Tuesday 22nd February 2011….at last caught him in the act!!!!!

The casa here is located on a very quiet cul-de-sac and two blocks from the lake

and the rail road track is before the lake so about 100 yards away!!

It is a single line track and used for transporting goods..the trains pass by both ways about 15 a day and sometimes early in the morning or late at night.  One of the drivers I have named Pedro and he suffers from a strange disease called ”sounding the bell so loud syndrome”…he leans on that horn and it is so loud and then it sets the dogs off barking   BUT  by now I am used to it and I just laugh when I hear him and say…”There goes Pedro”.

Today I caught him in the act……

I cannot pass up a train photo without thinking of my Dad and his Dad…both made a living and worked on the railways my Dad started his career there as a fireman before moving into the insurance business but my Grand Dad was a guard on the railways and spent his whole career there….

This morning after two hours of energetic tennis I went down town and used some of the tips I learned yesterday…
