Night hangs heart shaped balloons and other decorations all over the place, fills vases with beautiful bouquets and places small boxes of assorted
chocolates at each place setting in the great dining hall in preparation of Valentine's day. Takes out the fine crystal and china and places them on
the lace covered tables. Remembers the beautiful Valentine cards and stands them up against the crystal glasses. Goes up and makes a sound check on
the stage with the mics and various instruments amps and PA system. Ok...now I'm bored and no one is home.
Goes into the living room, looks out the window and daydreams.
I see the place has been decorated, albeit a couple of days early, for Valentines Day. I must say that Lorri is once and again on the ball for the
love birds here. I guess that having the dragons around doesn't hurt either.
On the other hand, I'm just getting over a case of "The Cruds" that I've had for the past week. Started off on Thursday of last week with back pain
that nearly had me in tears. I could barely move out of bed and down the stairs the next morning. My throat was so sore that I could barely talk for
two or three days. I don't normally get sick but when I do, I get sick as a dog. I was in so much pain that I could barely sleep Thursday night into
Heading east to Richmond, Virginia for a trip to the Carolinas. CSX 3346 leads five other motors and a behemoth of a grain train through town last
Thursday before I came down with that crap.
Felt slightly better a couple of days later. The back pain and what not had nearly went away but the sore throat was still a bother. I did somehow
manage to go out and get a photo on Sunday even though I shouldn't have. Bringing up the rear of a small lite power move out of South Charleston. Some
"new" power is seen passing through town bound for interchange with the Big Eagle Railroad at Winifrede, West Virginia.
Managed to get out yesterday with no ill effects to begin the day. Heading for God Knows Where, Virginia to be loaded, CSX 7394 east through town with
a somewhat decent train of empty tie gondolas under some gloomy skies.
Now I'm sitting here at the computer and listening to a David Paulides interview from a few weeks ago.
Wolf had made it back to the Shed with his friend Hugo days ago. They heard of Taylon's safe return, but had yet to see Night or the human
feline being. Pesky had divulged that all their time was spent in the confines of Night's spacious room, except for an occasional meal. Jojopo wanted
to smile, but was well aware of their fate. "Taylon will try in vain to persuade her to be with him at his castle and Night will decline and insist he
be true to his people who wanted their precious bloodline pure. It never changes." He shook his head sadly.
The white wolf shook the falling snow from his fur. "Their love is true, but Night Star is one of the guardian's of the Shedlands and a member of the
high council of the ancient order of Elves." Pesky flew from the heavy snow laden branch and landed upon the goblin's shoulder. "I think Taylon knows
deep down inside that it can't work. He has yet to accept it. I don't even think Night has really. I am sure her convictions are weakened by his
presence whenever he is near. And I think perhaps they are destined to keep the love alive as it beats strongly within their hearts, no matter the
circumstances." "Together yet forever apart" added Hugo.
The snow was falling harder as night approached. Jojopo and Pesky returned to the Shed with the wolf and the wildcat close behind. It seemed there was
to be a grand party in a few days, a combination victory party from the war and one of love.
There you are dear Chooch! I'm glad you are finally getting over the case of the creeping cruds. I swear, I'm going to have to set up a hospital ward
somewhere in the Shed soon. Guess it's the Season for folks to be getting sick and feeling crappy. Good to see you Hun! Ooooooh, going to watch the
David Paulides vid!!!!! Fascinating!!!!!!! Thanks!
However remember I'm not the only one here who has your back - Night also has your back, and so does Syx, and plenty of friends. I'm sure they'll read
about this tragedy and show you their support too, each in their way!
Keep me posted if anything happens. Even though I sometimes can't reply, I always read through your posts as soon as I can.

More memory recall than imagery, I seem to remember seeing you at the Last Shed reunion wearing them, all whilst claiming you hadn't seen Timely all
day since the previous nights dinner party....
That was a phenomenal evening. So many rolls of duct tape were used.
