About tehachap

The easiest way to define myself is as a very happily married woman with two sons and two grandsons. My hobbies include reading, writing, sewing, trains (watching, photographing and running them in G scale), and travel. My husband and I are retired and we spend our winters in Arizona. I used to own a secretarial and desktop publishing business, but closed it when my husband retired in 1999. We have truly enjoyed our retirement years, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.

I captured the photo above from my neighbor’s web cam:  Tehachapi Live Train Cam at West Cable. The weather has been drizzle, drizzle dew all day long. Not cold enough for snow, and not enough rainfall to really call it a … Continue reading

Once again, I’m up in the wee hours of the morning — it’s just early morning now, but then I’ve been up for about 3 hours already. If I go to bed too early, I wind up getting up very … Continue reading
