Loose Ends

Today I have several loose ends to take care of here in Cyrsti's Condo.

First of all, Mandy (who is a fellow train buff) asked about the picture I posted of Liz and I on the Royal Gorge train in Colorado. It by far was my favorite of the trips we took. The road bed was better and the rail coach was more comfortable. Also, more importantly, the view of the river which ran next to us was gorgeous.

My next favorite was the  Durango and Silverton narrow gauge trip, also in Colorado. I enjoyed the fact the trip was pulled by a real steam engine. Also I enjoyed both Durango and Silverton. Silverton was especially authentic to me.

Finally, we also rode the Georgetown Loop narrow gauge railway. It was fine but still my third favorite to me. So there you go Mandy, my humble opinion on the rails we road.

As you can see in the picture, it was definitely windy on several of the trips, so bring a brush for your hair (or wig).

Speaking of pictures, Connie sent in a festive new holiday picture to share!

Looking good!


  1. Thanks for the shout out on your "Loose Ends" post (at least you included a picture of the loosest end of me). :-)

  2. Thanks for mentioning me! Yes, "still plays with trains" sort of applies! And yes, wind seems to be a common thing everywhere this year. Just be glad you don't live in CA!

    Yes, Connie's picture looks good! I hope she sees the compliment!

    Take care,


    1. Thank you, Mandy. I do appreciate compliments, even if JJ's are so few and far between that they derail me sometimes!

  3. Agreed! Unfortunately compliments are not my strong point. I learned it from my parents who followed any compliment with a you could still do better.

    1. I was not being critical, by the way. We were both raised the same way when it came to compliments. The result is that we neither can give or receive compliments very gracefully.
