...happy and safe...


...through a locked cage...


A squirrel in a cage ain't happy, no matter what. As for 'safe', guess we know that wasn't the case. I feel sorry for the squirrel, the human, not so much.

DFTST..

LOL, Vic. This is the Critter Cafe. Anything that wanders onto my turf gets fed. Just ask my exasperated neighbors!!!

Even Crocodiles and Alligators? ;) Chomp, chomp.

What else could be done with the stale possums?

Sources close to the investigation said initial reports indicate the semi was crossing the tracks when it was struck by the train, but this has not been confirmed by police.


Or the train swerved to hit the truck. Only two possibilities I can come up with.

And before you know it, Shaven Yak Day will be here.



Time to hang our diapers, fill our rubber boots with cole slaw and wait for the great Shaven Yak to arrive in his enchanted canoe.

Aerial view of central US crop circles.

Very strong evidence of ET poo circles.


Obviously visitors from Uranus.

They won't even allow other UPs. Just their own 844, 3985, and eventually 4014.


About 10 years ago, when UP 844 paid a visit to the Omaha, Ne/Council Bluffs, Ia area, all manner of hoops had to be jumped through to get her from Omaha onto a stub at the park in Council Bluffs where she was to be displayed. To get there, a very short section of BNSF trackage has to be used. But 844 wasn't allowed to just call in for a verbal track warrant, as is the usual case when a UP train has to access this short spur... get the orders, pull past the switch and back onto the spur. Instead, one of the BNSF Gibson yard switch engines had to pull/shove 844 into place. After her weekend visit, an equally convoluted tow job back onto the UP main was required. Steve Lee was present throughout all that local switching and was less than impressed with "these damn railroad politics". On subsequent visits from the UP classic steamers, they've kept them in Omaha on all UP property.

Brings back memories of the in-house made banners and posters hanging around our mostly SCO Unix and Linux shop.....

WINDOWS - Waste IN DOs WorkSpace

In an open source house there is no place for Windows and Gates.

Microsoft has beaten Volkswagen's record... Volkswagen only produced 22 million bugs.

etc, etc, etc

Ah yes Corel Wordperfect and WYSIWYG (wizzy-wig). It was the DOS leader, but showed the way for MS Word to take over in Windows which it did. I went straight from Wordstar 6 to Word.

I never understood the need for those fancy word processors.... we all had EDLIN! :)

the memory manager I used was Qemm..


Oh, the good old days. Qemm and Desqview ('windows' for DOS) by Quarterdeck. With it we ran a dialup BBS that could have FOUR users online at a time!

July 18, Elkhart County Indiana. A stretch limo got high-centered on the tracks. Everyone got out, no injuries. Limo driver might be looking for a new job, however.

Train vs. Limo video
