Been hustling here since 6, so now a chance to check in.

Chilly here (SE PA) the last couple days, but brilliant sunshine.  Warmer through the weekend.

40 days left, only 20 working days.

Chip:  Great you were able to have your mother-in-law be such a large part of your lives.  Speaking for all the members, we lament the loss for you and your family.

Not as significant:  six weeks now on the countdown.

Note to Tom/TCT:  He keeps everything on the level, too.

I have one more Monday to work the rest of my life, but not this coming Monday.

Work has been focusing on the mess in Canada that has strangled rail service from Montreal east. And of course, lots of "experts" around who think there are simple fixes to the problem. 

Breezy and chilly today, but the sun at least is showing it's face.

Start the day with a little alliteration.

Good morning all.  Jumped over here and saw no one had opened the day, so here we go.

I have 25 working days to go.

Starting the regimen of no Mondays for the rest of my life today (one more, the next to last day of work).  Have to review and sign retirment paperwork.

Mild (for winter) temps here in SE PA.  Maybe work outside for an hour or two. Back to the grind tomorrow.  My "replacement" starts today.

No apparent answer.  Perhaps some of the southern based vendors would hesitate to commit to travelling at the end of January to Springfield, but would be more comfortable going to  Baltimore a week later.

On the other hand, some of the New England vendors may not want to deal with the grind of consecutive weekends, especially with the possible Super Bowl appearance of the Patriots that second Sunday.

I recall attending a Timonium show on a Super Bowl Sunday in which the Ravens were one of the teams.  Opted to take US 1 north to go home and after 5, there was zero traffic until reaching the PA line.

Look on the Great Train Show website.  They usually list vendors who've signed up.

Easy day at work.  Very quiet.  Get to depart early.  Early evening dining planned with another couple.

Come tomorrow, but 13 weeks remain.

Back to the grind after six days of vacation.  Just in time for Christmas as they say. It was marvelous. 

99 days to go.

Cool Yule, Y'all.
