I got call from my son Andy a little while ago and he said we have a new addition to the Weibel clan in MO. Her name is Sadie Mae and she is a Cockapoo pup That Andy & his girlfriend Samantha adopted, of course she will be staying with us until they find an apartment, so it looks like Rigg’s will have a little sister to break in and protect.
Here is a couple of flicks.
Andy & Sadie
Sadie Mae Weibel
All I can say at this point from 990 miles away is Welcome Aboard Sadie, and pay close attention and watch Rigg’s so you will learn fast to poop outside.
Look at that face, see what I mean when I say never take a pup for a test drive.
It was a nice sunny day here in Scranton, so I took a ride down to Steamtown and took advantage of my free admission with the senior pass. Got some pictures, of the CN steam engine going back and forth in the yard.
I also wandered around the shop area and saw these plates that had been cut out of the side of the tender of another CN steam engine, when the built a new tender from stainless steel so it won’t rust away.
They still have several Canadian engines that are just rusting away, it’s a shame some museum in Canada doesn’t ask for one and restore it. Especially this one.
It’s a CP Jubilee 4-4-4 passenger engine, one of two in existence, This engine was clocked at 112MPH, not KPH, in Ontario in the 50’s. It just cries out for restoration, who know maybe Canada has a train buff like Warren Buffett with a lot of money who will sponsor it’s return to it’s homeland.
Anyway, that was about it for today in Scranton, Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.
