Another Strange Creature Spotted In Gladys!

Made a couple of trips this week, to Chillicothe Oh. with lumber, reloaded coils in Franklin coming back to Suffolk, Va. then took a load of beams to Neville Island, Pa. in a Conestoga and reloaded coils at the dreaded AK Steel in Butler, Pa. to unload in Chesapeake Monday. Took a few pictures along the way of course. I went over to the produce stand this morning and bought some squash and green beans so I can tell Paul it came out of my garden. I planted green, purple, and yellow green beans.

Saw a strange sight this morning-we were standing in the front yard minding our own bidness and an ostrich came trotting down the highway. No, really-it was about 7am and I hadn't drank anything but coffee. Otherdog took off chasing it and it made a right and turned into the driveway next door and fell down. I figured it had killed itself, but it was up and running again in a second. Headed to our back yard. I immediately thought since it didn't kill itself when it fell i'd do it myself when it crashed into my anti-rabbit defense fence and destroyed my garden...was already thinking about how to cook it...but it missed everything and went crashing into the woods. We saw it come out a couple houses down, it ran through their back yard and back to the road, took a left and trotted right back by here towards wherever it came from. Strange! I didn't know anyone around here had ostriches, never seen any near here. Still wondering what the dog would have done with it if he'd caught it.

photos are a big Mack mixer

Any word on the stray ostrich?

I mean - did anyone else besides you see it?

Did it talk to you? Was it pink?

Seriously - It was a pretty nice truck show in Macungie. You would like that show anyway,

it's in a park with a lot of big shade trees. Although, I think there was going to be some

interesting times getting the trucks out of the grass after today's rain!

There was a fantastic little military half-track running around pulling stuff out of the mud.

It ran like a sewing machine, and there was no noise from the tracks and undercarriage.

Nice toy!

Lots of good trucks at the show. And a lot I haven't seen before.

Jimmy says he's going to Winchester, Va. for the show with his W-900 - maybe you could meet up

with him there. I can't go that weekend.

Too early to say, but i'd sure love to go-that's always been one of my favorite shows to go to.

well...Jo saw it. It was about 7am. It was flourescent orange, with lime green wings. Wish i'd taken the camera outside, but who's expecting an ostrich to be passing by?

Life's funny.

I guess you need to be prepared for anything.

Still, with all of the excellent photos you take - it's

hard to believe that you missed something this interesting!

Have a good week.
