Those wagons are filled with hay - headed to feed some of the millions of horses that 'served' during WWI. The feeding of the livestock required constant supply trains, just like feeding the men.

It's said, Britain shipped 500-1000 horses every day to Europe. In all, the estimate is that 8-million horses and 1-million dogs died while being used in the various armies of that war.

Don't Never Mind - It was another terrible aspect of that war!

I spoke with Brad yesterday and told him his never mind thread had taken on a life of it's own. He said ... never mind ...

This Old Bike
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

This old bike, here goes one
It sounds knick-knock, on a run;
With a knick-knock, paddywack,
Give a scoot a home,
This old bike has rusty chrome.

This old bike, here goes two
It sounds knick-knock, on foo foo;
With a knick-knock, paddywack,
Give a scoot a home,
This old bike has such a tone!

This old bike, here goes three
It sounds knick-knock, when its free;
With a knick-knock, paddywack,
Give a scoot a home,
This old bike will want to roam!

This old bike, here goes four
It sounds knick-knock, little more;
With a knick-knock, paddywack,
Give a scoot a home,
This old bike is noisy prone!

This old bike, here goes five
It sounds knick-knock, it's alive;
With a knick-knock, paddywack,
Give a scoot a home,
This old bike will hold its own!

This old bike, here goes six
It sounds knick-knock, for the chicks;
With a knick-knock, paddywack,
Give a scoot a home,
This old bike is in the zone!

This old bike, here goes seven
It sounds knick-knock, tis a revvin;
With a knick-knock, paddywack,
Give a scoot a home,
This old bike has nearly blown!

This old bike, here goes eight
It sounds knick-knock, as its fate;
With a knick-knock, paddywack,
Give a scoot a home,
This old bike will never groan!

This old bike, here goes nine
It sounds knick-knock, when it's fine;
With a knick-knock, paddywack,
Give a scoot a home,
This old bike has really flown!

This old bike, here goes ten
It sounds knick-knock, to the end;
With a knick-knock, paddywack,
Give a scoot a throne,
This old bike is heading home!



And there you go ----- Oh, Never Mind...
