'SL GINGA' is one of the oldest train in Japan. Railroad fan loves Steam Locomotive train which runs at some local areas. This train runs from Kamaishi to Hanamaki in Iwate prefecture in the north side of Japan. Unfortunately, 'SL GINGA' is abandoned in 2023 because it's too old to keep old car.



Today;s funny :o)

 H/T to Donna!










 ..... nada. Nothing. Nil.

It's chilly and damp.  No sun for a few days. Had a thunderstorm overnight, too. The gang only comes out the coop to eat- they don't even want to pick at the wet grass. Had a rubber egg again - no good ones for a few days.

Only the horse are enjoying this miserable weather!

Going to take next Monday and Wednesday off. Maybe I can get some good pics for next Friday to show 'ya!

Friday Night Steam

How 'bout a steam powered well driller for tonight?





The Keystone Driller Company was founded on February 2, 1882 by brothers Robert M. and John G. Downie and James D. McAnlis in Fallston, Pennsylvania. It was a successor to R. M. Downie & Bro., which had been established by the Downie brothers in Allegheny City, Pennsylvania in 1879. Its industry was drilling machinery and its headquarters were in Fallston, Pennsylvania (1882-1887) and Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania (1887-1959).

The company filed for bankruptcy in 1937 and was reorganized in 1940. In 1952, the firm acquired and merged with the Star Drilling Machine Company. The plant was shut down in 1959 after being sold to the Koehring Company. Its operations were consolidated with the Buffalo-Springfield Roller Company, a subsidiary of Koehring, in Springfield, Ohio.









Today's funny :o)









Yesterday was ....

 .... a cloudy. drizzly, damp day.

 No much going on, as usual. Made corned beef and cabbage:



 Got two more eggs!

 Kitty-Kat slept all day - he had the right idea!

 It's supposed to go up 70 degrees today - we'll see!

Have a wonderful and blessed...

                                                                 ..... St. Patrick's Day!


Performer - Deanna Durbin Lyrics - Frederick Weatherly The famous ballad "Danny Boy", ironically, was written by a man who never set foot in Ireland. Weatherly, an English barrister who was also a prolific poet, had originally set "Danny Boy" to music he had composed. The song was not successful. When he heard the "Londonderry Air", he realized that "Danny Boy" would fit nicely to that tune. Over 100 songs have been set to "Londonderry Air", but "Danny Boy" is the most famous. Band and orchestral musicians will also recognize the tune as Grainger's "Irish Tune from County Derry".

Oh, Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side.
The summer's gone, and all the roses falling,
It's you, it's you must go and I must bide.

But come ye back when summer's in the meadow,
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow,
It's I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow,
Oh, Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so!

But when ye come, and all the flowers are dying,
If I am dead, as dead I well may be,
You'll come and find the place where I am lying,
And kneel and say an Ave there for me.
And I shall hear, though soft you tread above me,
And all my grave will warmer, sweeter be,
For you will bend and tell me that you love me,
And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me!
