The Guffey town hall. I imagine the judges gavel hammered down many a hanging case in that building.
Another day when the pictures in my blog will have absolutely nothing to do with what I'm doing at the present time. And oddly enough, it has nothing to do with my laziness and procrastination. It's actually more or less a technical reason why this happens a lot.
As you all know, pictures can really slow down how fast your computer loads a blog or anything else. The writing on a blog is tiny in the amount of the kilobits per second it travels to your computer and kilobytes of space it uses on your computer, but pictures are the exact opposite, they travel very slowly to your computer, and take up a lot of space when they get there.
A blogger can write page after page without having to worry about how slowly that information will take to show up on their reader's computers. But, when you have a blog that has pictures on it, the speed at which it loads on people's computers has to be taken into consideration.
On top of that, bloggers have to decide how detailed they want the pictures to look to their readers. The better the pictures look on the reader's computer, in general, the slower it loads, and the more space it takes up. There has to be a balance of making the picture look nice, but not so nice that it takes five minutes to load.
What that usually means is, if I go someplace and take a lot of pictures, I don't want to put them all on my blog at the same time because it could cause readers with slow Internet connections to get very frustrated waiting for the images to load. Or the pictures would have to be so small they wouldn't show much detail.
So to solve the problem I try to split up the pictures over more than one day so even readers with the slowest Internet connections will be able to see them, but it causes what I'm writing in my blog to move on to a new subject while the pictures are lagging behind a day or more.
I'm sure there's a better way to solve this problem if I wasn't so lazy, and I probably would if I wasn't such a procrastinator.
This car looks like it was used by a local moonshiner to run the load into town.
I was wondering why all these broken down cars are laying all over Guffey and found out that the local auto mechanic, Stumbling Bob Womack, had a drinking problem so severe that in 50 years of being the only auto mechanic in town he never sobered up enough to fix a car.
This house was designed and built by nationally known architect Hank Lloyd Wright, not to be confused with his more famous brother Frank. Hank was a drinking buddy of Stumbling Bob Womack and designed all of his houses while sitting at, or laying under, his favorite table at the Freewater Saloon. This is one of his most famous architectural designs called "Splitsville"
A little paint, top up the air pressure in the tires and this "T" Bucket will be ready for the Drags next weekend.
