Aren't you reading? Jelly stompers at 15 past the hour, otherwise you deal with what you get.



edit on 5/3/2017 by Martin75 because: It keeps using the last pic and not the NEW ones...urg

Oh my dear girl, you have me laughing so hard the dogs paid attention.

I still don't get the whole "Cow" thing.
But that's OK. It is a cultural linguistic twist. If I stay here long enough I may understand.

When cows come home, you milk and feed them. I don't get it??? Silly me.
We used to go "get" the cows. When I could I rode a horse.

I was raised on the Marx Brothers, I love them. For some reason Mom assumed sarcastic humor was perfect nutrition for a child along side British humor. Thank you.


The cow thing still baffles me. Oh, are we in big trouble when Mama Night comes back!!!!
Are cows a euphemism? Cows are nice, well some are. Heifers are terrible, bulls are OK if you leave them alone.

From what I understand "Till the cows come home" is in reference to the time of day when the cows return to the barn for milking. Otherwise it may refer to the cows that have been slaughtered and are never coming home.

Either way it's a phrase to use when one expects something to take a very long time or to never happen anyway.

How in the hell did I wind up at a hen party? I swear I followed Augie's directions perfectly....
dammit.

Hello Shamrock, harbinger of luck, I don't recall having said hello to you.
HELLO
Now what is "A hen party" a euphemism for??? I will refrain from going into detail about the behavior of "hens'.

A hen party we're having? I'll have to step outside with the other blokes as I'm no woman.

Staying with the "barn theme" I must slumber now.

Thanks for the reply Blue, the euphemism boggles me, but also make me smile.
Cows always come home. They do!!! Milking time, they are right on the spot.
I hope life is treating you well?

Good Lord, what the heck happened to the place? I can't leave you kids alone for 5 minutes! Starts picking up booze bottles, grabs a broom and sweeps up donut crumbs. Wipes up the jelly that squirted from the donuts. Shoos away the dancing cat...Think I need a nap now.

Good to see so many of you had such a great time! Sorry I had to miss it all! Rather sleepy, but I'm here now.

Okay, I'll send them another email with your message then. We have thunderstorms to the north of us. It's always a nice thing to listen too before I go to bed.

Well, part one of the last stop for the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus in Charleston, West Virginia is over with. After getting word a few moons ago that the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus was closing its doors after its first two shows in May. A few friends of mine and myself decided that it would be the opportune time to get the last run up the former Virginian Railway's Princeton - Deep Water mainline and the former New York Central's "West Virginia Branch now operated by the Kanawha River Railroad for its final run to Charleston.

On a lush and green sunny day this past Tuesday running about an hour behind its scheduled 9AM departure. With a trio of CSX units in charge, the last circus train is seen pulling down the "Virginia Main" for a crew change with the Kanawha River Railroad as it pulls into Elmore Yard just outside of Mullens.


Heading west for Deep Water along the former Virginian Railway. Cruising through coal country for the last time on the way to Charleston. CSX 3333 leads the last run of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus past an old concrete milepost sign leftover from the Virginian Railway.


Just a few minutes after changing crews at Elmore Yard in Mullens. Northbound, railroad west, circus train KN38 is seen gliding over the small community of Slab Fork as it crosses one of the massive trestles built by the Virginian Railway, the brainchild of Henry Huddleston Rogers and William Nelson Page, during the early 20th Century.


Making its way towards Charleston on its final northward journey over the Virginian Railway. The circus train is seen passing over Loop Creek at Robson on one of the many small bridges on the line between Deep Water and Mullens.


With a fresh crew onboard for the run to Charleston. The last run of the circus train is seen making its way to the north end of Dickinson Yard to set off the passenger coaches for the yard crew to spot over on the shop tracks.


After waiting for the passenger coaches to be spotted by the KN30. A pair of WATCO locomotives are seen as they pull out of one of the yard tracks to begin spotting the passenger coaches over on the shop tracks at Dickinson Yard.


After dropping off the passenger coaches at Dickinson Yard for one last time. Kanawha River Railroad train KN30 cruises into Charleston to spot the equipment flats in what's left of the former Baltimore & Ohio rail yard.


As a trio of CSX locomotives look onward as the circus crew begins to unload the train at Ruffner Avenue. The sun starts to set on the day of the circus train's last run to Charleston.
