Monday after The 2016 National Train Show

My friends,

I had a fantastic time this past week with our G ~ B & C C CREW AGAIN which has been together for 13 years now, good ones too – eh guys and dolls?

Ed Scullin drove over 500 miles home to Roanoke, Va. today after some medical treatment at the Convention Center on Sunday. He smartly stopped and took a nap midday on the way. All is reportedly okay with him. GET HEALTHY ED!

Judy and Don Avila headed straight to their local Steak & Shake after getting home to Akron , Ohio.

Dora and Garth Hamilton have, by now, pulled into their driveway at Font Hills (Niagara) Ontario, Canada.

Judi G. and I arrived in Shreveport, Louisiana tonight at 822 miles logged today. Only 225 more miles to home in Houston (Spring) , Texas tomorrow.  Roads today were in good shape, minimal road work slowdowns.

Our newest crew members, John and Kathryne Buckley from The Woodlands, Texas should have had a nice flight back home this afternoon to the Houston , Texas area.

My oldest friends (& snow ski buddies ) Bob Brown and wife Caroline, were with us for Friday through Sunday as tenured crew members. They drove down to Indy and returned to their home in Commerce, Michigan.

A big thank-you goes to Takashi san Ishikawa (Mister Monday Man), along with his colleague Toru san Kurihara, who took time to celebrate our good fun at these National Train Shows. We also finally got to enjoy the special Japanese “Sweet Treats” on Sunday that Tony-san brought to us.

It has truly been my immense pleasure to continue to share this life with you all.  I am blessed.

Cordially Yours,

Mister Dave
President and Senior Maintenance Man
