He is from Austrailia and was taking my house tour tonight. When we got to the wine cellar he began telling me that he works in a mine, 5,000 feet underground!
Mining for lead and gold and other things.
It is hot down there.
They drive cars and trucks down into the mine and a really big fan pushes air down to them with little fans along the way too.
The side walls get pressure washed to knock loose stuff away then Sakrete gets smeared on the wall, after it hardens small anchors are put into the wall , then a steel mesh gets fastened to the anchors and this is what keeps the place safe from cave ins.
25 miles of tunnel, 5,000 ft. underground!
"Looking for Love in all the wrong places!"
I asked if he met his USA girlfriend as they were digging toward one another?
She liked this little joke.
They had alot of fun here tonight, he has a great sense of humor, maybe being underground makes you appreciate fun and funny stuff more?
Here I sit in little Mount Carroll, Ill. and the "World" comes to see me!
(I have never been much of a traveler myself)

You have so many charming tales, Jim; you should write a book. :)

We have an "E-book" about done.
It is about the haunting here (Ghostly, not mine or me) I took it room by room.
ALOT of "stuff" has happened here!
I had kind of forgot some of it....
Another book will be the fun, funny stuff.
The third book will document the time a space alien pulled up at my door saying he had driven all the way here from Texas.

You never know when that will happen again. You should be sure to
have your video equipment ready!

With the current price of flux capacitor half life fees, it might not be soon.
