Wow, look at the 22nd of September. I wonder how Marty got them to stop at his place for 10 minutes? Marty, you should have arranged it to fall on the weekend of the "Thingy". Looks like Mr Cozad has got the live steam bug bad!!

Speaking of UP steam, I saw 844 was blowing their whistle and it caused Keith Oberman to have to stop talking. I like Keith, but it was funny to have him interuppted, too!
