When trucking was tough. cedar poles. some as long as 80-90 foot long.
It was common back then to remove the driver's door. no airbrakes ,just pump the pedal, and come off the hill in low gear. IE: engine braking
.
This photo taken about 40/50 ft. from our house, taken during the mid 40s.

From 2013:

Nothing remarkable about the photograph, but it was a day my son accompanied me out to go shoot pictures. The camera was really just an accessory; we had a great time walking in the woods and talking. He was my sherpa for the day, and it was one of the best times I've ever had shooting pictures.

So that was four and a half years ago now. He's boarding this year. I miss him. Time goes by way too quickly.

Poznan, PL, spring 2010
St John Nepomuc statue in the old marker (Starym Rinkum)
I had a project in this town at the time, and visited every couple of weeks
The town is great, and the people are amazing! I felt at home every time

13Q_02.jpg
Back when people still listened to albums and AM and FM radio, stations used to release their lists of top records.

Here's one from 1977 - the year that I graduated from high school.
  • Top album for this week: "Hotel California," by the Eagles
  • Top single: "When I Need You," by Leo Sayer
  • Featured lyrics: "Don't Give Up on Us," by David Soul - star of the hit TV show, "Starsky and Hutch".
The radio station was 13Q in Pittsburgh, which was 1310 (I think) on the AM dial, as they used to say.
