|Merry Snowman Christmas!|
Merry Christmas! As you celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus my wish for you is blessedness and happiness. Take one of these days of the holiday season to do that one thing that makes you happy.
As most of my blog readers know, because Amtrak removed the sleeper car I was assigned to, I cancelled my December Amtrak trip on the California Zephyr. To turn that unhappiness into happy, I did travel to New Orleans December 4-8 for a brief visit. My outdoor activities were limited when the last three days were rainy and cold for New Orleans. So I headed to Canal Place Cinemas and viewed MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS to get my "train fix". Due to the weather I just took a few photos so have not uploaded a photo gallery. Instead, here are a few photos. Incidentally, the cruise ship photo was just before a heavy rain storm began.

Here is hoping you find happiness in the New Year 2018. For me, my happiness comes from serving fifth graders and worshiping Jesus at church and traveling. Continuing my love of rail travel, I have planned three rail travel trips.
February 2018 Amtrak and Via Rail Trip - February 1-17, I travel three Amtrak long distance trains, the Capital Limited, California Zephyr, and Coast Starlight beginning in Washington, DC, with overnight stays in Washington, DC, Chicago, Emeryville(San Francisco) CA, and Seattle. Leaving Seattle February 13, I will travel Amtrak's Cascades train to Vancouver, Canada, to board Via Rail's THE CANADIAN for a four night trip across Canada to Toronto arriving sometime Saturday February 17. After two nights in Toronto, I fly American Airlines home to Nashville February 19.
June 2018 Amtrak Trip - June 3-23, I'll travel Amtrak's Crescent, Cardinal, Empire Builder, and Coast Starlight visiting New Orleans, New York City, Chicago, Seattle and Los Angeles. Will fly Southwest Airlines to New Orleans and then fly American Airlines Los Angeles to Nashville. Excited to visit New York City friends and attend Broadway's DEAR EVAN HANSEN.
