    Probably said this before, but recently returned from the Durango area of Colo. & mapped a straight-line home to Papillion Ne. via. backroads wherever it took me, primarily just to break the monotony of a long drive & see how the rural world is doing. Good roads mostly at 65 mph stopping on occasion to snap-shot roadside relics, several areas one can still see the stone fence posts the ranchers utilized where trees & lumber were at a premium..

  13. I grew up in Cumberland MD. Think I was born in Frostburg. I'm sure I was on that rd. I was 10 when we moved west.

    This had a pinto 4 banger drove nice all over and it looked A+
    One of those situations where a guy ask you to trade and you doubt what he has but I listened.
    A fellow in Tulsa traded me a beautiful black 40 Cdan with a dressed flattie straight up so I could not resist.
    But this model A reminds of the nice A bone in this story.

    There is a really interesting multi arch cement bridge on the north side of Fort Morgan CO. going out to the baseball fields. It's now only a pedestrian bridge and I believe on the CO historical registry. I go by it on the way to my sons.

    My wife's car on the Devils Elbow Bridge at Devils Elbow, Missouri also on Route 66. My mom and dads ashes were placed in the water of the Big Piney River that flows underneath this bridge. AC9F15CF-273D-44B1-AE8B-518A1AF58BE4_1_105_c-resized.jpeg
