Gentle Readers and Dear Friends sorry for the blip in posting, but I just had to have a day off - I didn't feel well and so I took a couple of swigs of NyQuil and crawled back into bed. I got up in the afternoon to take the who-hounds out and back to bed I went. I didn't get all the way out of bed until evening. I am in today, but I am still not at 100% probably 73 1/2 %.... so I will stick it out for today and then take the glorious weekend to get to feeling better.
Last night on PBS I saw two really interesting shows - the first was about the Lincoln Highway - called "A Ride Along the Lincoln Highway" - 2008 - the Highway starts in Times Square and goes through 14 states and ends here in San Francisco.
This is the cover of the book about the Highway
It was very interesting and now I have a small goal... to find the Western Terminus of the Highway here in SF. There is a marker somewhere in Lincoln Park - so at some point in the next few weeks I am going on a hunt and get some snaperoos of that sucker.
The other show was about a train - another secret love of mine - and not just any train, but a fabulous train called the California Zephyr!! The show is called "California Zephyr: Silver Thread Through the West" - 2007.
Travel by train - the little bit that I have done has been fantastic - and just seeing the Zephyr and all the period film they showed was a real treat!! Both shows where good with lots of information - if you get the chance - give them a look!!
There you go sports fans. Thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!
