That darn squirrel!

Living in the city, we have some pretty tough squirrels.  In the past I caught a picture of one of them stealing one of my tomatoes right off the plant!
Well, this time he just left a rotten mess of chewed up orange peel on my porch.

Travel Day

I had a doctor appointment today in Philadelphia.  The easiest and fastest way for me to get there is to hop a train right to Center City.  The trip down was fine. I shopped a bit at Reading Terminal Market, went for my appointment and then had lunch.
Coming home was not so easy.  There were power problems between Holmesburg Junction and New York City.   having been stuck on the trian more times than I care for, I opted to take the long way home.  I took the PATCO train to Camden, then the River Line light rail which stops 4 blocks from my house.  I could have taken the R3 to West Trenton, but would have no way to get home from there except a cab......How lucky I am to have options!

Wild weather

Saturday we had lots of rain.  I was running the dinky train form Princeton to Princeton Junction all day.  The tracks go over the D&R canal and the tail end of Carnegie Lake.  For somereason, the ducks and geese would hang out under the rr bridge.  Every time the train would go over, they would all swim and flap away , almost all of them heading east.  It was too funny.  Sorry I didn't catch abit of video......
