A Season of Renewal
I was looking through some of my older poems just recently and came upon the following. Somehow it sounded like something we might think about today.

A Season of Renewal
(c) Art Fettig

Perhaps the greatness of America is seasonal in nature. 
And far too long, we, as a nation,
Have languished through a sleepy summer to a fall.

Now, our President reminds us of the cold, hard truth
That winter is upon us and we must get back to work with gusto,

If we are to survive --- and thrive.

Now, as we brave the frigid, bitter truth, we are reminded
That America was once truly “One Nation Under God,”
And now we must return to Godlike conduct,
As we relearn the truth that there is dignity in work
And pride in doing well.

So as we strive together, struggling, making sacrifice,
Renewing our commitment to our country --- to our fellow man
And to ourselves,
We will witness, yes, we will witness the rebirth
Of the greatness that is America.

Spring will come once more to our land
And with it hope, with liberty, justice and opportunity for all.

For that is America.

Say Something Good
Rain, glorious rain. Two inches so far and it has been raining now for the second day and more is predicted. We've had some winds too and all of the pollen is washed off of our cars and a man can go outside and get a good whiff of fresh air.  My sinuses are clearing up and I will soon stop my sniffin' and my eyes will clear and my throat will feel better. This living surrounded by trees is a good life but it does sometimes have this Pollen Challenge and I just bet this 3 days of rain will bring it to an end.  I was watching the rain splashing on our back deck and it brought back some days of my youth when I'd get caught out on the road riding my bicycle and a heavy rain might come up with no near shelter and I would just look up and laugh and get soaked all over and it was like the rain was washing away all my cares and all of the troubles in this world.  Wouldn't it be super if we could all, that is all the people in this world, wouldn't it be glorious if we could all go outside and wash away all of the troubles we read about all over the world and if they would all go away and if we could all live the rest of our lives in peace with a world full of love?  Wouldn't it be wonderful.  Please God, bless America and bring us world peace. 

Note:  For the first time ever a part of our road was washed out. Nothing serious but it does give me something to think about. What's that quote? "Don't ask for what you want or you might get it."  

Points To Ponder
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved. Helen Keller

A Little Humor
Golf - - a sport win which most of us stand too close to the ball - -  after we've hit it. 

Toughness is in the soul and spirit, not in muscles. Alex Karras

John H. Burdakin and the Grand Trunk Western Railroad

John H. Burdakin and the Grand Trunk Western RailroadJohn H. Burdakin and the Grand Trunk Western Railroad provides a look at the principles and personal values that guided John H. Burdakin through a long, successful career as a top manager at three railroads—the Pennsylvania, the Penn Central, and finally the Grand Trunk Western, where he was president of the regional carrier from 1974 to 1986. The book, written from interviews with Burdakin before his death in 2014, gives real-life examples of how Burdakin’s management principles and personal qualities helped him solve labor- management problems, update railroad technology, protect worker safety, and improve employee morale while managing a four thousand–person workforce. It introduces colorful characters who were involved in American railroads, as well as the serious, life-threatening issues that confronted railroads in the last half of the twentieth century in America. This book will provide insights for managers of any business as well as for those seeking to balance a successful career and a rewarding home life.

Trapped in Shades of Grey

Trapped in Shades of GregDuring the trying days of World War II, everyone was called upon to do their patriotic duty. But what if that duty required you to live, eat, sleep, and fight alongside the enemy? Christoph Ernst, the son of German immigrants, is recruited to become a deep cover agent in the German Wermacht. He excels at his assignment as a soldier and a spy. As the war in Europe heats up, he realizes that he has made a huge error- he has made friends and become a part of the army that he is helping to destroy. When the time comes, he is uncertain if he will betray his country or his friends. When treachery is your mission, where do your loyalties lie?

The Greatest Salesman in the World

The Greatest Salesman in the WorldWhat you are today is not important... for in this  runaway bestseller you will learn how to change  your life by applying the secrets you are about to  discover in the ancient scrolls.

Mandino's main philosophical message is that every person on earth is a miracle and should choose to direct their life with confidence and congruent to the laws that govern abundance.

The Santa Train by Art Fettig [Kindle]
The Christmas Train by Art FettigOnce upon a time, there was a worn out locomotive that nobody seemed to care about. Except maybe Charlie Weller, who was an old retired railroad engineer. And maybe nobody cared about old Charlie anymore either. At least it often seemed that way to Charlie. He had little to do but sit around and remember the good old days when he would run that ancient train up and down the tracks hauling freight.
