In Pueblo

We are here in Pueblo for Jim to attend classes to renew his water certification…this allows him to do the maintenance and testing of the water  systems at campgrounds. 

While driving from Alamosa to Pueblo we were guided to the side of the road by the State Patrol.  He was clearing two lanes for the upcoming convoy of vehicles.

This is the machinery called Mega Morgan; again no info online

Behind the machinery was THREE additional diesel cabs connected by steel rods for stability.  It must have been a very heavy load requiring 3 diesels to push it up La Veta Pass

We have a couple of dear friends, both who live in
CIMG2709Pueblo, so we arranged to meet them both for dinner Monday.  This is Judy who we knew from church in Alamosa and Jean, a retired librarian I met in Leadville while I was at a conference.

We met at The Hen House here in Pueblo West….and yes, they serve all sorts of chicken dishes along with fish and chops.  Take a look of Jim’s chicken fried steak!!! It was as big as his out-stretched hand…

Cute building with “all things chicken” as decorations inside.

Yesterday we shopped for all the refreshments we will need for our two-day area manager training Jim and I will hold Friday and Saturday. 

In the evening we met seven of our area managers at a restaurant and had appetizers and iced tea. (They are also attending the water certification class.)  It was so nice to be able to put a face with a voice.  Oh, we have a good strong crew and looks like we’ll have a terrific summer.  Can’t wait!!!

Remember, you are loved.

    It looks to from your pictures some type of electric transformer.
    The additional tractors can also add braking power for the down slope

  3. That's some big machinery indeed! I agree with George that it may be an electric transformer.
