Happy New Year!!

Copyright ©2021 Deborah M. Zajac. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

The snow plows, and crews were very, very busy this last week reopening all the major roads into and out of NV/CA. He-Man and I are so thankful for them!!! With their hard work and a break in the weather we took advantage on Christmas Eve day and went to Baby Girl’s for Christmas. Then we got stuck there for several days. We can’t complain!! 🥰 It was lovely hanging out with the them and boys a bit longer.

Yesterday our preferred route over Carson Pass opened up so we headed home.

I wanted to compose a new still-life for this year’s last post, but I haven’t had a chance this past week to do anything so I’ll end the year with an old image.

It’s been a year hasn’t it. Let’s hope 2022 is even better. I wish you all a very

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Whatever Weds. Lighted Golf Cart Parade

Copyright ©2020 Deborah M. Zajac. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

As I mentioned last week we were going to be treated to a Lighted Golf Cart Parade in my community by several neighbors that have their own golf carts.

It was a small but festive parade with just 6 golf carts. Myself and my neighbors waited outside in the cold for the parade to get to our end of the street. It was dark by the time they arrived. Here are a few images of the parade.

Here they come!

Santa!

…and quick as wink they were gone.

It was fun, and I hope they do it again next year!

I hope you’re all enjoying the Holiday lights and spirit of Christmas, and having a good week!

I couldn’t let our new Thursday Doors host have his debut and not post a door to welcome him. So, here is a lovely door all done up for Christmas that I spied while in London on January 1, 2020.

Whatever Weds. The Santa Train

Copyright ©2019 Deborah M. Zajac. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

In December the Nevada State Railroad Museum located in Carson City, NV rolls out N°25 to drive The Santa Train.

You know when I went to the Railroad Museum before she wasn’t out that time. click here to see that post.  I’ve wanted to get back up here to see the Steamie since.

Just as I did before I arrived early hoping to see the crew rolling her out of the garage, but I was a wee bit late she was already out and building pressure.  N°25 was built in 1905 by the Baldwin Locomotive Works.  She’s a 78-ton 10-wheeler. She hauled both passenger and freight cars between Carson, Virginia City, and Reno from 1911 to 1947.

Now she runs on special days throughout the year.

One of the special events she’s rolled out for is during December when she’s The Santa Train which is  N°25, a passenger car, and a red caboose. Passengers come for a ride around the station and Santa Claus is on the train to talk to the children, and I hear he passes out candy canes to everyone.

Here she is at the station getting some water, and passengers.

The Santa Train

I spy Santa!  He’s with the Conductor, Engineer, the Brakemen, and some Elves disguised as cowboys. 😉

Santa Claus

Here comes THE SANTA TRAIN!! TOOT! TOOT!

The Santa Train

I don’t know if I’ll be posting much anymore this year things are going to get busy pretty quick. Big Baby Boy and The Crosscourt Kitty🐈 are arriving soon for the Holidays and #1 Grandson is coming to visit too!

There’ll be kids jingle belling, holiday greetings, gay happy meetings, and tales of the glories of Christmases long, long ago! It really is the most wonderful time of the year!

In case I don’t get another chance to let me wish you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, and a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous New Year!! xx

I’m chugging out…TOOOOT! TOOT! 😍
