Baker is also on the train, but he is unhurt.

Verse for today  “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. When you produce much fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father.     (John 15:5,8   NLT)

I stopped down at the hospital when I got word that Jim Weisel may have had a stroke.  They have admitted him.

I put up the Christmas tree and made a beginning of putting the lights on it.

Gary, Karen, and I went for crab legs at The Trails End.
