Hi M.A Hope you are OKAY!

I got a few pics of 4th celebrations at Washington Old Hall, but I realise you guys from the South may not be too interested, so I'm going to let you find them if you wish, no need to link them!

I hope you and the animals are all enjoying summertime, staying safe and well.

My very best regards M'dear

Greetings, Mike, and thank you for checking in on me! I was just over at your site enjoying your fabulous new DOOR! That thing is wicked cool! The animals and I are staying safe and happy, and we hope that you are too. Thank you again for your visit, and I will be back over soon to enjoy the rest of what you have to offer.

Harri the history buff, So, you're from the east coast of Florida, but heading to Arizona real soon! Well, I can certainly understand your reasons for the upcoming move! =) It was a real pleasure exploring your fine gallery and learning from you all the neat and interesting facts about Doc Holliday. I thank you again for sharing so much of what you know with me. I am really impressed with your enthusiasm and vast knowledge.

Best regards to you both this evening, and thank you for stopping over,

Hello there I,m so excited about pending move to Arizona. I really like the house we chose and the scenery is really magnificent.

Of course I visited Tombstone, actually twice even tho my hotel was in Sierra Vista. I thank you for sharing my excitement... I still have to solve the problem with my existing home..it needs to sell, but I,m confident it will..

How are things in Geirgia ..hope all is great and lets keep in touch best wishes/Harri

Yes, I commented on the pretty scenery in front of your new place yesterday! Did you see my comments? =) It is beautiful there, and I know you are just beside yourself with happiness!

Will you miss Florida at all?

Have you already put your house there up for sale? Well, I hope it sells very quickly for you so you won't have to worry with it.

Thank you for sharing all of your happy news with me! I can't help but be excited for you! I know how thrilled you are.

Take care, and thanks for dropping back by.

Wishing you a wonderful evening and sweet dreams of your new home,

Hi, MaryAlice! What a nice steam train! It's too young to be stuck into wheat field. It must work for tourists! Cheers from Russia, Andrey.

MaryAlice on October 6, 2009

Greetings, Andrey, and a great big WELCOME to you! I'm delighted that you stopped by my gallery and enjoyed this fabulous old Loco! Yes, I agree, it is too young to be stuck out in the field, but it's seen it's better days as an actual workhorse I'm afraid.

A tourists attraction indeed. Very sad, but true.

Thank you again for your interest and kind visit. You are welcome here any time.

Greetings from the USA,

Mary Alice

Is this just sitting out in a field on abandonded track? Or is it part of a RR museum?

MaryAlice on October 13, 2009

Fuscia, For the most part, Yes it is. They used to use it a few times a year for a demonstration, but I don't think they are even doing that anymore. =(

WOW!. I remember steam trains coming into town when i was a little boy. And we all used to run to the edge of town to see them, and stand in awe(and fear, if you got too close) at their bulk and power. Ahh,,,, brings back fond memories. LOL. Regards, and thanks for the memories again. Ivan

MaryAlice on January 11, 2010

Greetings, Ivan, and thank you for your visit.

Your enthusiasm for trains is so wonderful! I feel the same way! I still get that surge of excitement when I hear a train coming. It's just like I was still a kid all over again. =)

I'm so happy that this shot could bring back such fond memories for you, and thank you so much for sharing them with me here. =)

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead,

Mary Alice
