Always expect a train

Advertent railfans and railroaders know that the maxim "always expect a train" is akin to "one hand for you and one hand for the ship" for mariners. It may sound simple, but it could save your life...

SO I give you:

Quick notes

Some days my camera and I get along better than others. I've been thinking about getting the new Olympus ultrazoom, but am leery because it uses an older and slower memory card. The Canon I have can do OK ... but I *hate hate hate* the stupid lens cap arrangement and find the camera and I have not-infrequent artistic differences. My old Olympus cameras have been really good to me... oh... what to do?

Was going through recent photos as I dried from my shower and came up with this:

munching away at the "open plate" bird feeder on the corner of the deck -- you can see the tree we've
attached to the deck to make the birds feel more at home...

and this:

which was the sight that greeted me one morning around 5 AM when I went out to clean the cars off so we could move them for Denis the snowplow guy... who showed up before I could snap another shot...

Now back to work. Not me -- you. I got to go scritch cat belly before I can go back to work.
