One of those bails killed the ELO violinist in a freak accident.
So maybe they've jumped bail and are on the lam.

Hmmm... they were in front of a bank. Note the green TD logos at the left. Maybe they were plotting how to score some getaway money!

I walked past the site this afternoon, and they're gone now. Just a couple handfuls of hay are left on the sidewalk. They're probably in Georgia by now.

One of my projects...for the Mossad. I spent an entire summer in the cockpit. And there were always a couple of guys with automatic weapons to keep me company.

Spelling. Got it.
That’s good.
I thought you were making a joke about a 62 old man being crushed to death by a 600 KG bale of hay ; )

Really! I get to do some pretty cool stuff. I've worked on two rocket programs as well.

I was also held hostage for 24 hours in Peru... so it can be a mixed bag. :oldbiggrin:

The second program was experimental. It was actually testing the concept of rail launch systems [to reduce fuel consumption and weight significantly]. The first launch spun out of control a bit after the launch due to a motor failure. They were planning a second launch when Covid hit.

When this was happening, I was sitting here with a VPN connection to the launch control system in case anything went wrong. No pressure there!!! :bugeye: We had verified everything onsite but I watched the launch from my couch. So cool!!!

We were riding in a remote area near Tamarack Springs, Washington, when we came across a grave with a stone marked "White Woman Grave".

1674620139772.png


The Park Service had constructed a simple barrier around the grave to protect it from observers. And you can see the original stone has been placed in a cement frame for protection. But we had no clues as to the story behind the grave.

We were on ATVs, but we ran into a number of people either walking or on bicycles, who were lost. After we ate our lunch and continued on the trail, we too got lost. And I mean REALLY lost! Cell communications dropped out. The "map" we had purchased from the ATV rental only showed a simple trail to follow, and not the hundreds of other trails intersecting our trail. There was no way to know what was what! We were in low, rolling hills, with areas of trees, that seemingly went on forever. We finally managed to get a cell signal and called to have the ATV company come and get us for a modest additional fee of something like $500. Clearly they did this regularly - hence the useless map.

But later I learned the story of the White Woman Grave. I don't recall their names, but a poor fellow and his young, pregnant wife, were traveling through those same hills around 1875, IIRC. They too got lost and roamed the hills for days. Finally, they encountered a native American who directed them to the settlement they sought. They were so excited that they started to run the horses. But the young woman was thrown from her horse. She and the baby died on the spot. Her husband buried her and marked the grave as that of a white woman so grave robbers would leave it alone. They only robbed from native American graves.
