The close-up of Banks made me think of a guy I was on a Fire Deptartment with who "could get his face dirty on a walk trough at the hospital."

I'm assuming the AMR guys had just gotten off from AB and were in too big of a hurry to party to pass through the wash house. Or is there a culture point I'm missing?

Well, my experience is limited, but when grease, soot and cylinder oil are mixed in there is never "just a little" coal dust. It's one scrubbin' just to get in the truck to go home.

I know what you mean about having to cleanup before going home and than cleaning up again! At Alfred Brown I usually just change and am on my merry way though.

So what is the pretense for the picnic? 24th Annual isn't a spur of the monment thing.

From what I have gathered:

David Lucas of D & D anthracite, hosts a miner's picnic.

For folks connected with D & D?

Friends of Dave?

Miners in the Souther Field?

Anyone who can reconize a piece of anthracite in a rock pile?


We needed at reson for old friends in the North Field to come down to the South Field?

We needed an excuse for beverages?

Basically all of the above! It used to be the Independant Miners and Associates picnic. I guess David A used to set it up every year or something like that. As time went on it just became David A's Miners Picnic. Foods Great, Beers Good and Good Music in a nice location.
