One day, Uncle Tabby decided to face his fears, and go riding on a horse.

It was easy for him to get on, and he was doing just fine until the horse started to go faster, and he started slipping off the saddle. He couldn’t hold on to the horse, and his head started bumping the ground.

He was almost knocked unconscious when the Wal-Mart manager came out, and unplugged the machine.

Good Evening!
Perfect Sunday here! We took a little trip today and visited a beautiful lighthouse. It would be wonderful to travel around to take pics of all the lighthouses! We dropped $60 to take the ferry out to the island and it was worth every penny! The campground even had yurts to rent! A good day.

"""HEY EVERYBODY"" !!!....and Wolf, thanks for the "well wish'n." That tornado just "BARELY" missed us, it went thru a little to the south of us but we sure got the tail winds, lightning and rain. Once again, it blew our transformer out up there on the pole and flat fried our Comcast network. We had to wait so long because repairmen were so-o-o-o far behind because of the two recent storms. We had to buy another new modum for the computers but......here I am!

I finally got the galvanized piping taken in to the "bending" company for my hand rails along the sidewalk. They did a great job of bending the pieces like I wanted. Now, gotta assemble it all and set it in Sacrete.

The Belle and I bought enough man-made field stone to make a stone walk way to the storage shed. I've had enough mud, etc. But I really have a poor back and have to take it very slow. Three operations on my lower back..........that's enough!

We caught two young coons in the homemade trap last week, they looked so cute but pitiful looking up and out the heavy screened door.......they walked,...or I should say ran! Have I said this...?...the mature coon before them chewed his way out, had to patch the floor. But the latest is (was) a ground hog eating away in the back yard. I kept waiting for him to get into the trap but nope! I snuck out with the shot gun and sent him to his eternal home. I "DID NOT" want him setting up housekeeping "under" the yard.

Ferry.. There is a ferry across Mobile Bay from Dauphin Island to Spanish Fort Alabama but I do not recall it costing anything. That is where (during the Civil War), Union Admiral David Farragut said "Damn the torpedoes (mines), Full steam ahead" and captured the Confederate port city. Later he also captured New Orleans and gained control of the Mississippi River with U.S. Grant's seige of Vicksburg on the river.

Mississippi Man had previously spoken about the town of Corinth, which was a key rail head on the Chattanooga-Memphis line with an intersection coming up from Mobile, Alabama. Interrupting the flow of goods with the capture of those 2 port cities, Vicksburg and Corinth was the beginning of the end for the Confederacy and allowed Sherman (who replaced the promoted Grant) to march south from Chattanooga to Atlanta and then on to the sea at Savannah, then north to Charleston and Columbia South Carolina where the secession first began. It is a very interesting area to visit and there is also a nice light house one can see on Tybee Island at Savannah.

A note on Southern humor... After Katrina some guy near Dauphin Island had put his rural mail box up on a 30 foot tall post and had attached a sign reading "For Air Mail" lol

AW,
We have a mailbox right down the street like that and I have seen another, somewhere on HWY 110 which runs from Ardmore, TN to Fayetteville, TN, right on the TN/AL line where we lived for many years. Little village with an intersection, two corner stores and a blinking caution light. Headed north from that intersection toward Coldwater, TN is the most beautiful 10 mile stretch of road where the trees form a perfect, covered arch in the summer. A little brook runs alongside the road and it is totally flat and straight. One of the prettiest stretch of road you could ever hope to see and I have traveled the back-roads of this great Republic for many years.
I love ferries and I am lucky enough, right here on the Ohio river, to live between two. A tugboat and barge runs year round from Augusta, KY to Ripley, OH. Not many cars, trucks at a time but he comes right back if there is a line. Worth waiting for, saves many miles from driving to the bridge. http://augustaky.com/ferry-cam-2/ They could have done this better but mildly interesting.
Perfect day to mow this monster lawn but by the time I get out of the office I am not going to want to tackle it. I screwed up, reached above my head with both arms and an angled pitchfork to rake some hay off the top level round bale and ripped the upper right nylon threads that hold my pain pump in place completely loose. Hurt like heck and now they will have to admit me to go in and sew it back again. I know better, wife was right there and said don't do it. So there's another birthday present for her 60th today. She gets to say "I told you!" Such is Life....

Ah, the joys of spring !! You and belle have enough projects going on! I like the stone walk idea.. I brought home some Pennsylvania blue stone last fall.. Between my car and the truck bed i ended up with 50-60 sq feet! It's the trim pieces from larger cut stones but the price was right: free! It's different lengths and widths as well as different depths so it will be a giant puzzle to lay into a walkway. One of those "honey do" jobs. Lol.

The skunk nest problem seems to have disappeared while I was gone. Lol. His nice! I've not had to deal with groundhogs or raccoons but, knock on wood....I won't have any!

Ferrys. Generally I like them!! The one car ferry we used to cross on in western KY is a little nerve wracking though, but we always made it across. The larger one we crossed the Mississippi River on was quite a bit larger and one time, I know the chain across the ramp opening was touching our bumper--we were that close to the edge! The ferry across Northumberland Strait was massive. Lower level held many semi trucks with trailers. The middle two decks held passenger cars and light trucks and the upper deck held benches for those wanting to bask in the sun. I don't remember the price for the smaller ferrys but that one was $40 round trip ( in 1992). Yesterday the ferry was $60 with our senior discount. It held around 20 cars and you couldn't see the water from the main deck as the metal walls were about 4 foot high and the metal ramps were lifted to cover the ramp opening. The island, Kelleys Island, has some natural glacial gorges that's very interesting. There's an ancient "Inscription Rock" from the Indians time, the houses were all unique --no cookie cutter houses there for sure !

Those "airmail" boxes are a blast from my childhood past. What I also still enjoy seeing are the "See Rock City" mailboxes and barn writings. Also the "Ruby Falls" advertisements.
Good times!
