First no mint on the pillow for mikielikesigns2, now no friendly guy to pump your gas and clean your windshield. Whats up with that anyway? I don't get it.

    Did the customer bell still ring when you ran over the hose?

    "you say your car stopped running after you filled up here? Well it must be your car."

    I love packs photo's also junkman . Hoping someday he comes back to CW we miss him !
    I do know junkman pack did not go in buildings ,snakes,and other big bugs , and that he did not cross onto someone's property . I had asked him about that a few years ago .

    I love taking pictures too and only rarely go onto someone's property.'s a photo by photo decision. I don't take anything because pictures - like these - are good enough to take away. On the other hand - a confession to all my CW friends: my best dreams are me exploring old buildings. It's really a great dream if there's a treasure there for me too. As a kid in the Midwest I would ride my bike around the county and explore every single abandoned farm along the way. My dad told me about the propped up shotgun so I would always crawl thru the broken windows - yeah that was stupid. I had a GREAT childhood.
