Cody begged to have today off from school so he could see #53 unloaded, but no, that's not him.

I didn't take many photos today, but Cody and I happened to be there when Alan had a significant breakthrough on the turntable screw. Here he is muscling his way through some rough threads. Photo credit: Cody.

The Mother's Day Tea event was fantastic! Guests seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves. They particularly appreciated the gentle breeze that kept the black flies elsewhere. Here are a couple of photos to show what the caterer, Maine Tasting Center, provided. It was really top notch. I expect we'll see more, and better, photos from "Start" shortly.

Only indirectly related to this thread, but worth putting out there for local folk who didn't already know.
This Saturday (crummy timing) at Curtis Memorial Library in Brunswick:

Brunswick Junction: A History of Brunswick's History as a Rail Hub

Railroad historian Ed Galvin will give a talk and slideshow on Brunswick’s history as a railroad hub in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Ed and his family have lived in Brunswick since 1970. He served in several management positions with the Maine Central Railroad. He held a senior Labor/Employment Law management position at Bath Iron Works before retiring in 2002.
Date:  Saturday, April 23, 2022
Time:  2:00pm - 3:30pm

I think this is what Jason meant. I hope my image stays put this time. ... And it didn't, so never mind.

Is anyone staying in Maine next Saturday? Will anyone be on the campus?

I'll be back on my feet this Saturday, so Cody and I are on board to be on board.

Well I'm stumped - much like the new parking area. I've posted photos in the past using the same procedure, and those are still there.

Thanks for your work around, Mike.

Strange. I reloaded the photos, and they seem to be working again now.

Here's a pair of photos of Mike working away on those 55-year-old bolts with his apprentice taking it all in. For hours.

And in a first, Pete was not hovering somewhere in Cody’s proximity (hope Mike survived the day). Instead, I spent a few quiet hours above the shop counting out 30 each of back newsletter issues to save for the archives.

Here's Brian limbing up one of the trees he and Mike brought down.


And here's Mike watching the last tree of the day come down after he and his team of 4 wedges and a bottle jack convinced it which was the direction to fall.


Cody hauled a ridiculous amount of slash to the burn pile. You'd never guess that it was in the 20s today - or that we had a snowstorm yesterday. Felt like Florida!


Fred tried to keep up with Cody, but opted for supervision after a while.


I didn't catch photos of Dave B, Zack, or James when they were working. Did I miss anyone else?

I knew this was the place to ask! Thanks everyone for pointing me in all these great directions. Naturally, it?s switches that Cody most wants and that are so blasted expensive.

Thanks Bill and Ed!
I?ll pursue both lines.
