Children crossing the Panaro river to get to school near Modena, Italy; 1959.





The bridge was destroyed in WW2 and not rebuilt until ca 1980.

Also, of course two people couldn't use it at the same time going in opposite directions.

Beats walking uphill both ways barefoot in the winter.

Good Morning RFC'rs, et al:

It's a wonderful day in the neighborhood, at 78F and a whole lot of humidity. 70% chance of that humidity condensing around Saharan dust particles, and falling from the sky as precipitation.

I made great strides yesterday in my project of putting a walnut shnoble on a Mosin stock. A bit of shaping, carve out the barrel channel, and finish the stock is all that's left. Lots of sawing yesterday.

Sausages and hash browns are on the stove. The coffee is ready, and gud.

Morning. Ready to walk out and go to Dr. [too early for me ] 70 degrees and super humid. Heat index over 100 today. Time for it to start cooling off.

Thanks Sophia for the history lessons. Been missing them. Learn a lot from your photos.

Wifey's birthday. Told town no activities for me. Means I miss an early Town Board meeting followed by work session. All went into shock. Too bad.

Have a good one.

All this trash talk sounds very familiar. So much for being politically correct and eco-friendly.

I first heard the term "Yellow Journalism" in a history course discussing the period of the Spanish-American war. It's a term that apparently has fallen out of the vernacular but which deserves a comeback, at least as much as over-large eyeglasses do.
True, one can never have too many birth control options . . .
Replaced la hacineda's HVAC filters yesterday so stopped by WalMart to pick up new spares. I had a flashback to the ammo shortage when a member here used the search for HVAC filters as satire on the situation. Well, there I found myself today.

WalMart used to have about 90 linear feet of shelving devoted to HVAC filters and was where I turned to after the guy at Lowes told me the 16"x16" size I needed was non-standard so not in their inventory. Wally had them stacked high and deep so that was where I was getting my fix. Well, not so anymore. That entire aisle is now devoted to floor and window fans and the few feet remaining for HVAC filters was mostly the fancy hypo-allergenic type in sizes I can't use. I had this instant flashback to rimfire ammo scrounging discussions.

Disappointed with Wally I tried across the street at Lowes. Still no joy but I spied with my little eye a big honkin' poster showing all the sizes that could be ordered if one wanted to take that option.... and, lo, there was the 16"x16" listed but the fine print suggested it would be a case of 20 that was delivered. I briefly considered it then decided if I was going to go that route I would throw more money at Amazon.

On a whim I drove to the other side of town and checked Home Depot. I almost missed them since they were at floor level and hidden behind one of those in-your-way, taking-up-space-in-the-aisle displays but there was a stack of the elusive 16"x16" filters. I successfully fought off the urge to buy more than one, reminding myself that was the behaviour of an irrational rimfire ammo hoarder.
Sounds about like my experience with any item I have to go buy.
Ammo cabinet appeared well stocked, by the way. Just a quick glance; I didn't look to see if there was rimfire ammo.
Your Home Depots have ammo!!!???
Gent at the transfer station (aka dump) tells me the county's recycling program comes to a whimpering end 12 September. We've seen it coming... first the towns stopped picking up then they stopped taking then the county followed suit. I heard, without confirmation, that it was costing them $500 to get $300.

Got a YouTube vid I think is hilarious but rules against political commentary forbid me posting it here.

Niece got caught up in the airline SNAFU but appears finally to have touched down safely in Columbia. Now fingers are crossed hoping she makes it out six months hence without incident in between. Bound for Australia after that. Less anxiety on my part, to be sure.

I'm smiling at how a photo of a bunch of old cars could keep you old guys entertained. I think Gerald nailed the Oldsmobile with its distinctive back glass.
Fixed that for you. While I recognized a couple, I moved on quickly. Some day, I may regale you with my first Burger King experience. It might have even been at the one pictured.
Oh, three OC spotted, including a full size 1911 in a cross draw holster.
That should give a Kopykat Killer pause to reflect. . . .

There's good money in woodcarving but you'll have to get Karen to learn the tedious checkering to really make the big bucks lest you be adding the sawdust to your food to survive.

We has a local dingaling roving reporter that embarrasses mewith her dingalinging reporting that isn't put on. This morning she's making cupcakes with the cook 'Yooper Goddess'. Who boy!

ETA- did I read after all that searching you only got one 16x16" filter
Sophia?

Happy Birthday Mrs. Hotdog Frank Eagle Mayor!!

Grocery shopping this a.m. before 1 when the plumber comes once again to fix a drain leak in the sink and replace our new, now 4 yrs old, Delta faucet thats been *fixed* 3 times before. "Delta's the best we sell!" Well this one isn't!!

Really in a dry spell with only .25" every week or 3. Power bill from subterranean watering went up $40 according to my bookie.

... and a 20x30" for the other return. Just one set of spares. Don't want to be stepping over a big stack of them for months at a time.

HVAC runs afternoons from late July to about the beginning of dove season then again overnight from mid-January to late February so we can call that the filter-changing seasons. Don't go through very many.

Yes, at long last, you can now live out your dream of falling asleep while you lazily drift down a river, hit a sharp submerged stick, and awake in total darkness as cool, refreshing water rushes into your tent and a high-quality nylon body bag slowly entombs you and pulls you down to where the rescue divers will recover your waterlogged, fish-eaten corpse.

Wook: My choices are #7.5 shot, which I've been using, or #9 shot. I'm resupplying for the .410.

Which should I choose?

The repair looks good.

I have about the same size one here. A nice green oasis surrounded by a dust bowl.
I put in two hours on the cub yesterday, 10-12 the window between wet doo, and to hot. Not much green but the Plantains are coming up. Seeing them brought back old memories, and I had to stop for a few minutes to see if they where shootable yet. When I was a kid we used to hold the stem between thumb and forefinger then a once over wrap in front of the hold, then push the head off. If you get them when their large before they get to dry and brittle you can launch them a good 10'-12'. The wife says their edible, but I don't think they will make it on my bucket list.


Got to get moving to try to get another 2 in on the cub. the weed eating can wait for cooler weather.
They say some is on the way in 3 or 4 days. I hope they are right for a change.

Only 50 degrees but it's headed for the mid-70s today. Can't complain!

Gonna czech at the PO for any mail, then continue on and do a little shopping.
We don't need much but I'll be in the uptown 'store-zone'... Watering the garden after that.

The katz are napping.

Life is good!

Sitting on the deck in the evenings watching the bats come alive, made me wonder after a day of misc thought processing, if the bats are having as much fun in their pursuit of bugs as they should be?

Either something got hit on the e-way or I've got a body part falling off, the sneeze of rain we got this morning suggests it was something on the e-way, had me wondering that too the last couple days.
