      Just saw this, sorry.  Of course, we plan to be there.  Will show up this afternoon, unless you say otherwise.  Been looking forward to this weekend since June.  Weather should be fantastic.  The work on the inside portion of the railroad is very exciting, let alone - outside.

      We started the weekend friday night with 2 and a half inches of rain in the guage Saturday morning...   The yard held up pretty well, considering...

      Had about 18 folks here, and ran 9 trains..   Saturday afternoon the skies cleared up and was a good afternoon, altho, was a tad Humid....  Prospects for today are sunny and about 80 degrees F for a high...

      I dropped by David Russell's place, but no-one was home....even had a cooler full of bheer to keep him tranquilized on the trip.....so, without a co-pilot, I headed for home.....the only flight path I knew well enough, to drive alone.

      Maybe next year....
