We had storms last night but never lost power and the alarm went off at 3:30 AM. I took Anne downtown to the Amtrak station. St. Louis is sure dead at four in the morning. Gone is the old Am-shack of old. Although the new bus and train station is not quite finished. Anne’s train was waiting there when we arrived. It was powered by a new GE turbine powered locomotive. Jet train, get it?
I had planned to take today off so when I got back home I went back to bed. I got up puttered about the house and then went for a ride in the park. Crossing Clayton I got passed by a girl, but she was on a scooter. I saw our old pal the Yellow Crowned Night Heron with some friends and got some better pictures of him for this post. As I rounded Pagoda Circle I could hear the rehearsal going on for next week’s Muny show, My Fair Lady. I could have danced all night! I could have danced all night! And still have begged for more …
Anne called while I was out biking. Her train from St. Louis had been delayed. She just barely caught her connection in Chicago. So all systems are go for a successful landing on the Planet this evening. I got 25 miles in. Dan went to work. Dave is up.
Today’s header has some other kind of heron in it.
