    This reminds me of one time when one of my daughters and I were driving through a small Ozarks town on Highway 13. As we approached the 4-way stop in the middle of town, I could see something on the 4 X 4 pole the stop sign was attached to (It was in the middle of the junction of 13 and 54). Then, as we drew closer, the stench hit us, and we rolled the windows up as fast as we could. Somebody had stuck the head of what had to have been at least a 30-lb channel cat on the stop sign timber, right over the sign. It was covered with flies and was so nasty and foul, that we both about lost our lunches right there.

    Ok, that's my catfish story. Next???



    Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm a busy man. I have a railroad to run.

      I believe "Someone" once said, "That's what friends are for."

        I recall while working on the PRR(PC by this time) a reefer of meat got lost..As I understand the story the car got routed back to the west coast as a empty.I can only imagine what happen when some poor hapless worker open those doors!

          Ewwww!

          My only bad experience like that was when I was in Honduras. One of our unit's refrigeration tractor-trailers broke down in 150 degree heat. They didn't notice it until the following morning, when they served morning chow.

          Needless to say our entire unit had to visit the infirmary for meds to stop from "losing our lunch" and control of our bodily functions. NEVER want to be in that situation ever again.

          Are you guys sure it is okay to post such off-topic posts? Just feels a little weird to me that we aren't talking trains here.

          Later.

            So hey, Deb!

            I don't suppose the L&N ever served catfish on any of its diners, did they? (Enquiring minds want to know!!)

                You can file this under the same smell every year. Every summer during our annual trek down Route 13 on the Delmarva Peninsula to Virginia Beach, we pass several Perdue Chicken processing plants. When the wind and humidity is just right or wrong depending on how you smell it, the smell is so bad that no amount of air-conditioning or rolling up the windows as tight as they can go can stop it. After passing the plants I don’t want to look at a chicken patty or nugget for days.

                Also for added fun some times we get stuck behind a truck carrying live chickens. It is so much fun to spend the first night in Virginia Beach washing feathers and chicken poop off the cars.

                  Tom,

                  I get the opposite of that smell going by the Cargill plant that the UP switches from time to time near where I live. Each time I go by it, it smells like MickeyDs, but maybe it is a different type of processing. I have seen them bring in live chickens and turkeys to the plant though. Hmmmm.

                  I bet you would rather smell this one than the one your are speaking of. LOL!


                  Debbie,

                  You can call me Wolv, Maam. The 33 is just my age. LOL. Thanks for clarifying my off-topic post. I have a STRONG tendency to do just that...post off-topic.

                  Later guys/gals.

                        Debbie,

                        No problem. Ma....uhh nevermind. LOL!

                        Actually, I am not sure if it is my gentleman-like manner or too many times of being in front of a Female officer in the military! LOL!!!


                        Deablo,

                        Heck I dunno. Ask to have it changed? Or just live with the old number. Oh well.

                        I got your other post, Deablo and your email.

                        Later.
