I think there is a lot of municipal property that's been bought for similar reasons.

DeanT - Posted - 08/28/2014:  16:03:15


I still smile every time I drive by it. And that was over 30 years ago...

OM45GE - Posted - 08/29/2014:  06:03:30


Did you sign your name to it?

chuckv97 - Posted - 08/29/2014:  09:32:56


I might sign someone else's name on it , like maybe Joe Namath. lol

OM45GE - Posted - 08/29/2014:  12:38:43


About 30 years ago a dump trailer hit a support for the only bridge out of Boston on Route 1 north. They had to replace a substantial part of the bridge where he hit it. I don't think he got to sign it.

chuckv97 - Posted - 08/29/2014:  12:50:54


Yeah,,what's with these dump trailer drivers hitting bridges? -there was one on the major highway between Buffalo and Toronto a few weeks ago. 'Course,I think I remember reading that he was drunk. The only place he's writing his name is on the wall of his cell at the County Jail.

OM45GE - Posted - 08/29/2014:  15:45:31


This guy went to jail too. They scooped up all the gravel that spilled in the wreck and he was about 20,000 over his over weight permit and speeding.

DeanT - Posted - 08/29/2014:  18:45:12


I got to sign the old one in blood...

OM45GE - Posted - 08/30/2014:  03:34:52


Ouch.

DeanT - Posted - 08/30/2014:  05:52:54


In fact that's what kept me from going to jail... went to the hospital instead

dat - Posted - 08/30/2014:  07:48:35


that's where the party ended.



my bride says that when we're driving somewhere in the morning and see a fresh wreck spot from the night before

DeanT - Posted - 08/30/2014:  08:43:21


That's exactly right... and my party was over on Jan 6 1991... whew... and we are the lucky ones to still talk about it.

dat - Posted - 09/04/2014:  08:04:44


jan 6 1991, been a long time,   made me think of long time gone , Waymore's blues



 



Well, I woke up this mornin' it was drizzlin' rain

Around the curve come a passanger train

Heard somebody yodel and a hobo moan

Jimmy he's dead, he's been a long time gone.

Been a long time gone, a long time gone.



If you wanna get to heaven, gotta D-I-E

you gotta put on your coat and T-I-E

Wanna get the rabbit out of the L-O-G

You gotta make a cold motion like D-O-G

Like D-O-G, like D-O-G, yeah.



Well, I got a good woman, what's the matter with me?

What makes me wanna love every woman I see?

I was tri'fling when I met her now I'm tri'fling again

And every woman she sees looks like the place I came in.

Looks like the place I came in place I came in.



I got my name painted on my shirt

I ain't no ordinary dude

I don't have to work

I don't have to work...

Those are confusing lyrics!

dat - Posted - 09/05/2014:  06:45:51

Hey cool video. Speaking of songs, I like Mello Yellow too, but who has a clue what that's about?

dat - Posted - 09/05/2014:  07:13:18


I like some of Pink Floyd too,  I never understood a lot of their songs either though, even when I drank a lot

DeanT - Posted - 09/05/2014:  09:52:16


The Wall is my favorite movie of all times, and I've watched it more times than I can count. I actually understand most of the songs now...

dat - Posted - 09/05/2014:  14:20:22


Pink Floys writers and Waylon were probably in the same mind set at many times

DeanT - Posted - 09/05/2014:  17:22:10


Comfortably numb...

OM45GE - Posted - 09/08/2014:  06:17:46


How's everyone doing? I didn't get on the system much last week.

chuckv97 - Posted - 09/08/2014:  08:42:23


Glad you're back Bill. Our collective imagination seemed to flag last week without your input- there weren't many postings.

OM45GE - Posted - 09/08/2014:  11:33:21


I'm working on a song to sing at Bruce's service. I've got it down fairly well but am not sure I can pull it off when the time comes.

chuckv97 - Posted - 09/08/2014:  11:50:41


That could be tough. Wishing you success with that. When is the service?

OM45GE - Posted - 09/08/2014:  12:06:31


Next Sunday. I used to run a folk group for a local church. We did a lot of funeral but none of them were for someone I was close to like this.

OM45GE - Posted - 09/08/2014:  12:14:43


Someone took a video of the crash. It doesn't show the impact but still is pretty powerful to me.



Ironically, there's an insurance ad you have to watch first. It's also odd that the newscaster is warning that the video may be disturbing while it's already running.



There's a funny picture of my friend with a rose in his teeth. He was a goof ball.

chuckv97 - Posted - 09/08/2014:  14:40:17


Wow- that's terrible. Was the 77 year old pilot in good health? Looks like he just totally lost control- or I guess the engine stalled out. Strange, and tragic.
Your friend Bruce looks like he was happy- go- lucky.

OM45GE - Posted - 09/08/2014:  18:25:43


You have to pass a physical to fly. He was an avid skier and quite good. When there is a plane crash with fatalities, the NTSB requires a full autopsy of everyone in the cockpit. They haven't published those yet. They did say the engine and airframe were fine pre-impact. We'll see what the full report says.



It looks like an airfoil stall which can happen if the angle of attack was too great or the airspeed too slow or the flaps not extended (which was not the case). They stall warning horn should have given them time to react if they were OK.



 

dat - Posted - 09/13/2014:  08:33:31


any word on the cause yet?

OM45GE - Posted - 09/17/2014:  04:41:43


Nothing yet.



The services were on Saturday for the owner pilot and Sunday for my friend. I'm still broken up about it all. Almost 500 people at both services.

chuckv97 - Posted - 09/17/2014:  06:39:53


Tough stuff,Bill. Did you get through your performance OK?

OM45GE - Posted - 09/17/2014:  06:56:05


The performance actually went great. I spoke about him before hand and broke up a couple of times but the song was fine. He had a tree service and one of his workers drove his chipper tuck up and parked it in front of the church. I could see it through a window and that really got to me. I used to work with him if he needed help and I had the time. He used to drive trucks for me in the winter when he wasn't working.

OM45GE - Posted - 09/17/2014:  07:02:07


Bruce had a nice old Gibson Hummingbird. We set it up between us. The day after the service his niece (his closest relative) called and asked if she could give it to me. That got to me pretty good too. I said I would unless his specified something different in his will.

chuckv97 - Posted - 09/17/2014:  07:09:25


The old hummingbirds were a nice guitar- a friend had one back in the '60's.

OM45GE - Posted - 09/17/2014:  07:43:46


I just saw a "preliminary" report on the crash which basically said the don't know what happened. The plane got up to a couple hundred feet and veered left and nose dived into trees. Everything mechanical was fine before the crash. They noted that the seats were appropriately locked in place. That's a preflight checklist item. There have been crashes cause by the seats sliding back when the plane noses up leaving the pilot unable to reach the control at a bad time. That didn't happen here.

Where the hell did summer go?

flake - Posted - 10/02/2014:  07:11:41


I'm a Fall guy, I guess because Forest Fire Season starts in Kentucky Oct. 1. Gives me a lot to listen to on the radio...brings back good memories. :-)

I like all of the seasons. It's one of the reasons I live in New England. That said, I was enjoying the summer and it just seemed to pass very quickly. 

dat - Posted - 10/02/2014:  14:46:46


I like all seasons, but cold makes me hurt,   I can't put on enough clothes to stay warm once it gets below freezing,   but I can always strip nekkid and drink a beer in the summer

DeanT - Posted - 10/02/2014:  18:02:01


I wish it was winter year round. I LOVE the cold... no yard work... no bugs... frozen dog poo

chuckv97 - Posted - 10/02/2014:  22:59:16


Never mind the poo, how about a frozen butt all winter?- after years and years of shivering,I like to head south for the coldest months.

OM45GE - Posted - 10/03/2014:  05:58:24


I find it easier to put on enough clothes to stay warm than to take off enough to stay cool, but I don't mind being hot either.



I was skiing Mount Cranmor in NH on year when it was 10 below with a 30 MPH wind. I was comfy but didn't take anything off when I was outside. I've ridden the motorcycle comfortably at 0 F with an electric vest and gloves.

DeanT - Posted - 10/03/2014:  06:04:11


I bundle up and go running and bike riding and love it in the cold. The colder the better. In the summer even if it was legal to run nekid, it would still be too hot. 

OM45GE - Posted - 10/03/2014:  06:10:00


It's definitely easier to head out in just shorts and tee shirt when it's warm, but I love the cold too.

dat - Posted - 10/03/2014:  06:50:40


One good thing about winter is that spring is right around the corner

OM45GE - Posted - 10/03/2014:  07:41:00


Good point.

DeanT - Posted - 10/03/2014:  11:01:14


I hate spring with a passion. It's nothing but a sneeze fest, a bugfest, and you have to start mowing the grass and trimming bushes. The only thing good about spring is that summer and fall are coming soon so that it can be winter again.

DeanT - Posted - 10/03/2014:  11:02:01


... oh yeah... and all the frozen dog poo thaws out in the spring....

OM45GE - Posted - 10/03/2014:  11:12:23


Other than that, how do you like it? big
