It is very cold outside now and the warmth of Christmas lights makes it feel better inside. Our wing back chair sits closer to the tree this year as it fit there better than anywhere else. We move furniture around for the tree each year but the easiest fix was not to move couches and just place the blue chair right here.
Caboose has always been my favorite car on the train. While watching trains go by at the crossing in Murray, it was a pleasure to see the train to finally get pass and also to see the structure of the car. The only way the guy in the back can see the train is to poke his head out a window or to go up into the crow's nest and look forward. There are small windows up there when they look forward but an opening is all they needed to see forward. I wonder if in the old steam engine days if the guys at the engine would step up on the coal care and send hand signals back and forth with the guy in the caboose.
I go in at 11:00 today to work so I have the morning to get a few things done. I have not completely stopped framing things but the science teacher sneaked in four items for me to do. I am doing them on my time table so I finished the second one yesterday. I will do the last two after Christmas. I am recycling older frames and using old glass to put them together. The science guy likes the idea and likes that I don't charge so much for the frame job. A painting that I might have had frame of mine was taken apart so I would be able to use the glass on a previous frame job last year, left an empty frame that I could recut to the proper size for him.
I wish everyone a happy day today. Stay safe and thank you for stopping by today.
