They're recycled, which makes them pretty "green".

It's my understanding that with all the various projects going on there is just too many things to supervise, even for a talent such as Fred.  Therefore, Fred will be teaching a project supervision class for aspiring assistant supervisors.  Graduates will be receiving a personalized chair autographed by Fred. 

Newly minted "assistants" will undergo a probationary period of 6 months upon which their final exam will be during FWW.   ::)

I'm putting them out every hundred feet for REST stops. 80 and up may use them.

That will be an interesting train ride to deposit the chairs, Fred.

Jeff,
      Today is my 72sd birthday; I very much hope I will still be here when I reach the age period you have established for those chairs! I want to ride up the line to them on WW&F #11.
