Art Fettig's Eagles
...see over fifty eagles on display and they bring me such happy memories.

Among My Souvenirs
Years ago, singer Connie Franncis had a hit song with the above title and it was a sad song about a broken heart. Today as I sit at my computer I can swing around in my fine chair and see over fifty eagles on display and they bring me such happy memories. My office is crammed full of wonderful souvenirs and glorious memories. One of the book cases has four shelves of the books I've written and a stack of the CD's containing all of the songs I have written. There is a wall full of plaques and medals and other paraphernalia including a diplomat signed by Dr. Scholl certifying that I was qualified to fit his foot appliances. At one time in my career as a speaker I was known as "Mr. Lucky of the American Platform."  Sometimes I tend to forget just how lucky I have been in my life and how extremely lucky I am today to live in America and enjoy the good life of growing older here in North Carolina. 

Sometimes it is a temptation to see a glass of water as half empty instead of half full. We are sometimes tempted to look for the things we have lost instead of those we have gained.  I think I will dedicate one day a week as "Count your blessings day."  I will set out to enjoy all that is good and plentiful in my life..the comfort of a warm bed at night, a hot meal, the joy of family and good neighbors and friends...and oh, that blessed joy of souvenirs and memories.

Say Something Good
Basketball.  Yes, it is that week end again when all the talk around here is the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament. I'm sure that wherever you live there is some such critter. At the NCAA Selection Show tomorrow some 65 teams will be picked from around the nation for the NCCA battles. What is so amazing is how many of these games can come down to the last five or ten or fifteen seconds and SWISH...the lead changes and a team comes out victorious. In other words, some team might snatch defeat from the jaws of victory or some such thing in the flash of an eye. In the Virginia Tech-Carolina game Friday we watched it get down to the final seconds and I could feel it in my bones that Carolina might lose. Carolina was leading by one point but Virginia Tech had the ball and was threatening. Then somehow #50 Tyler Hansbrough tied up the ball, it was Carolina's possession in the rotation, and they managed to run out the clock for the few seconds remaining to win by ONE POINT.  Neither my wife nor I could understand that play it happened so fast, and we had to wait for a game summary later to find out what happened.  The Virginia Tech coach was so upset by the call that he ranted and he raved, he waved his arms and then he took off his coat and threw it on the bench and it was a beautiful sight to behold in this wonderful town of Hillsborough, North Carolina just a few miles from Chapel Hill, the home of the UNC Tar Heels. May God bless America and keep the fans, together with our troops from harm.

Points To Ponder
The power which resides in man is new in nature, and none but he knows what that is which he can do, nor does he know until he has tried. Ralph Waldo Emerson

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 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.
