BMT Forum Bot Posted June 20, 2009 Share Posted June 20, 2009 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 mixera big Mack truckcar hauler in Crewe, Va....looks like a nocluejoemobile...old Mack on rt. 422 in Pa.a rhinocerous on rt. 422self explanatoryOtherdog taking a break-he's got to rest in case he has to fend off an ostrich attackvegetables I picked...bought, I mean...this morning Attached thumbnail(s) // // // // // // // // //View the full blog entry Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
