Warning ahead

We went for a little drive yesterday...actually wanted to go down this road that we have passed numerous times in over the years and always wondered what was down it. Well, there wasn't anything real special about the road, but at last we know. And that road led us down other roads...and one we started down warned of a height restriction ahead. We wondered what in the world was ahead...and came down around a little bend and here was what awaited us. I will have another view on Time Stand Still...

This is interesting to me by itself...but I went to Mike and D's Life in the Hoosier State and Beyond post of something I have passed at least a hundred times, and probably more. Another railroad trestle. It is one I have always meant to take a photo of, but just never been there at the right time with my camera.
But what got me was the date of it...it is the same date as this one. Enlarge the picture and look at how the numbers are made and then go look at her post. It makes me wonder if they were made by the same people. We even came to another trestle/bridge or what ever you want to call it similar to the one above, with the same date, but I did not take a photo of it.

*********
It is taking some time to get used to not seeing Lorelei two or three times a week. She is liking the new house--seems to have settled in really nice. One day when Sarah was trying to get her settled for her nap, she had to have her Elmo, her bee pillow which is a big fuzzy yellow pillow about 15 inches square, with markings like a bee and her cow. Now her cow is just a hard plastic cow and this is not the first time she has had to have it to go to sleep....

She is also really enjoying getting to see her daddy every day...

She ended up sick at the end of last week...one doctor said it was a double ear infection...and gave her an antibiotic. The next day she had a rash, which they were afraid was an allergic reaction so they took her to another doctor, who said that he thought it was a heat rash from such high temperatures, and said that if it was an allergic reaction it would be more splotchy. He also said her ears looked fine, but her throat was red and that it might have been strep but the antibiotic the other doctor had prescribed would take care of it.

Then yesterday she fell and hit her head on the TV stand and got a goose egg..I have picture but not going to show it. It makes me hurt just to look at it. So, it has been somewhat of a rough start over there...but things will settle down.

Moving and adjusting takes so much time. The routines are all messed up, too. You have adjusting to do and routines that have changed now. Take your time. :)

Poor Lorelei! Being sick and then hitting her head on the TV stand is absolutely NO FUN!


I like the photo of the entrance to the tunnel/bridge.

I liked getting to see the outside of the tunnel. It certainly is a strange, narrow passageway. Do you and your daughter have cameras on your computers? It would be a natural to get to see and talk to Lorelei on SKYPE.

Interesting bridge--hope Lorelei has smooth sailing for a while!!!!!

I was sorry to hear about Lorelei's hard week. I hope her rash and goose egg are gone and she is feeling much better.
I can understand why there was a height restriction on this road.

Great info about the tunnel, Rose. Thanks for sharing. Isn't it amazing what is out there --and sometimes we ride by and don't see it!!!

Glad Lorelei is adjusting to the new home. Sorry she fell though. I know you miss her. You all may need to make EXTRA trips to Indy to see her more often. The little ones grow up SO fast.

Hugs,
Betsy

Did you drive through that tunnel?

The last time I was with our girls Lucy got sick and I took her to the Dr. she had a really red rash. The doctor told me they sometimes get a viral rash.
Hope Lorelei is all better soon.

Judy said...

Interesting about the tunnel...Yes, did you drive though it? I hope Lorelei gets better...Those bumps can look pretty awful.

Mary said...

We've got a couple old railroad bridges like those here...will have to see what date they have one them. I like your photos and remember seeing the one in Dee's blog, too. Poor Lorelei....hope she is better soon. Hope you get to see her soon, too. Glad to know she is settling in.

Those dates do look the same, Rose! I can't imagine driving through that tunnel. Obviously, it is a one-lane road. Is it also one-way?

Sorry to hear about Lorelei's troubles. I hope she is well again by now.
