Who knew, we still got the flu!

Apologies for the gap in regular content, but despite plenty of vitamin C, chicken soup, warm socks, mufflers, and toques – not to mention my annual flu shot – I still got the flu this year and was out of commission for a couple weeks.
We now return you to the normal programmed material! Well semi-planned in any case.

Home home with the trains….


A killdeer bird makes its nest among the tracks at the museum.

A picture of the killdeer that made it’s home between the tracks in front of the museum last summer. Museum staff kept the nest from being disturbed and the hatchings given a chance to take wing.
