This photo jumped in ahead of the others, but it shows Robert riding the 7 1/2″ gauge train out at Mesa Grande Western Railroad last Sunday. Other photos from that day are at the end of this post. It was a cold and windy day with massive dark clouds overhead.
Fast forward to this morning — we truly need the rain, but we’re also in a bit of a conflict as we’re due to receive 10 yards of decomposed granite in less than an hour.
I have to admit that the view of the clouds laying across the valley do make for a lovely picture, but I’d just as soon have the rain come NEXT weekend, rather than today.
Well, it is what it is and we’ll deal with it. All will work out.
I have sewing to do today–I got the pillows all finished and delivered to the Depot on Wednesday, but the quilts are calling me again. I have about three crib-size quilts to be completed for the Depot’s gift shop and I’ve been asked to make hot pads, so I need to get off of here and get myself in gear.
Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Be grateful for what you have and for what you don’t have. We never know the sorrows or troubles that other people face, so be kind to those you come in contact with. Never forget to say, “I love you.” to those you love or care about, for life can be very unpredictable.
Here are the photos that our son Paul took with his phone when we were out riding the rails at the Mesa Grande Western Railroad. These clouds followed us all the way home and it finally cut loose with some rain just as we came off Highway 58 onto Tucker Rd., about 2 miles from home.
Mike Massee is cleaning and inspecting his locomotive. He built the locomotive from scratch, personally machining and manufacturing a majority of the parts.
