    I have been out of pocket for a while.
    Quick story. There is this old house down the street about 3/4 of a mile from here. For years I have seen what looked like some old cars and things hidden in the brush behind the buildings. Several weeks ago I went over a fence and snapped some quick photographs(thankfully I did not get shot, you do NOT jump people's fences around here without permission). To my suprise I found some very interesting things, and this only part of what I found, will post more soon.
    enjoy

      Thankyou very much stonesfan1 & EJW-54.
      Thank you also BELLIN68 for the kind words. I have a trade show I do once a month. The show itself is three 10-12 hour days, plus all the prep. Keeps me busy for a while.

      packrat-place, is there anyone alive in your town besides you? Whats the vacancy rate? Great photos.

      You are a man after my own heart. Some may call that tired iron but I call it golden treasure. I love the home town pic's, brings back old memories.

      rocker-sd, Thank you for the great comment, my wife and I really got a chuckle from it! Yes, there are other human beings here, but, this town has seen better days. The block going down my street has one occupied house and four vacant, besides mine. This is just the way I like it! We actually have a lot of things, two gas stations, two bars, a stoplight, two convenience stores, some storage units, no police, several churches, vacant houses, old cars, a school, and the list goes on and on.
      Again, I really enjoyed your comment, made my Saturday night!
      Thank you very much ozmarty, rocker-sd & Hedgewalker.

      I love your pics. I just sold my old tractor. It looked almost as good as that one. I wish I had taken a photo of it before cause I miss it already. The guy wanted it bad so I gave it to him cheap because he's gonna get it runnin' and use it. We don't even have a stoplight. Nothin much to stop for unless you're just visitin'. I think your town is seein' it's best days now.
