D & R G Railway in April Chama New Mexico RPPC Postcard Friendship Friday

.This postcard shows the  Denver and Rio Grand Train in Chama New Mexico.

This is a wonderful Real Photo Postcard showing one of the trains that went through the Rockies....also shortened to D. & R.G."Thru the rockies not around them" was their slogan.
Highest mainline train in the US including the Rockies. Chama is near the border of Colorado in New Mexico. Went through a snow storm as the postcard indicates
Go to Beths Blog to see more entries in PFF.  She is sharing a lovely Thanksgiving postcard.

Collectible Book for Printers - Merry Christmas Theme

Page one from this tiny book.......Merry Christmas! Did I begin this little book with that wish just for its own sake, or because M is the most pleasing of letters to begin a book with?  I guess both reasons dictated the choice. I wish for all printers, and everyone else, a merry Christmas: a happy celebration of a good year, to all who had one; and of faith and hope that next year will be a good to those.....

Patterns by Bareroot.

I love embroidery Patterns by Bareroots.....I own one but some are available on Amazon.  Since my photos wont upload here I am resorting to an amazon link  I would share the one I own but my photo links is not working here today.  It is a pattern for a candle mat

My pictures wont link up here

What a challenge, cant get any pictures to work for this challenge.  Its been some day too.  It took a little longer to replace a weather stripping that was not installed properly.  But great now and we love our new Ford Diesel for pulling the trailer.  Of course when things are worked on computers get shut down, settings are off.  We have this gadget which tells what the temp is outside.  When we left the dealer it said -39 and stayed that way for awhile. But eventually reset itself.  Now I have to dash to the PO to mail 3 ebay auctions.  Rain and maybe snow is on the way.  I had fun shopping while truck was worked on, (curtesy car took us right to the mall)  Bought items at Best Buy, Pier 1 and Barnes and Noble

Postmarks Postal History Covers

Trying to enter my first blog entry for the challenge but its slow and I get errors.  And I need to run to town and get a part put on my truck so ot the door I go....should have time to finish with 4 more blogs later.

Fall Colors in Bishop California

We are home from our RV trip but planning the next.  Even though it was November the fall colors were still in evidence on the east side of the Sierra Nevada Mountain.  We found antique stores for some great shopping.  More pictures later.
