This will have a chance to settle for 1-1/2 years before track is built, as well.

Of course, we seem to be a lot pickier about our track, the ride we give our visitors, the safety of our very valuable historic equipment and, of course, our volunteers.

Fred,

That one is easy.  We work you so hard because we like you so much.

Actually, you have tremendous dedication to our Museum, enthusiasm, energy, attention to the details of what is going on and what needs to be done next, and you are friendly to everyone you meet.  You have no exceptions to that last item and you are always consistent in your demeanor.

To quote the Bard, "The Fred doth protest too much, methinks, on the matter of being overworked."  ;D

Hehehe!   I view you as a ring leader rather than a follower, Fred.  You're usually leading the charge! 
What–me worry?

Plus, you usually have a way of putting them to work. ::)

Oops.  Just as well- yesterday the excavator blocked view of much of it.  We’ll be back there today.

So today I’m promising pictures...

WOW, that looks so great!  It was really tricky (and actually a little scary) to get around, especially last winter when we were cutting trees and burning brush.

What an improvement!
