    Yeah, I kinda had same situation with my dog. Oh well. live and learn. Anyways, yeah dogs are like humans but.. they don't complain, don't get bored, don't say I needa clean up, don't say i'm getting fat. They never hate me, They just sit there and enjoy life- Mans best friend.

    When I come home from a ruff trip I always have my four boys (ages 9, 6, 2, and 6 months) that greet me at the door with a huge loud "Daaaaad!!!!". Regardless of how bad the day was that moment is the best in the world. They all grab hold of my legs and hug me and then want to take turn stealing my PPE and vest and wearing it. My 9 year old has already told me he wants to be my Conductor when I'm an engineer and he is old enough to hire out. Although who knows if this job will be what it is now by then but it is still flattering and makes me think about how cool it would be to work like that with my son. My 6 year old admires the job too. And usually my two year old wants to play Thomas the Train when I get home.

    The other wind down is to read yardlimits and then head down to my "office/computer room and either practice my trombone or guitar or work on the numerous orchestra pieces i am writing.

    A good workout always helps me blow off a little steam.

    I have a 45 minute drive to / from work. I actually like it since I can drink enough coffee on the way there to get in the work mind frame & think about stuff. The same applied on the way home, I can decompress a little (usually) if I've had a stressful day. When I get home, I like to just zone out a little bit & collapse in the chair or read stuff on here.

    When it is bed time (at home or away,) my habit is to get the room really dark, turn on something boring on TV & set the TV timer for about 60 minutes. I drift off to sleep pretty easily then.

    This highlights the differences between our carriers perfectly. Over on the NS out of Knoxville, This is considered a golden run.


    OT AFTER 8 AND PRAY THAT THE OUTBOUND CREW IS LATE!

    When I got home I cracked a cold one and went out to work the horses. Nothing beats seeing your animals respond well to good training!

    Forgot all about the railroad for a couple of hours!
