    Jim,That's real grass..Perhaps I should say Ohio wild grass? I only use image ready to size the pictures and optimize.I use Photoshop to enlarge the image and crop the picture if needed..I really don't know how to use Photoshop beyond that.:oops: I don't have print shop.

    Tony not yet..Due to the high humidity over the last 2 days I am having a rough time health wise..I will try in the morning when its still cool..:D

    Jim,The reason we call that type of grass "Ohio wild grass because it will grow anywhere including stoney fields and there a lot of clover,crab grass and weeds mix together in it.

    The Heat

    I can understand that its been in the high 90's plus all week down here and there are no signs of it letting up either.

    Got to see something interesting though the other day, I was working on the road by the CSX main In NAshville, I heard the sound of wheels on track and didnt hear and engine Well when I looked up here comes a box car nothing else rolling down the tracks. As the car passed I saw a breakman on the back of the car riding the ladder and working the brake down to the next siding where it was to be set out. A few minutes later here comes an mp1500 and picks him up.
    I thought they stopped this practice of rolling cars. Its nice to see they still do things the old way.
    Yes, I know need to start caring my camera with me more ofton:wave:
