back to the grind

Things are pretty much back to normal now that I'm caught up on all my vacation photos. So it's back to the local stuff... I've been out shooting a couple times during the past few weeks, including a "ghost sign" mission to a few nearby towns a week ago... here are a few highlights.
Holmes Auto Supply - Decatur, TX

Watkins Automobile Repair - Bridgeport, TX

Purina Chows - Jacksboro, TX

Shamburger Building Center - Jacksboro, TX

"Service you can trust" - Springtown, TX

Thursday, November 15 - a crew member rides a "shoving platform" through the transfer track in Saginaw.

A KCS SD70ACe leads a southbound through Saginaw on Thursday November 15.

Well, let's see what the kids have been up to...

They've got the whole week off from school; here are a few shots from a visit to the park earlier in the week...

L - just hangin' around

M found the fence more entertaining than the playground...

Thanksgiving thoughts
Certain current events (the cyclone in Bangladesh, oppression in Myanmar, economic turmoil in Zimbabwe) often cause me to stop and think about how lucky I am to live in a free country in the civilized world, and how fortunate I am to be blessed with the resources to provide for myself and my family. In our hectic lives, it is easy to take things for granted and lose perspective of how blessed we truly are. As we plunge into the holiday season, let's not lose sight of what's really important. Here are a few things I am thankful for this year.

* my kids
* my wife
* my parents and extended family
* my health - and that of my family
* being an American
* having enough to eat
* my home
* my job
* my truck
* my bike
* being able to travel
* music
* being a Texan
* Dallas Cowboys 10-1 season so far
