Wordless Wednesday - July 16, 2008

Ouachita River Bridge(click on image for larger view)

I decided to return to Wordless Wednesday, at least for this week, after a long break. It's taken a while to get back to normalcy around here as 'life seems to keep happening while I'm busy making other plans'. (John Lennon)

This photo is of the railroad bridge seen in the background of the picture I posted for Wordless Wednesday a couple of months ago of a local restaurant here in Monroe. The restaurant, Warehouse No 1, sits on the Ouachita River and you can see all of the local traffic bridges, as well as this railroad bridge from the deck overlooking the river. I took both photos the same day with my old Olympus film camera sometime during the 80s.

Happy Wordless Wednesday to all!

What a magnificent shot. I'd love it even if my blog topic wasn't model railroad trains!

My husband and I both loved this.

I have missed you. I kept on stopping by and saw no entries.
So I am glad you stopped by Penny Lane today because I was thinking of you recently and told myself to visit your blog. So thanks for the comment.

I caught up with all your enteries.
I hope John is all adusted in his new environment.
Your grand-daughter is adorable. I wish her well and good luck in school!
I get those allergy headaches too. This year seems to be worse than I can ever remember, but then again, my memory is beginning to fail me, I could not remember your URL, so thanks again for posting.

WOW! Thanks for all the wonderful comments everybody. You've made my day!

Randall, this one does seem to fit perfectly with your blog.

Jean, thank you for the really kind comments you've left here. I had a spell there where I had to get a little balance back in my life and found it hard to get back to regular blogging. I think I'm good to go again now though!

Sandy, I don't believe you can walk along this particular bridge but one of the nearby traffic bridges has a pedestrian walkway on it. I'm not sure I could walk it though as I have both a height and a bridge phobia. While the bridges here aren't necessarily that high, it would still be enough to give me hiney tingles as PW would say.
