A Look Back

Joker!! This is Anita, she sent me the post card. She and her Hubby, Mike live in Panama and just love it. Mike and I were in Viet Nam together. I post pictures of hers from time to time, they love it down there. I will tell her you especially liked that Post Card that will tickle her. Thanks..


The old fella that owns that fantastic,
" Museum of American History"


Protects It






I will save the rest for another day I want to escape this dynamic, socialistic takeover of the great nation of America.

You folks enjoy ...

Hey Big Guy..., it's nitrogen oxide. NOX for short. LOL any who, Pappy...how come you never took me there before? How cool is that huge fricken Diesel engine that runs that mine? Man...can you imagine the fricken winding for the alternator that goes with that thing? Bet it's as tall as the engine it's self!

Pappy...this is a great blog today...thank you Sir...

One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. "Which road do I take?" she asked. "Where do you want to go?" was his response. "I don't know," Alice answered. "Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter." -

If you don't know where you are going you will never get there...

That is down in AZ east of Flagstaff. If you remember I tried to get you to slow down when you crossed the USA. You in N TX me in S TX. When I left San Antonio I went North to 40 then took 10 days to get to Flagstaff. I got off 40 at every scenic place I found then road around till my ass got sore then went West till I got to another pretty place, and so on and so on. Took 16 days from Amarillo to Vegas. If you remember you were in the rain in Amarillo at a truck stop I said hang around a few days I'd be up there.

Anyway it was one of the neatest junk yards I have seen. I will put some more pics up again some day.

Joker, that post card I got from a friend. I don't know where she got it. She photoed it sent it to me. I just thought it appapro (is that a word Chess?) with that "American Museum" Glad you liked it Joker
