Living Legend No. 844

Last month we had a steam locomotive watch party in our back yard when Union Pacific's 'Living Legend' No. 844 made its trek from Tennessee back to Wyoming.

While it did not stop behind our house, the engineer did blow the whistle long and loud.

My cousin Rob took this fabulous photograph as the steam engine rounded the curve by our house. 

We had a perfect view and an even more perfect get together with about twenty of our friends and family awaiting the train's arrival.

Touching Base

After becoming quite disillusioned with Facebook, I am returning to blogging. I am looking forward to reading and writing about quiet everyday matters. I plan to resume dropping in on my favorite blogs to see how you all are doing.

My life is still hectic as I am working full time. I have worked the last 14 years with the state of Arkansas in the In Home Services nursing program.

On August 1, 2016 we were bought out by a large home health agency. It was a traumatic event. I am sure I will rant about this later.

For now, I am looking forward to Thanksgiving Day. Our children and grandchildren have scattered and we will be having a quiet Thanksgiving Day with just my mother in law with us.

She has developed Alzheimer's since my last post. A cruel and heartbreaking disease. We will talk about this later as well.

It is late and I need to go to bed so I can go to work tomorrow.

Good Night All.
