This is the Government Bridge. It lets us onto Arsenal Island in Rock Island Illinois. Actually the Arsenal is to the left in this pic. Home of Weapons manufacturing... My Bio-Dad was top paid civilian government employee on that island! He was shop foreman of the Howitzer division...
The huge gear under the opening span was made by My friend who I worked with at Davenport Machine, years ago. He got to be present when they installed it! It worked perfectly!!




EDIT: Yes the river is very wide in most places!!!

It was one of my favorites when I was a kid. The time does pass. Too bad you can't get it back.

Here you go Q. I took this picture when we were out on a riverboat in Memphis. On the mighty Mississippi going under the twin bridges that cross over to Arkansas, at sunset

Lol, I am posting this up for all the lady members of the shed! I'm guessing you may well be as tickled as I was. At least I hope so.
For you fellas that decide to watch it anyway, I say, pay close attention to the message as some guys usually get confused by this about this time in life!

I thought this was very cool when I stumbled across it today and just had to share it for all our dragon friends. Wouldn't you just love to have this? Wish I could give one to all the shed dragons, but alas, this is the best I can do.

This dragon head is actually made up of Aquamarine/Peridot/Amethyst and rose quartz. Sweet eh?

I have rafted under it and rode over it. LOL On bridge day you can legally bungee jump or base jump.


The New River Gorge Bridge is a steel arch bridge 3,030 feet (924 m) long over the New River Gorge near Fayetteville, West Virginia, in the Appalachian Mountains of the eastern United States. With an arch 1,700 feet (518 m) long, the New River Gorge Bridge was for many years the world's longest single-span arch bridge;[4][5] it is now the third longest

Aww thank you CC for using them, they need a loving home.

I don't handle the heat very well either, unless I am by water. And I too should stop smoking.
I see from Syx's post that if I took a boat down the Mississippi we could visit.
What happened to the pretty dress? I am so behind please pardon me.

OneThat was awesome. Older Ladies. Thank you so much.
I have never had a problem getting older, except for a lower metabolism, but others seem to on my behalf.
"Haven't you ever colored your hair?"
"Don't you just hate this or that?"
What they would resent most would be my reply "Why would I hate it, I can't very well change it"
The stone dragon Is that a whole piece or have they glued it together?
It is wonderful. I have a passion for stones/geology. More so natural rock formations these days. I love sitting on bed rock.

Martin The bridge pics are wonderful. Have you walked there? How are you?

Now this is a bridge!!!!! Well they say series of but it is still damned amazing to watch it being constructed!! might have some of my own pics of it somewhere.




The Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge is an ongoing construction project which consists of a series of bridges and tunnels crossing the Lingdingyang channel that will connect Hong Kong, Macau and Zhuhai, three major cities on the Pearl River Delta in China. The proposed 50 km link is expected to cost US$10.6 billion (HK$83 billion).[1] With its length, it would become one of the landmarks within the area. The longest bridge section will be 29.6 kilometres long and will include three cable-stayed spans between 280 metres and 460 metres.[2][3] Construction formally began on 15 December 2009.[4] The bridge was due for completion in late 2016 but has been delayed to the end of 2017.[5]
