Thursday's assingment

I have again gotten into something at work and outside ..This is Doug Greene's Pryus and his bumper stickers..For Thursday pick one of the stickers and do a post on it..There is the one about you know who , and the one about the farmer .The small black and white which I have cropped and expanded would also be good

The last picture is Doug Greene . lives in Cobelskill. works in Fonda

What it cost then

Letter describing the construction of the capitals for the columns for the courthouse

" I will make and cut your capitals. It is best to have them put together by a person that is used to it,as (if they are made as they should be) they are a very particular job....I will do them and find stuff for $1oo and they shall be properly executed according to the Ionic order"

The Lady by the Ocean don't know who, as well as the pink girl with the funny hands> She is done on a piece of wood

Point being ... cool frames from Roger T Lyford

Amsterdam Computer

My Hotmail account was perilous to travel in , but Greg from Amsterdam Compter told me to come down to the shop and get the important files out of his computer and use his printer...

Here is Greg the Great and his tool board.. Very important message from Greg ...If a Pop UP Add Appears ,,you used to move it down to the Blue Ribbon and ignore it...The Hackers have now made it so if the Add is moved by one x,y coordinate the virus springs loose..You are supposed instead SHUT DOWN THE COMPUTER
Greg also said DO NOT be lured into any unsolicited SECURITY UPGRADES ie MICROSOFT has determined that YOUR SYSTEMS NEEDS this upgrade to be protected

Fonda Fair

Looks like a mule and a little girl who likes her cow

I really wanted to see an Ox .Richard's girlfriend ,Sophie( she is in a lot of the previous pictures) raised 6 pair of Oxen between the ages 7 and 18 for 4H..An Ox is a steer which has been trained ..They can keep their horns because they are so managable,also to keep the yoke from slipping off

A funny story Sophie told me was ,she was age 7 and she was walking behind the pair holding the reins ..The pair got spooked and started running back to the barn..Her father told her to ,never ,never let go if they started running otherwise they would do it forever..She got dragged through the garden and the cornfield but didn't let go ..They never ran again
