This is really stupid... I'm not going to offer an opinion on what part.
I got stung by a bee a few days ago... again... it's the second time this summer. I've figured out I'm slightly allergic. Before the fever I wasn't allergic to anything. If I don't take some benedryl, I'll get some mild hives. The bee sting was right in the web of my hand between my thumb and made it difficult to use the thumb. I have had muscle and joint aches like a mini-flu too.
I had to lay off work... If I had my bosses job, I would have not even mentioned it. They consider it an off duty injury.
Now that I'm better, the RR wants me to get a return to work OK from the Doctor...
It's all unbelievable... I'll miss 3 trips because of this.

We are waiting for helpers. I steal the internet connection near the Livingston NP depot. Later we will come out of the Bozeman tunnel with bell ringing on 2 rear units. Slow going today... 12,000+ ton regular freight train... unusual

I don't add to the Blog much other than RR photos 'cause the tendency is to bitch about stuff. I mange to keep pretty quiet about stuff on the RR that gripes me but I've been sick again (CFS is a roller coaster, but not much fun) so here goes...
And I hate getting older.. At this point I don't tolerate the schedule (or lack of) an Engineer anymore. I have little energy, less exhilaration, etc. OK, I feel better - <- note... this was edited... it was just too much... see!
Well, at least I don't have a beer and a remote in my hand... If I could just get away from the stupid computer it would be great.
Today I went to the airport to watch the Fire Tanker airplanes today... that was it, I didn't do one thing other than that.
