    Afternoon. Back from Miss Edna's [Todd's Train Depot]. Short visit. Going to mow but sprinkled hard so have to wait for grass to dry again. No big rain. Wanted to spray Roundup too. We'll see. Off to NH early Monday AM and drive down to Metheum MA to visit Jim Apitz. Run around to all the big train stores. Had an US Airways travel voucher I had to use before July 1. All my fishing buddies in Texas were busy so trains was it. Going to work out fine. Hotel and rental car free with all the points I have built [never used] over the last 3 years. Later.

    Good morning.
    Checked up on my mother's health situation and it's looking like she may be able to come home in a couple of weeks. Still plenty more to check out before then though.
