    I know you have a passion for trains. Recently I rode on the California Zephyr from Osceola, IA to Denver, CO with my 9-year old son. On our return home to Minnesota, I saw that the Curbside Classic website had just published a great feature on the Zephyr: http://www.curbsideclassic.com/uncategorized/trackside-classic-1949-70-california-zephyr-a-silver-thread-across-america/
    I was again in Denver last week, and I saw one of the Union Pacific Big Boy locomotives at the Forney Museum of Transportation. On my return, I saw that Curbside Classic had just published a feature on the Big Boy: http://www.curbsideclassic.com/trackside-classic/trackside-classic-1941-union-pacific-4-8-8-4-no-4014-amazing-things-happen-in-wyoming/

      My taste in trains goes more to complex switching yards, train dispatching, interlockings, and more the business of freight rather than passenger trains. Google News told me about the Big Boy restoration, but I will be busy for a few days.

    I MAY have completed my move to Pineville NC.

    You MAY have heard there was a special election in the 9th Congressional district of NC. Because Republicans have no party discipline, something like 8 people ran in the primary. Mister Bishop, sponsor of the HB2 gay bathroom bill in the NC Legislature won handily and has a September match with a fairly moderate Democrat.

    However, since I am now in Pineville, I am now in a gerrymandered “voting rights” district represented by Alma Adams, widely known for her extensive hat collection. District 9 is just a faint memory.

    ..but one less father. The father of KFI’s Tim Conway Jr. has passed away. Better known than the son, the son has a good local show:

    “Listen to Tim Conway Jr. Weekdays from 6 PM – 10 PM on KFI AM 640!”

    [That would be 9 PM – 1 AM ET for all you readers in Pineville, Hooterville, Mayberry and points beyond. 😉 ]
