IF THE SHOE FITS……..

The light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection. The tailgating woman was furious and honked her horn, screaming in frustration, as she missed her chance to get through the intersection, dropping her cell phone and makeup.

.

As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up.

.

He took her to the police station where she was searched, fingerprinted, photographed, and placed in a holding cell.

.

After a couple of hours, a policeman approached the cell and opened the door.    She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects.

.

He said, “I’m very sorry for this mistake. You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping off the guy in front of you and cussing a blue streak at him. I noticed your ‘What Would Jesus Do’ bumper sticker, the ‘Choose Life’ license plate holder, the ‘Follow Me to Sunday-School’ bumper sticker, and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk, so naturally ..

.

I assumed you had stolen the car.”

Here is the reason that you should never toss away your values for political reasons.  The Democrat Progressives never are satisfied.  The NRA is one group that understands God given rights are forever.  Give an inch and they take a kilometer.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Apollo 12 and Surveyor 3 Stereo View

Explanation: Put on your red/blue glasses and gaze across the western Ocean of Storms on the surface of the Moon. The 3D view features Apollo 12 astronaut Pete Conrad visiting the Surveyor 3 spacecraft 50 years ago in November of 1969. Surveyor 3 had landed at the site on the inside slope of a small crater about 2 1/2 years earlier in April of 1967. Visible on the horizon beyond the far crater wall, Apollo 12’s Lunar Module Intrepid touched down less than 200 meters (650 feet) away, easy moonwalking distance from the robotic Surveyor spacecraft. The stereo image was carefully created from two separate pictures (AS12-48-7133, AS12-48-7134) taken on the lunar surface. They depict the scene from only slightly different viewpoints, approximating the separation between human eyes.

Watson Mill Covered Bridge

WGN 10-97-01 Watson Mill or Carlton Built in 1885 in Madison Co. spanning South Fork Broad River, Three spans, 228 ft. long, Town Lattice trusses

Parrish Mill or Watson Mill Bridge over Fifteenmile Creek was built around 1885 by Washington W. King, the son of Horace King, for just over $3,000.00. The bridge was named after Gabriel Watson’s mill nearby. The dam and raceway wall below the bridge were constructed circa 1905, as part of a hydro-Electric Plant. It is the longest covered bridge remaining in Georgia. Most of the lattice work on the inside of the bridge is original. At the bottom of these massive timbers numbers can still be seen which were used to show the construction crew where each piece was to go when constructing the bridge. The bridge was renovated in 1970 when the park service took over its care. The roof and weather boarding were replaced during the renovation. The structure was restored in 1997 at a cost of $165,880.00. It rests on mortared natural stone abutments. Later repairs made with cut stones, and four piers, the south-southwest center pier of concrete construction and the other three piers are made from natural stone mortared together. The bridge is still open to motor traffic. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on September 5, 1991. In season, there is an admission fee.
