End of the sugar harvest crop, 2006~2007

After several months of working non-stop in Florida, we finally finished the sugar crop on April 11th.
From October 16th, 2006 to April 11th, 2007 Jack and I hauled a total of 9,456 loaded cane cars to the mill and took 11,149 empty cars to the various elevators.
The last few months have been a huge learning experience for me. I've learned how to be a railroad conductor, next is to be a railroad engineer.
I'm taking a break now to sleep. For a month or two.

You will be missed very much--but I truly understand! My thoughts and prayers are with the two of you. Have a happy life filled with lots of love and laughter. As always, you are two of my favorite people. Love to you both.

(Drop me an email sometime and let me know how you are doing!)

Sorry to hear that Tom, but a man has to do what a man has to do for his woman.

I will truly miss your post. However, I also know that my blog days are growing short too - I will have completed my life story soon.

Until we meet again...

aye, good luck, Tom, and welcome to the Northwest! With all the hippies, commies, Nazi skin heads and other varieties of assholes around here you might need to come back to vent a little! ;)

At any rate, it's been a pleasure reading your rants. Take care and good luck! Take good care of your girl. =)
