    On Monday,Southern and I went down to a couple of the jungles I frequent to get some video of trains and eat lunch. He shot some digital stills and I thought you guys might like to know what the Old Man looks like. It was hot as hell, the skeeters were attacking in full force and we were dousing ourselves in Deep Woods Off and building up the fire to run the hungry little bastards off. Lunch was good--macaroni, cheese and Spam, topped off with a little paisano. Then we went down to T&NO Junction and I showed him where the first hobo jungle I ever saw used to be and shot some more video of a BNSF consist heading to Galveston out of the New South Yards. It was a really outstanding day.

    Well, I sort of debated with myself for a while about whether or not it was the height of self-centeredness to publish photographs of myself on 12 oz. But I thought maybe putting up an image would lend some visual backbone to all my yammering about trains, tramp culture, etc., etc. I really regret not taking more pictures of stuff when I was younger. Back then, I felt that I was there to live life, not to record it. I didn't really consider that eventually the moment would pass, and that someday I would want to be able to reflect upon it, and to show it to people and to be able to prove up on some of my stories.
    So my advice to you young bloods is to go ahead and take a lot of pictures. It's true, a lot of them will be spoiled and out-of-focus, but some will become icons.
    My Dad has a picture of me, taken when I was in the Marines in 1977, hanging in his kitchen. I was laying up on top of a six-by truck on top of a load of 155mm artillery shells in wooden ammunition crates. It was about dawn, and we had been moving all night in a military convoy up the Delta Corridor, and watching artillery strikes out in the Area light up the mountains. I was dead fucking tired, and pretty much hating Marine Corps life. My Dad is so proud of that picture. He says it shows character. All I see is a dead-ass-tired Marine who wants breakfast and some sleep. But he sees his son, serving honorably.
    Southern and I had a lot of fun. Too bad we didn't think to get a shot of lunch cooking. And, hey, I like Spam, LOL. At least, I like the kind that comes in cans!
    BTW--look closely at that black and white shot, at the dog chain. If you look close, you can see the "z-hook" sitting in a chain link, where we took the gunboat off the fire.
