The next photo shows another track maintenance vehicle facing west, but also moving to the East! If I hadn’t looked out my window when I did, I would have missed both vehicles. Timing is everything in life.
Speaking of which, I am still not 100% skilled in layout here on WordPress. I have difficulty placing my photos and having the text run around them the way I want it to. Perseverance usually wins out, but it’s still a hit or miss situation.
There’s nothing on the schedule until this Friday when I go back to the Orthopedic Surgeon for a final checkup on my shoulder. I still have pain each day, but it’s much improved overall — except that I still can’t reach behind my back. I’ll keep working at it and perhaps one day I’ll have full extension of the arm. One can hope.
Meanwhile, I’ve finished four of Helene Hanff’s books, the last one being The Duchess of Bloomington Street. I then Googled her name and discovered she had passed away on April 9, 1997, six days from her 81st birthday. She never married, and from what I gathered in reading her books, was happiest when alone. That’s not saying she was a hermit or anything, but she could only handle interaction with other people in measured amounts. I have to admit to enjoying the peace of solitude at times; and the older I get, it seems, the more I enjoy it. Free to be me, I would guess.
Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them. We are only here for a brief period of time, and we need to make the best of it while we can.
