    It's not exactly warm here. The sky looks like snow or rain are very likely.
    4.45 hours today and 22 even for the week so far. They got a box with wheels in it.
    All small wheels. Going to bring the truck tomorrow for the tools. Might have finally convinced them that I know where to get what we need in Houston without shipping charges. Off to the post office and then the box at the front of the neighborhood and then home.

    Watching the train preparing for the arrival of the motorcade, and it made me think of Keith on here, he was such a train buff. Saw a video done some time ago where Pres. Bush actually drove his 4141 locomotive, maybe just a couple of miles but still. They're showing that the train car has a large plexiglass window so people might be able to see the casket as the train goes by. Wonder when the last time was that a train carried a President?

    Wow, they just showed a shot of it straight on, you can really see it in the flag painted car (which is beautifully done artwork). Last night the church in Houston was such a lovely brick building lighted, and I being a photographer found myself noticing the huge lights set up across the coutyard/street to light the building. There were branches framing it that were lighted too and it was just lovely. The girls in white robes holding tall golden candles and a cross made me think it seemd almost Christmassy.

    edit - There's a camera on the train, rather fascinating to see the view from there.

    If it wasn't so far over I'd be over taking pictures.

    Apparently Union Pacific paid for it to be built; the locomotive was commissioned in '05 and has been in use by the railroad ever since. Not sure if they'll keep using it; sounds like the car transporting him may end up in a museum. The train travels to Dallas after this.

    Too bad David you aren't closer. C-SPAN.org | National Politics | History | Nonfiction Books has been live streaming views from the train and overhead the whole way (and have saved videos on their website). Getting close to arrival I think, it keeps sounding the horn.

    I’m literally going to be able to swim in it soon. We are so close to flipping the switch on the first brew day, and we’ve had a series of small set backs. Yesterday’s setback was that our walk-in cooler compressor, which came with the space, was not rewired as part of the electrical work that was done. There’s also a question as to if has all the refrigerant it needs (we need 35lbs total at $80 per). It’s the never ending to-do list, haha.

    Afternoon all, the weather here has been horrible wet and raining the last few days. Been very busy too taking some things over to Mums, even both my X cameras are at hers so only have a point and shoot to use at the moment.

    Wet and nasty here, but at least no snow. On our way to doctor's office for appointment we missed on Wed. Not a fan of driving in Birmingham traffic in the rain, but it could be worse......It could be Atlanta.

    It's actually sunny, I must be in the middle between Dave and Smoke!

    I woke up early with leg cramping that just started up again, and am going on not much sleep. It's hard to describe, I haven't had this in a long time and one of those things since the stroke I kind of forget about til it happens again. My whole leg tightens up and literally sometimes lifts my foot off the ground. Think I'll get out my old notebook of exercises and find something gentle to try and get the muscles to ease up and chill out already .I could go for a glass of wine and it's not even noon yet!

    Looks like SharonCat is getting ready for the weekend!
