From the 20th Century – A Real ‘Steam Shovel’


These days machines like this are designed much different and are called “excavators“. ¬†However, back in the day, these were called “steam shovels“. They were actually powered by steam.
As you can see by the sign, it has gone on the national registry.

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

‘Elvis’ Week


http://www.whec.com/news/elvis-fans-graceland-anniversary-presley/4571543/?cat=565

Yes folks, this week is the week for Elvis memories. It’s the 40th anniversary of his death. I remember “The King” and saw him perform at Kleinhans Stadium in Buffalo, New York many years ago.

Old German’ Neighborhood


Folks on behalf of R_Logston, from our Missouri C_J_L Bureau due to technical difficulties he’s having, he asked me to share this with our viewers at C_J_L.
The picture is from the old German neighborhood in Bethel, Missouri.

‘Tranquility’…


This morning I visited one of my best friends homes. Had coffee with him, his wife and daughter. A beautiful family.
At the entrance to his home is this bench at the beginning of the private drive. I’ve always liked it because it is shaded. I’m not a great fan of a lot of sun. To me this is a perfect, peaceful setting.

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.
