I wish I was an artist

And could store drawings online

Guess james likes cleanup.

I think if you can post in the forum you should have the skills to add into the photo area.

There are times when it is nice to see random images in the forum. I do it myself.

So I let it annoy me But this is not cool.

A former railroad bridge now a pedestrian bike trail way.

They did a really gross pier replacement. The rollers from the swing are now hanging over nothing. The bridge looks great on the deck, but it looks a bit stupid in elevation view.
