Got to keep the loonies on the path.

I survived April fools day and not having a car for a week.

Yeah, one of the axles decided to loose all the
roller bearings and start vibrating to beat the band.















It's dark, and greasy, but you can see the outer
race and the lack of roller bearings.

I went through/broke exactly 3 1/2" socket drivers
with handles (ratchets for the mechanical among the readers)
doing the job.

So when I don't have a car or am borrowing Harriet's
I tend to walk more. While I was out and about I met this fellow
hanging out on the HQ bldg of SUNY















To give you an idea of the scale of that building
here is a pic that was taken off the web.

Shot from about 350 yards away on the sidewalk,
this building is one of the few publicly
owned castles in the U.S.















There are two more wings to the right and left.

A view of it from the bridge.















Then we can see the post card

It's not changed
much.




In fact, right across the street is the blacksmith's shop

















It's not everyday you see what you are missing
by looking up.

Or by walking right up to her.

Right across the street from
Red Lion Inn
