    I live about 100-150 yards from railroad tracks. Trains go by here, on average, 3-5 times per hour, 24/7.

    Dad said he worked at a power plant for a bit. The first night he was cussing himself because he forgot his alarm clock. His foreman said not to worry about it as he would get up at 6:15.

    Sure enough at about 6:15 one hundred and twenty coal cars went rattling by not twenty feet from the window he was sleeping under.

    Yea he got out of bed.


    Quickly from what I understand.

    dangerous practices.....expensive toys...

    I remember when Ozzy Osbourne got "buzzed" by Randy Rhodes a few years back...:thinking: ..think he woke him up???...:( ..It was all in good fun,until someone got killed....:doah:


    Where I had an apartment ,a military base nearby used to fly training missions ,and many soldiers were stationed there who's wives lived at the apartment complex..they would fly Huey helicopters right into the parking lot,with the cargo doors open,and yell to their wives!!..nothing like a Huey hovering about 75 ft away,to wake you up FAST in the morning!...:eek1: :eek1:

    They eventually got in trouble for flying too low in a residential area,after several residents in a nearby nursing home almost had heart attacks!!..:crazy: ....

    My house backed up on a not to busy main street. I would fall asleap naming the kinds of cars by the sound they made driving by. I can still name all the older cars by the sound thier starters make.

    I can sleep through B-1's and U-2's taking off... even through a B-1 power run.

    ... and the U-2's were while I was in a tent.

    Reminds me of when I used to paint semi's and grain trucks for a short stint and during those times when we had to drive the trucks to different towns for the big shows, I rode back home in the sleeper cab of a Kenworth which was used to haul some other stuff that couldn't be driven.
    Man! Talk about a BUMPY ride! Semi's are not smooth nor are they in the class of a Cadillac! I did manage to fall asleep in the sleeper, but its mainly cuz I was real tired and it was 2 in the morning. Woke up to the driver shaking my shoulder pretty hard.

    Talk about getting woke up.

    This happened a few years ago.

    "Texas cattleman Robert Shoaf must have thought the Russians were coming when artillery shells thumped down on his ranch one night last month. As his cattle property near King, Texas was pummeled with 11 rounds of artillery fire, the foundation of his house cracked and pictures shook off the walls. When the sun came up, his ranch looked like it had been through a night in Kosovo.
    Since the Cold War is at halftime and the U.S. Army's Fort Hood is but 8 miles away, it didn't take a Texas Ranger to I.D. the perps.

    Fort Hood officials admit two 155mm artillery battalions were firing at the time that Shoaf and his family were bombarded. And "shrapnel consistent with 155mm high explosive ammunition" and fuses found on the ranch match the ammo the two artillery battalions were firing the night the incident occurred.

    Fortunately, there were no human casualties nor did Shoaf lose any of his prized Texas longhorns to Fort Hood's not-so-friendly fire."

    Last summer I would spent many weekends at my buddy Jims farmplace. We'd do body work on Nicks 79 Ford till about 1. Drink till 2 or 3 and crash. It was either get slapped in the face and asked what I wanted them to bring me back from mc donalds for dinner. Or my personal favorite when i would would fall off the couch and duck for cover when Jim was shooting black birds out the window of his living room with either the 12 guage, or SKS.
