Friday Night Steam

 Found this delightful little video from Sweden! 

 I enjoyed watching the people's faces as much as the trains!

From the video description:

Live Steam Trains in Sweden: Borås MiniatyrÅngloksSällskap (filmed by shantos001)

24,221 views Oct 9, 2008 In September some members of the Stormpolder Live Steamers visited one of the nicest 7¼" live steam tracks on the European continent: Borås MiniatyrÅngloksSällskap. We brought two live steam locos with us: the NS (Nederlandse Spoorwegen, Dutch Railways) 4014 (a 3 cylinder engine, the original built in Sweden by NOHAB and based on the H3s type that ran at the Bergslagernas Järnväg) and a narrow gauge O&K named "Klorus" (built in 7 months). During our stay the society operated their clubloco "Bridget", a Rob Roy with separate tender, two very well build BR 70000 class (Britannia and the William Shakespeare). The live steam track is about 1200m long and is situated in a well maintained forrest. As a special they have built a fantastic scenery in scale 1:8 including houses, station buildings and water towers. Please visit for more information about this nice live steam society and wonderful track.


Today's funny :o)






Just stuff in the camera...

They decided NOT to jump over the stone wall by the road because of the cars going by:

Leaves are turning color:

They eat anything:

More robins:



And a caterpillar:

Like I said, just stuff.....

 For the past two days, robins have been visiting Coopville on their way South:

It was a great day to light the fire pit:

Kitty-Kat's fuzzy ears:

Threw ALL of the gang out of the coop AGAIN - it is just too nice to be inside:

While they were out, I cleaned the coop:

The leaves are almost gone on the dogwood tree:

The yard art having a good spin!

A pretty leaf:

Look up tonight!

 Go outside tonight, look up and see Jupiter!

Jupiter will rise in the east while the sun sets in the west.

 It will be above and between the moon and Venus.


 H/T to Terry!


Lets go for a ride!

'Twas a beautiful day - the leaves are starting to fall:




... But not  going too far - gas is still high:

A wee bit of color:

Our destination - get pumpkins and flowers:

Back to Coopville!

 H/T to Glenn!





It rained all morning...

 .... and then  it cleared in the afternoon. I had to lock all of them out of the coop.

They were NOT happy campers:

Some soggy sunflowers:


And some deer:
