      Let's see if I can clean this up a bit...

       The weathernan is promising us comfortably warm and moist temperatures, with atmospheric excitement for your entertainment in the evenings.

      We will be there tomorrow, LORD willing.  Creek rose last time, didn't stop us.  Kayaks are ready.

      Intense sunshine impacted some operations, but a beautiful day was enjoyed and some of us watched the movie "The Martian", while hiding from the noon day sun.  I think Andy has seen it many times and says it is training for creating a garden railroad in a harsh environment.  Planning to run the "Freeman Spur Local", early this morning.

      It was a very hot, extremely sunny weekend..  Was a great time with friends and trains, not to mention lots of cool liquids and ice cream...  About a dozen folks each day participating..   Pictures will be forth coming in the following week...  The new switching puzzle at Freeman Spur received some nice comments..  Only 5 trains were run on Saturday, which was enough, without getting anyone seriously heat-stroked..  Sunday saw 10 trains run amid the heat and more humidity...

      Did you ever stop and wonder why?

      I know why my dad did that to me.......
