    Kim, I'm not good at this. I am sorry to hear this news and I find myself staring at this screen wishing I could erase this whole thing but I want to say I am sorry. S.J.

    Morning all. Sorry to hear about Shane's passing...

    Sunny and warm today again. Nice delivery Brutus and great photos Don. Spent the morning musing on the flag holders on some old RTA cars still in service on Metra.

    Kim - So sorry to hear of your loss! I will certainly miss his posts here! He was always cheerful, and looking forward to the layout. He was one of the family here. He will be missed !!! Prayers and condolences for you and your family. Its unfortunate he didn't get to see the grandchild he was certainly looking forward to it.

    Good morning folks

    It was a nice 61 F and sunny this morning. High is supposed to be 82 F.

    Did the shopping yesterday. We set-up our new tent last evening. Figured we better do a test set-up before we go camping with my son’s Cub Scout pack on Friday. Tonight we practice taking it down and folding it so it fits in the carrying case.

    No modeling. I did look at the layout and say “I have got to straighten this mess up.”

    I hope everybody has a good day.

    Kim, I am sorry to read the news about Shane. You have my condolences.

    Chief, make sure you take care of yourself. You are more prone to getting pneumonia, so get checked. (and you call Pam stubborn).

    Don, great shots of that steamer. I remember many times seeing the American Freedom Train passing by my block when I was growing up. For some reason, they used that stretch of track for running to other excursions.

    Well, given the news, I don't have anything of importance. Hope everyone is blessed today.

    That is exactly what I am afraid of. This tent is huge. It sleeps six and I can stand up in the middle and I am 6-1. It came in a case about the size of an extra large duffle bag.

    Kim,
    May your faith hold you steady and strong through your grieving.
    I have been gone, the last week, and news of Shane's passing was the first thing I read here. My prayers for his peace and rest in the care of God. My prayers for you in this time of loss.

    Kim: Sorry to hear about Shane.

    It took a while at the docs office this morning. He loves the progress that the right foot is making but the big toe on the left foot has him concerned. An x-ray reveals what looks like an abnormal bulge on the tip of the bone in that toe. He also had to remove the toenail because there was an infection starting beneath it. Don't worry, I didn't feel a thing. Next week I have an eye appointment in Alexandria on Monday and it's back to the foot doc on Tuesday. He has me in matching footwear now. A camboot on each foot. They're heavy and walking more than a couple hundred feet is exhausting. People who park in handi-cap spots without a plate or placard for it hear from the cops double quick when I spot them. There are people who need the spots more than they do.
