Thursday (out of) steam, 9/9/10

Last night I had a good evening with Sam and his lovely mother, Bea. Although, I think I talked way too much, we exchanged stories of jobs, families and life in Iowa and Illinois. I hope I was as entertaining to them as they were to me. (Thanks, Sam for the Ernie Pyle books)

Swapping stories and telling jokes. Not a bad evening at all. I think this constitutes as my first "blog" meet. Hmmm...

Timing being everything, while leaving I was trying to remember where I parked when I got a call from work.

Yada, yada, yada, it's 2:00 in the morning.

Not one of my usual steam engines, but I just had to.

Dear Stranded: Bea and I were both thrilled to meet you and visit, and you are most welcome for the books. We landed back in Cedar Rapids at 1A on 9-14, and I go back to work this AM. The Rendezvous was a blast, and we plan to go again. Gun bloggers are a great bunch of people! TBS
