Up, up and away....






Have YOU ever taken a ride in one????





Today's funny :o)



Ball Point Pens !!
 
When NASA started sending astronauts into space, they quickly discovered that ball-point pens would not work in zero gravity.

To combat this problem, Congress approved a program and NASA scientists spent a decade and over $165 million developing a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside down, on almost any surface and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to over 300 C.


The Russians used a pencil...



 :o)





Unbelievably warm yesterday...


This was in the sun although it didn't last long, it WAS heavenly! Felt so good not to have a heavy coat on! Hubby and I  even sat on the deck for a while. Still need boots because of all the mud. The run still has a lot of snow in it but I hurt my hand and can't shovel it out. It will just have to melt by itself. The pen is all cleared and that is more important.



The snow is packing down quickly and even the horses are roaming about:


Charlie has spring fever and keeps checking out the nest boxes for the girls.




He's in for a big surprise though, it's going to go down in the low teens tonight!

Poor Charlie!

                                                                            :o)




Still have plenty of....





.... icicles around!




BUT, The temperature did almost get up to 40 yesterday! Yay!


Still have lots and lots of snow, though.


The gang is thrilled to get out:


Hubby cleaning ice out of the gutters:


I filled up their treat ball  - they weren't to enthusiastic about it...



It was soooo good to feel the warmth of the sun - we haven't seen much of it lately!

Well, maybe she'll love me 
How am I to know

Friday Night Steam

Don't even have to think about where we are a-heading tonight!





~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



blished on Aug 10, 2015
On Sunday the 9th of August 2015, the RPSI operated a steam trip from Dublin - Dundalk, Dundalk - Skerries, Skerries - Drogheda and back to Dublin. The trip was called ''The Great Northern Getaway''. But this wasn't just any ordinary steam trip, it was the first time in five years that RPSI's 'WT' class 2-6-4 locomotive No. 4 hauled a tour in the Republic or Ireland. It was also my first time getting proper shots of the engine.

So to start the trip off we head up to Prospect Road the day before the tour where we see IE 071 class locomotive number 083 working the Inchicore - Connolly Craven Transfer. The next Morning we head to Howth Junction where we see No. 4 pelting through with the Connolly - Dundalk leg. After that it was full whack on the motorway up to Irishtown, Co. Meath where we see No. 4 passing with the first leg of the trip. Once through Irishtown we slowly get ahead of the tour and set up in Glebe, Co. Louth. Two Enterprise trains pass through before No. 4 passes. Once through Glebe we travel up the line to Dundalk Station where we see No. 4 running around her train. After that we set up at Dromin Junction where we see No. 4 passing with the Dundalk - Skerries leg. After that it was straight to Laytown Viaduct where we see No. 4 passing. Once past Laytown we head to Ardgillan where we see No. 4 passing with the Skerries - Drogheda leg. After a long break and something to eat we head to Gormanston, Co. Meath where we see No. 4 passing with the Drogheda - Connolly leg. Once through Gormanston we head straight to Fairview Dart Depot and see it passing. After that we head to Claude Road where we see IE 071 class locomotive number 083 passing with the Connolly to Inchicore Craven Transfer.

Footage was taken on Saturday the 8th and Sunday the 9th of August 2015.

Lets go for a ride!

Had to go to the pharmacy in town yesterday.....


Our driveway:








The wind was making the snow swirl!


Way off in the distance you can see the ski trails on the top:


The parking lot at Acme:




Going back home through town:






Those steps are going have to be cleaned before Sunday!



 Big icicles on that green house:

There IS a cross walk under all that snow!







Sunrise Mountain:




Road cleaning!


Love the way this tree was trimmed:


And home to Coopville:


Only Charlie, Betty and Maude ventured out. Wilma remembered her last adventure in the
 snow and stayed in the pen:


I ain't even gonna say it......

Boids .... lots of boids!

(Sorry I haven't been on much - Hubby is really feeling under the weather. The storm was rough on us this time around).

All the feathered ones know where to find food!















It's been cold and windy - don't want to go outside for long:


Total snow was about 18 inches - with higher drifts!






Couldn't keep all the snow out of the pen, either.



The gang spend a lot of time inside the coop and even some little wrens kept them company!







Promise to answer all  your comments tonight!

:o)
