Some of my blogging friends have been posting pictures of bridges/foot bridges the past couple of weeks. We had foot bridges at home that crossed the railroad cut.
If you will click on these pictures they will become bigger.
The foot bridge you see in the last picture was just one block from my home. I remember one sunny hot Sunday afternoon Jim and I were sitting on the back porch listening to the police scanner. Sirens started going off and the ambulance and fire trucks were called to the area of this bridge. Someone had jumped off the bridge trying to commit suicide. Quite a bit of excitement for our little town of just over 4,000. Fortunately the young man wasn’t too seriously hurt.
It is to be mid to upper 90s today and all of this week. We got .47 inches of rain yesterday which puts us at about 1 &1/2 inches total for the month of June and July combined.
I put a roast on with carrots, potatoes and onions when I first got up this morning, hoping to beat the heat of the day.
I hope you all have a peaceful day. Stay safe and be happy!!
