have gone for a close up.

Re: Random Photos ‘You took’

How's this for random? When I found this in an antique shop it was labeled "bacon press". Really? An aluminum bacon press, ey? Must be the lightweight model for making curly bacon . I was thinking it might be a pot strainer but what do I know?

Tim great pics. I really like old depots. Looked that one up, fun little museum. I'm sure glad these parts of our history are being saved! If you ever get a chance watch the movie "The Station Agent". Here is a link to that depot.

Re: Random Photos ‘You took’

The depot in my town, Mt. Airy, had always been a pharmacy at the people end and a medical center in the cargo end. But recently the big side became a museum I have yet to visit. They also placed a restored caboose across Main St from the depot recently. They built a canopy to shelter it. Mt. Airy came about with the coming of the B&O RR. My house is older than the town.

A sign said Do Not Touch,, but the kid in me said "stick your fingers in some of them "" Bullet Holes " {{probably from a Tommy Gun}} ... It was in a dark room and all by it's self and I did stick my finger in a few bullet holes...

Re: Random Photos ‘You took’

The B&C car along with some German staff car were in a traveling display back in 1972 when I saw them. Not long after the movie was out I think.

Yep,, I think it is the same car that is rented out to different casinos and places for a sum of money..

Here is what I found on it ,,and it does not mention the place I seen it at Truckee California about 4-5 years ago. ??

Peter Simon II
The death car again changed its owner in 1977 when Toddy sold it for $175,000 ($725,000 in today's worth) to Peter Simon II, who displayed it at his casino Pop's Oasis in Nevada. About ten years later, the casino closed and he sold the car to the owners of Whiskey Pete's Hotel and Casino in Primm, Nevada.May 23, 2017

Attachment 2063995
A little bit of useless Bonnie and Clyde history. Clyde loved the Ford V8 and stole them as often as he could. One of their getaway cars was recovered and it was discovered the Tommy gun rounds (.45 ACP) were only making dents in the doors and not penetrating. When the pair was ambushed many of the officers had Browning automatic rifles in .30-06, which obviously did the deed.

As for random photos, here is a picture I took on one of my favorite hike in fishing spots in northern Arkansas. This is what you see when you first exit the trail from the woods. Bluff is about 100 feet tall and the water is probably 15-20 feet deep at the base off to the left out of the photo.

Re: Random Photos ‘You took’

I saw the car at whiskey Pete's, it matches the the historic pictures. So I think it's the real car. My .02 for whatever it's worth.
