Amish buggy..


Quite often I will be on a run and go through the Amish community. There are stores just outside of Rochester that sell their products. Today I saw this buggy at one of their outlets.

C_J_L Opens Missouri Bureau!


Ron Logston from Missouri has just been appointed by our CEO/Editor, Mr. Mark Ivy to run the Missouri bureau.

The Squirrel :)


These mammals are all over, you see them everywhere. From your home back and front yards, to apartment complexes, etc. And they can be annoying, running around, bopping out in front of cars. And they don’t hibernate. So they are around most of the time. However, when it gets brutally cold, they stay in their dens.
To add a bit of humor to this, I’m sure many of you have heard the saying, “Oh that guy is squirrely“. LOL In fact I remember a driver I use to work with his nickname was “Squirrel“.
Yes folks, squirrels have made a name for themselves. Even streets are named after them. LOL

Old Country ‘Stone” Bridge


While on a run yesterday I remembered this bridge. I have been meaning to shoot a picture of it but the timing wasn’t right. But yesterday it was. This is on Route 39 in Avon, New York. It has held its age quite well. I enjoy seeing old bridges, especially the old iron ones.

Old Ford ‘Fire’_Truck


I’m always on the move as head of the Rochester C_J_L bureau. And I cover a lot of miles. Yesterday I came across yet “another” old fire truck. This one isn’t anywhere near as old as last weeks that I posted. This is an F_750 if I remember correctly. But I venture to say it’s 30 to 40 years old. I didn’t get chance to get the year.

Hitching a Ride


A little earlier this morning, I scooted to the store for some breakfast preparations. This guy decided to ride along. I invited him to stay, but he declined.

Antique ‘Fire Truck’…


While at work yesterday, I needed some tools. So I went into 1 of our shops that I hadn’t yet been into. I discovered this old treasure. She’s either a 1941 or 1946. One of my bosses toys.

Old Cars, History!


Yes folks, here’s an old Ford. I believe it’s a 1956. A pure classic, a fine piece of machinery!

Repair Shop Gardening!


Yes folks, yesterday I took my truck into the shop for the front end to be aligned. While there, I walked around and noticed this unique design. An old diesel engine block used for flowers. I was amused by this and wanted to share it.
