Post by: BigRedDog on June 08, 2013, 08:03:09 AM
I'm kind of being forced into using Twitter a little more lately... 

and like anything else you learn more with more exposure...

This link will take you to some awesome photos...   sample below :) :) :)

I'm not sure what I was doing on this day back in 1991 but I sure do wish I'd been sitting and listening to what these two guys had to say...

I wonder whatever happened to the 2nd guy in line :o :o :o 

This looks like it very well may have been taken in Germany...   he was stationed about 60 miles south of where I was.

All you Beatles fans have seen this photo hundreds of times...   right ??? ??? ???

Not exactly...  but close...  had to be within minutes of the one that became the cover photo for Abbey Road...  note the guy in the brown walking on the sidewalk...  I wonder if he had any idea of 'who' was walking back and forth...  or why :-\ :-\ :-\

No...   he just takes their $$$...   I'm sure that's why he's laughing!

Well, since I don't have any children at home that would be 'mischievous' to actually try this (although I do have a few of those same Hi-Liters) I'll post this picture from Twitter...   I am a little curious how long it took for this to happen though 8* 8* 8*

The note on Twitter says this picture was taken in Michigan but it didn't say where.  Those look like box elder trees in the background so it could well be right around here. 

The pickup is an early 1950s 'split window' Chevrolet.  I remember riding in my grandfather's when it was almost new and I think his was a '52.  His was a dark forest green which is what this one looks like it probably is under the moss!

My guess is that it was a low profile iphone camera or something like that.  The person who took it had to have found a taller dandelion and you can tell it is a mature one ready to loose seed at the next strong wind.

I heard about this train derailing last night down in Tontogany (south and west of Toledo) but I didn't realize how 'close' it was to the fire station!

I'm glad I wasn't sitting in the library and reading the latest SI Swimsuit Issue when it hit!!!

This looks like the exterior view of the library 'after' the crash:

I've been to a few train derailments over the years.  It always amazes me just how 'far' everything can slide or fly or roll...

Then I pull up to a rail crossing to wait for the train to fly by at 45 mph and I see that white line 20 feet from the rails.  I usually don't get that close.  I've actually had people pull around me to get closer to the train while it's speeding by.  I guess they showed me how to drive :o :o :o 

Then when I see tanker cars carrying hazmats I realize that probably a half a mile might be a safer distance to stop at the crossing!!!

I didn't find these on Twitter but they did appear there so I guess they qualify.

The river walk pic is great,,,,,,,,sun position makes many a good picture.

I was in that area about that time.....I was curious to see how the dams were holding up.  Hard to tell right now but they looked mostly intact so far.

Thats an FLD Freightliner chassis.  Vernon Twp is Mount Vernon, Ohio, by Columbus.

That was a decent photoshop chop job on the one with the railroad tracks laid in like that.

Apparently the University of Michigan included a $30K moving allowance for all these assistant football coaches they've recently hired.  But, that's not just a 'go rent a truck and start packing'...

Apparently since those equipment transports are just sitting and not being used this time of year they actually send a very identifiable 'MICHIGAN' transport to pick up the household...   makes quite an impact in southern California this time of year ;) ;) ;)

If you're out driving and decide to speed on the roads with the weather we've had you should maybe pick your 'targets' better...

Hitting the Ohio Highway Patrol car was probably a big mistake in the long run ;) ;) ;)

and it wasn't either one of these cars...  it was a semi-truck and trailer!!!

The worst feeling would be if you're the bad guy and you woke up this morning and saw a couple dozen of these monsters aimed 'at you' rather than away from you. 

And the Army goes rolling along...
