Covered Bridge of the Day

This is the Humpback Covered Bridge spanning Dunlap Creek west of Covington in Alleghany County, Virginia. It was built in 1857 for the James River Kanawha Turnpike Corp. It was in service until 1929. In 1954 the area was turned into a park and the bridge was resided and painted. It is about 100 feet long and has a 4′-1″ hump. It utilizes multiple kingpost trusses. It is one of six historic covered bridges left in Virginia.

Three Score and Eight Years ago….I Arrived!

I thank all my relatives, friends, acquaintances, Lois Lion’s Ghost Writer and my Pen Pal from the Boondocks, who have sent me birthday greetings today. You will be proud to know that I have designed a plan that is almost as good as the Fountain of Youth. You Bet…Unlike Congress…I make things happen.

Starting this year, instead of adding a year, I am using a new method of counting my birthdays. I call it my Reverse Dog Year Plan..or RDYP…..that sounds  politically correct, doesn’t it? It is simple to use, instead of adding a year, each birthday….I will subtract 7 years. So, instead of turning 68 today, I am 61. Hold on…. it gets better. That means, in 2025, I will be 18 again…I will be a Senior at Pike County High School.. Sounds like a plan, huh?

Just in case that fails, my back-up plan is: When I select which Old Folks Home to join, I will paint my wheel chair with Groovy Hippie Colors and ride around smoking pot and yelling…”Make Love not War.” Will you come and visit me at the home? Let me know a few days ahead of time because I may need to steal extra drugs from the Old Folks Home Medicinal Supply so we can “Party like it’s 1999″….. “again.”

I will see you there….just Roll On In….I will be easy to identify, trust me on that!!

I was dreamin’ when I wrote this, forgive me if it goes astray
But when I woke up this mornin’, could’ve sworn it was judgment day
The sky was all purple, there were people runnin’ everywhere
Tryin’ to run from the destruction, you know I didn’t even care
Say say two thousand zero zero party over, oops, out of time
So tonight I’m gonna party like it’s nineteen ninety-nine
I was dreamin’ when I wrote this, so sue me if I go too fast
But life is just a party and parties weren’t meant to last
War is all around us, my mind says prepare to fight
So if I gotta die I’m gonna listen to my body tonight
Yeah hey, they say two thousand zero zero party over, oops, out of time
So tonight I’m gonna party like it’s nineteen ninety-nine
Yeah, yeah, hey
People, let me tell you somethin’
If you didn’t come to party, don’t bother knockin’ on my door, oww
I got a lion in my pocket and baby he’s ready to roar, yeah hey
Everybody’s got a bomb, we could all die any day, oh
But before I let that happen, I’ll dance my life away, oh ho
They say two thousand zero zero party over, oops, out of time
So tonight I’m gonna party like it’s nineteen ninety-nine
Say it one more time
Two thousand zero zero party over, oops, out of time
So tonight I’m gonna party like it’s nineteen ninety-nine
Alright, nineteen ninety-nine
You say it, nineteen ninety-nine
Mmm nineteen ninety-nine
Don’t stop it, don’t stop it, say it one more time
Two thousand zero zero party over, oops out of time
So tonight I’m gonna party like it’s nineteen ninety-nine
Yeah, nineteen ninety-nine
Don’t you wanna go?
Don’t you wanna go?

Time for some Offense

HALFTIME IS OVER AND IT’S TIME TO PLAY OFFENSE!

Trump tweets,” Why should I be defending a fraudulent Russian Witch Hunt. It’s about time the perpetrators of this fraud on me and the American People start defending their dishonest and treasonous acts.”

It’s time to go on offense Mr. President and we are ready!

It’s time to unmask the Democrats and the Deep State Swamp dwellers and reveal how they have been running over our Constitution and our rights. Spineless Swampy Republicans are neck deep in the muck and the whole congress needs to be flushed out.

Return the power to the American people, the hard working American citizens. Power does not belong to the Deep State, the Big Pharma lobbyists and the elites who claim they have the “moral authority” to tell us how to live, what to drive and what to eat.

The Democrats may try a “hail Mary”, but the game is already won and they don’t know it!

Are you ready for some big scores?

Lock Them ALL Up!

Astronomy Picture of the Day

A Scorpius Sky Spectacular
Image Credit & Copyright: Stéphane Guisard, TWAN

Explanation: If Scorpius looked this good to the unaided eye, humans might remember it better. Scorpius more typically appears as a few bright stars in a well-known but rarely pointed out zodiacal constellation. To get a spectacular image like this, though, one needs a good camera, color filters, and a digital image processor. To bring out detail, the featured image not only involved long duration exposures taken in several colors, but one exposure in a very specific red color emitted by hydrogen. The resulting image shows many breathtaking features. Vertically across the image left is part of the plane of our Milky Way Galaxy. Visible there are vast clouds of bright stars and long filaments of dark dust. Jutting out diagonally from the Milky Way in the image center are dark dust bands known as the Dark River. This river connects to several bright stars on the right that are part of Scorpius’ head and claws, and include the bright star Antares. Above and right of Antares is an even brighter planet: Jupiter. Numerous red emission nebulas and blue reflection nebulas are visible throughout the image. Scorpius appears prominently in southern skies after sunset during the middle of the year.
