Random photos from June 2014

With a few thoughts, of course.

I suppose nothing says you had a good night fishing better than leaving your trash behind for the wind and river to carry off.

I don't know if this is serves a purpose or if it's just something that happens to be in the water.

I once knew a pipefitter, now deceased, whose fantasy was for a brewery to be built within commuting distance of his house. That would provide years of good work, he said. I thought about him when I saw this old Ashland Inc. barge, now owned by Marathon Petroleum, of course, at the Robert C. Byrd Locks and Dam. And I also recalled the day Ashland folks put local reporters like me on a corporate jet to fly us down to Jeffersonville, Ind., where Ashland announced it had signed a contract with Jeffboat to build a bunch of double-hulled barges to transport petroleum products.

Off-topic: This month I learned why so many people in the Huntington WV area praise the grape pineapple ice cream at Austin's Home-Made Ice Cream in Ceredo WV.
