Dream of:22 July 1984 "Snow On The Bridge"
I was looking at the U.S. Grant bridge inPortsmouth, and decided I wanted to buy it. I thought if I owned the bridge, I would be able to help people by taking care of it, but I realized the bridge would probably be quite expensive, and I didn't have any money.
The bridge looked more like a large, wooden, walking bridge than the actual highway bridge which it is. To get on to the bridge, a person first had to walk on a metal bar and hold onto a wire before reaching the bridge. The wire could still be held when actually walking across the bridge.
Finally I went up to walk across the bridge myself, and when I did, I realized snow was on the bridge. Since I wanted to help people, I thought, "Well, the first thing I'm going to do is, I'm going to clear off some of this snow."
So I picked up a shovel and shoveled off the snow across the entire bridge to Kentucky. I then returned to the Ohio side and walked back down under the bridge to take another look at it.
Anderson showed up and I began talking with him about my buying the bridge. He said it wouldn't be necessary for me to buy the whole bridge at once. Since it was owned by many different people, I could just buy an interest in it. I thought maybe as many as 1,000 people owned an interest in the bridge.
Anderson said that the important thing which happened each year was that a train company was picked whose train went across the bridge. I realized a railroad track was also on the bridge, and said, "Oh yea, that would be important to be able to help determine what kind of train would go across that bridge."
