5/20/19: I hope I'm back, Can't believe it has been around 6-8 weeks since I've been on here! I have been distracted with a lot of stuff the last two months and "Eclipse" won't run on my old computer so I finally got the energy and motivation to change out computers to something more modern... Took much energy and focus helping my son move to a new apartment, through two ridiculous Spring snowstorms and overall awful weather!
"Modern" endless AC Ge WideCabs are totally boring me train wise!
Reading Steven Ericson's massively detailed "Malazon: Book of the Fallen" series. I don't know if anyone else ever heard of this but it has to be the best "fantasy" series I've ever read.
I have many photos and artWorx to post.
Need to install PS on my new computer fist though!
2/21/19: Hope to upload first train pix of 2019 soon. Doing a lot of pastel paintings lately (like 4-6 a day). I need to take photos and upload them (cuz a few of my followers like them.)
Trains are kind of boring me lately: "just another WideCab or dirty GEVO" type snobbishness.
But I still love trains; just tired of the SOS.

1/23/19: I know it's like tough shit you live in Chicago so what. But I am really tired of the winter that seems endless (to me)! Last winter didn't really end until May (no Spring!) and went to mostly cloudy humid with no real heat waves. Then it got hot and humid in October for a few days then by the end of the week we went from AirConditioner (10/8-9 to Heat (10/11)! The earliest I can remember putting on heat. Usually we wait til November. But even Wife-Critter was cold!
Freezing rain... snow, then arctic air, then more snow followed by even colder arctic air. Yet I hear the polar iceCaps are melting, polar bears and penguins are dying..
