Transitioning from Chicago

Although we don’t have a place of our own yet, we’ve now been in the Iowa/Nebraska area for almost a month now. I recently got my cameras out again and have been taking a few shots. Some of these shots are from around my mom’s place, and some are from the Union Pacific Museum here in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

Standard Time Clock
The Union Pacific Museum had a lot of old neat looking clocks from various train stations.
Abraham Lincoln
They had a model train car that Lincoln would have ridden in. Apparently he was a huge supporter of the building of the railways, even before he had even seen a train himself.

Woodpecker
My mom’s place has all kinds of birds that come by to eat the seed and suet that she leaves out for them.
