They say it's a fast mover...

Thanks B...
Power loss is NOT a big deal... Ya know we are prepared for that

What a bloody night ... Heavy winds,rain.Lighting strikes all over the place... The good note we got 7ths of an inch in the rain gauge...

We have power... It flickered most of the night...The last wave of storms rolled through 3am...

Well it's still berry picking season here on the farm..
It starts with BlackCaps(black raspberries) then Dew berries,and now BlackBerries...

Ya'll have got to see my berry picking outfit...
I go packing when I go picking on the mountain ...
You might ask why??
Bears~ MountainLions ~Wolves~Timberrattlers/Copperheads ..
I go alone ..As I said before the Cattle show up sometimes..
So they help keep watch....

Ok here ya go..




The tall boots let me get into the brambles
The hat for shade.. And the .45 just in case ...

We have a momma bear w/3 cubs on the mountain, they are so small and soooo cute..But very dangerous..
And where I go picking it's there territory..
Plus the Mountain lion killed 2 calves 1 farm over last week..

Ah Life on the farm.. I wouldn't trade it for any thing...

I made 2 batches of jam and 1 pie in the oven .. It smells so good...

Yeah yeah I know I need to get my RR's up...
I have just been to busy...To write one up..

Howdy LD! I finally checked out your link in your sig line. Nice work! I read some at the start and a little at the end. I will need some time to catch everything in between. I like your pics, comments and outlook on life. (And I love your berry pickin' outfit)

I hope to catch you at one of the local get togethers. Take care and keep the good words coming.

I KNOW.

I was gonna call HB out, well cuz that pic is kinda...um...sexy. I have some old boots, but they don't look like that. Oldest pair I got in 84 though--I'm guessing those aren't as old as that--since you two are still in your 30s.

Part 1 .....

Well I thought I would write about our trip to see our friends in Ohio and the Ohio Picnic....
We left not to early in the morning...As we only had a 300 mile day...
We headed down our main road 61... Ooo I think I can see ....



Yes the camels are out I like them.. They are NOT always out by the road..



There is my riding buddy We took the back way,up..



We had packed food with us so we stopped at the Big bridge..



Great views..



I had soy bologna sandwich ...



Highbinder had Roast beef..



After we finished eating,we headed the dragons back up north..
Found some sweet roads...



This was a real fun ride US 60 I think it was..



Then we hit the road along the river...



Saw some old towns ...



It was real nice and cool for the middle of May..



We went past the Glen Ferris Inn ... It opened in 1839 ...
What a cool old building..



This little town was called Falls View..



We are still on US 60 W... As you know I like old Fire houses...



We rode through Glasgow,Crossed over the river a few times..



We hopped on the Slab for a few miles ... Through Charleston..
I like to snap this shot of the Gold Dome there..



Look at all the people in the stadium.. There must be a game going on...



Hey that's Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue OX..



Saw a few of these ,MoJo told me they are coal fired plants..



The name of this place and the pic tickled me...



That's the turn for Winfield Locks and Dam ..



That's the Kanawha River..



They are filling the silo up with something feed maybe...



We are on 62 now...



A lot of cool old farms on this road...



Ohio barns are sure big and grand..



Some are just fine ...We rode past more small towns like Leon...



Then took the new bypass.. It was getting very hot out...



On our way to Point Pleasant,But we will NOT stop to see Moth Man...



The bypass went for a good ways .. And was very cool..



That's the bridge that fell that cold December night in 1967



Can you imagine just how cold it was..That night..
Point Pleasant and Ohio when the bridge suddenly and unexpectedly collapsed. The rush hour traffic crossing the bridge was caught in the middle. Cars were sent into the icy river, and 46 people were killed. Only 44 of those bodies were found, and they were all buried in the same cemetery in Gallipolis, Ohio.



A black and orange oil well..Or maybe it's gas..



This barn was very nice looking... We are back in to farm land heading into the rolling hills of Ohio..



Now we are on RT 7... It was a nice road..

Until we hit this huge plant.
It really made my eye burn..

This is the Kyger Creek Plant



WOW the stacks are really tall !!!



It's really a big plant...



Now that s a lot of cement to make them big stacks the cone shape thingys..



After a while we were to meet up with our buddy MoJo..
We stopped at a little gas station.. We had only stopped for about 10 min.. And MoJo showed up...
He took point to lead us to his home...



We still had about 30 miles to go..So I took pic of more things along the way..



I just like the way this looked..



And all the yellow..



I liked the buildings..All in a row..



I just liked this tree...It was begging for a shot..



Just cool..



Mail Pouch..



This is a neat farmstead..



A very interesting corner..



Welcome to Coolville !! Yeah we are almost to MoJo's place..



We have arrived .. Sitting on his back deck over looking a hay field..



One of his neighbors stopped by to say Howdy..The old timer is Denny..



This is Sindee MoJo's mate chatting with Connie, she is Denny's wife of 65 yrs.?
If I can recall...


Everyone needs a Gargoyle watching over the shop..



Well It's getting late ,I'll write more very soon...
So stay tuned ...
Till next time...
