It's almost October!

That means I need to get cracking on the Nickish Christmas CDs.

Suggestions are welcome.

No way...

WAY! The Redskins WON @ Philly on Monday Night Football.

That's excellent!

The Packers and Ravens won too!!!

No way!

Also, we found a photo at the archives sorting session that has been a target for three years of searching.

Here it is:

It's a Banana Reefer. A special refrigerated box car built by the Fruit Growers Express Company for Banana Service. We had been tasked to find that photo since 2004. One of the archives volunteers found it and made our Saturday.

So, it's been a great weekend.

First week of Football...

Excellent week. Go Pack! Go Skins! Ravens, work on it.

It's available from the Nike Website:

And it kicks butt!

Bi-Centennial Post!

For post number 201:

I am now finished my first year of Drexel's MSLIS Program. YAY!

Now let's see how the final grades shake out.

Let's see...I love my job so I'm not venting as much here.

Bad news about Mt. Airy but that was covered in Wacky Neighbor's Blog.

And Congrats to friend Cheryl who is going to be commissioned as a Deacon at her church this month! YAY!!!
