Friday Nigt Steam

 Let's take a ride on a Ghost Train!!!


Tweetsie Railroad: Ghost Train 9-23-2022


 Every Fall, Tweetsie Railroad opens at night for their annual Ghost Train event. The Halloween event features live entertainment, a haunted house, freaky forest, mind confusing gadgets, their normal amusement rides at the country fair, and the reason we came: the Ghost Train. The staff not only decorates the entire park, but also locomotive #190 for the event. The park never fails to impress every year. *The only difference the train has this year compared to last year is that the skull itself was repainted. So, sit back, and enjoy the views of the 13 (190) pulling guests to and from their possible final destination.


Today's funny :o)

 H/T to Gary!

 Happy Halloween!



Today's funny :o)




Houston, we have a problem.....

..... in Coopville!


 Back in July I bought Dolly and Reba

to keep Chipper and Benji company and to get fresh eggs since Chipper is old and doesn't lay anymore.

Well, it's not working out  that way....

Only got a couple of eggs from the new ones:

and then they BOTH got broody and stopped laying for the past few months.

I now have to BUY eggs!!!!!!!!

And Benji.......


Benji is NOT performing his duties at all.

 My rooster has turned gay -

He thinks he is a hen!

Should I give them away and start all over again in the Spring?

Feed, hay and shavings are expensive now.

What do you think I should do?????

Today's funnies :o)

 H/T to Gary for these!




Quiet in Coopville....

,,,,, except for noisy Benji:

 Still some peppermint growing:

 A pretty sunset:


 Kitty-Kat taking Another nap:



 The neighbors next door are starting to decorate their back yard. 

This creature is at least 15 feet tall!





 Not too much left of the red leaves:



 Benji and Chipper eating some canned corn. Reba and dolly didn't want to come 

out of the nest boxes, so they got their treat inside the coop!

The World’s Largest Underground Business Complex.®

What is SubTropolis? SubTropolis was created through the mining of a 270-million-year-old limestone deposit. In the mining process, limestone is removed by the room and pillar method, leaving 25-foot square pillars that are on 65-foot centers and 40 feet apart.

The pillars’ even spacing, concrete flooring and 16-foot high, smooth ceilings make build-to-suit facilities time and cost efficient for tenants.
