Tonight’s sunset viewed from our house.
Points taken…gulp I shall got look into it do you think a 17 HMR will be too big?Good Morning! 58F with mild rainfall this fine morning. It's going to be a beautiful day; except for the heavy smoke in the air.
I hope the rains help out on all the fires, but, I just don't think it's enough.
I'm not sure if the local wildlife is having a noticeable time with the smoke:

Thank you for all the likes on past posts!
Willie - The story on that 600 grand over-the-rails pedestrian white elephant. There is a newer road traffic crossing at that location. CN would not allow the town to build the road crossing over the tracks until they had that monolith built and in place. A complete garbage disposal of tax payers dollars. The only people I've ever seen on that bridge are fire-fighters training and children playing. Never anybody who is trying to get someplace.
Thanks for the comment, but, I don't usually make posts unless I have photos. That's just an integral part of who I am. I have the capability and the willingness to post photos, so I do, just like you.
Jaz avalley - Thank you for the wonderful photo of the extremely well modeled abandoned vehicles. Except, there is a couple of issues. There are no bullet holes in the vehicle bodies and the windows arn't smashed out just for fun. They still look like one could climb in and drive away.
Abandoned cars always have bullet holes, no glass and no wheels:

Sherrel - Bless the fine looking MIL. Better pay attention to her, she looks like she could still run the marathon. You're a very lucky fella to have you're elders still with you.
Here's a close-up of a garden bee. It struggled trying to fly with that big body and short, stubby wings. It could get airborne, though, I don't know how. It's just a photo I share for the conversation:

Have a great day, everyone!
I would say try to find a reason to not go, it is obvious you care about her health, and Covid is indeed getting bad again I saw Las Vegas had an issue out of the ordinary, show her this….Australia avoid the worse in the beginining now succumbing to the Indian/Delta plus variant, Netherlands removed lockdowns and masked etc and 3 weeks later had to publically apologise when figures when ballistic the UK has just allowed nightclubs to open…..yeah well 2m or 1m distancing will not apply kissing close dancing and masks sighs I am guessing our hospitals will soon be full of young ‘adults’ who could not keep their hands to Therese,vets…no I do not blame them I blame the government, yes yes I know companies are screaming at them but hospitals and Covid figures should be more important than this.Morning all,
Clearish and 65° in Doo-Dah today. High expected of 90°. I say clearish as there is the haze from the fires out west. I hope all in that direction stay safe. Wife wants another try at the 2-day trip on Route 66, so next Friday we're going to attempt it. I'm a bit reluctant as that where the spike in covid cases are in both Kansas and Northeastern Oklahoma. We are both vaccinated, but she's got other issues that covid in any form will complicate.
BBL, got to get a cuppa before the masses show up.
Thank you very much for your answer. My last question: maybe a bird's eye view or something like that? Thanks.Christian - You're not the first to ask; I am presently working on a rough track plan with pencil and paper. For whatever reason, I haven't had any luck with any track planning software. I downloaded Anyrail and I can't even get benchwork or a room diagram drawn. I tried SCARM and got a rectangle for the room, but no luck with the benchwork! I am normally somewhat computer literate, but I never had any training or experience with CAD. I am sure that I will have an "ah ha" moment with one of them at some time.
I assume this was for the bee?Points taken…gulp I shall got look into it do you think a 17 HMR will be too big?
In the 1990's I was walking with a friend to get the mail, we had one of those mailboxes in a row. As I was walking I accidently hit a bumblbee with my left hand. Of course he stung me several times. My hand swelled up so much that I couldn't work for several nights. I was a musician and left hand was needed to play my bass.I assume this was for the bee?
As a kid there was a huge bumble bee flying around out in the woods in our backyard where I was out shooting my Daisy BB gun. I started taking pot shots at it. I kept thinking I was missing, but eventually he was dead I went and looked and the big fluffy body part was full of holes... (Not something I am proud of, but typical for early teenage boys)
+100 for bass. Yes, if you are right handed, the left hand is super important there unless you can tap everythingIn the 1990's I was walking with a friend to get the mail, we had one of those mailboxes in a row.

Tom O .... Thanks for commenting, but it was the sun. I was told the unusual hazy sky results from smoke from the major wild fires in the Western States which is now affecting air quality in Eastern States. The smoke is moving thousands of miles in the upper atmosphere.Garry, great picture of the moon. We went to the airport last night and while our moon wasn’t as big it still had the orange coloring. Hit the pillow at 2am. I just never think of taking moon pictures, well done.
