December 29th- A Look Back

Many people at this time of the year take a look back to see the highs and lows of the year. We will do this as we will do this as well.

When the year started, I was regularly dispatching the Sue Line.
This photo is from one of those last sessions.

In February, the "drone flights" were made using a selfie stick.

In March the "Jumbtron " was added to the roof of the concession stand at the softball field 
with the help of Geoff Bunza, the electronic wizard from Oregon.

In April, I celebrated by 69th birthday with a Sue Line Crew operating session and 
a special "cookie-cake" from my wonderful wife.

Mose Crews took over as dispatcher for the month of May.

June saw the completion of the upgrade of the dock scene in Jeauxville 
thanks to the work of Sue Line Crew member David Colvin.

Marvin Bennett, Jr. added the patriotic tanks for Jeauxville in July.

Disaster hit Sue City in August as an air conditioning repair let to overflow of a catch basin 
and collapse of the ceiling. 
What a mess!

Animation came to the Sue Line with "Freddie the Forklift Driver" 
who moved rolls of paper around in Lake Hamilton.

LED lighting was added to Lake Hamilton.
Thanks to the hard work of Sue Line Crew member David Colvin.

The interstate bridge was completed in the Ginnings Yard area.
Again thanks to the work of David Colvin.

The JRK grain (named fro my children- Joseph, Richard and Kathryn) in Keithville 
was lit with LED lights thanks to
Sue Line Crew member Dillon Stokes.

I hope you have enjoyed this trip back through the 
many highs and occasional lows of 2016.
Please join us in 2017 as the adventure continues........
