That's pretty much what the river stream creek brook has looked like below my drawbridge during our heavy rains down here. (It had been dry most of the year for the last 7 years.) Still running. A little. I love to watch running water.

Kind of like my cats.


The fact that you sincerely and wholeheartedly believe that the “Law of Gravity” is unconstitutional and a violation of your sovereign rights, does not absolve you of adherence to it.

Except my river stream creek brook doesn't make me sneeze.

Have you a portcullis as well?

Of course. And turrets.

But no damsels in distress in the high tower.

I hear Trump has some he's not using. 8-)

The modern, well-appointed stronghold will always include a drawbridge, portcullis and turrets. However, since the unionization of damsels in distress (DID United), many stronghold owners have abandoned that tradition and it is considered acceptable to merely play, on a continuous loop, the screams of Nell Fenwick issuing from one's highest tower, 24/7.

Thanks so much for continuing to post updates, RTH10260. Real life + 45s daily crap diverted me from this a month or so ago so I'm grateful this was here to catch me up on what was going on. I loved the old PR/documentary on building Oroville (the hopper cars that empty without having to be decoupled :shock: :-D were awesome) & an especial thank you for finding the pilot who has been reporting on this. His videos are great!

ETA - I seem to have accidentally unthreadjacked the threadjack! :thumbs:
