via Bus Nuts Online. Another note from the basement of time.
On the railroad a train with loads short of its final destination, say Dallas Texas, would be on the head-in of the train. Loads south of Dallas to Houston, would be placed on the rear-end.

Dropping off the hill in Henderson Nevada, I gaze upon Las Vegas down below in the valley, shimmering in the night heat, she twinkled like a jewel in the desert. I think I read somewhere that Las Vegas is an Indian term for spring or spring water. Next time I run into the gunner I will ask him? (A friend who lives out there in that part of the country.)

The other day I was over at this Sports Bar, you know, the kind of place where they have these girls dressed up like … Well, I met this bunch of guys and they were wanting to know if there were any good airports in the area. Continue reading
The Boys have been talking oil changes this week. (I call them “The Boys” all the time, they are bus-guys over at BCM/BNO)
Anyway, they are talking about oil changes, price of oil, and other issues guaranteed to keep you riveted to the edge of your seat.
There is a well worn phrase or title for sure. This morning I had Valentine’s Day and my A-B-C’s on my mind. I chose this subject matter.
The Valentine’s post can wait.
Here it comes, are you ready?
Warning: Contains nothing, absolutely nothing of literary value. As most of you already know. My blog’s major thrust today shall be, complaining, guilt and regrets. I will try not to let good writing get in the way.
“You Remember When?” Continue reading
Early Morning Musings: This morning I have come to terms with some impotent issues, things that in the past have given me considerable cause for concern.
So early in the morning, long before a few of you have even thought of getting up, I am hacking away at the demons that enter my world to destroy me. Continue reading
