    It is time to take a ride and see what happens. My first time so I will be the one that gets perplexed. That's life !

    I'm ready to roll! Judy, thank you for all the thought, time, effort, planning and just plain hard work you invest in your mysteries.

    Oh wow, I am overwhelmed! So nice to see all the lovely postings you have put up. And so good to see all the returning faces, and new ones too. This just might be another packed train! But I know we can hook on another sleeping car if needed.

    I have my fabric cut, my first instructions written out, and am looking forward to this next mystery. I really drew a blank on designing a new mystery, just couldn't get my brain to click into gear, but I think you will like this one. Don't forget, on Friday it will be posted in a new thread, not on this teaser.

    Hope the we get the train that has the hot tub again. That was soooo nice after a hard day of sewing last trip. Right now I think this train is the only way I will be getting around, we have had the good fortune of having both of our cars rear-ended in the last 32 days, at the exact same spot. I need to get away, any one have some Calgon for the hot tub? I have some vegetable lasagna and wine if any one is hungry.

    I'm mixing the margaritas now! Gotta keep tasting to be sure they're good. Nothing worse than bad 'Rita's!

    I'm with SulaBug and Cindy, anxiously (but patiently) waiting for the next train ride. Thank you Judy, I know this must be a lot of work for you but as you can see, we really enjoy it and it gives us something to look forward to. Besides, you have great ideas.

    I'll be on board on the 31st!

    Judy,

    This is so generous of you. Ladies & gents: if you are going to chat about food, how about posting a new recipe in the recipe section? Twice as much fun!! WWpoints especially appreciated!

    My bags are packed and I can't wait to get out of Iowa. We're freezing up here! Can we spend some time in Florida? I'd love the chance to get warm for a few days and enjoy some sunshine. I'll make some no bake cookies to share.

    This sounds like so much fun!

    Thanks, Evie, for posting the links to past train rides - that really helped me understand the process.

    Getting my luggage down now and will start packing next week.

    Thanks, Judy, for the time and effort you have put into this!

    Evie, thank you for the links. For a 1st timer like me I have a whole new understanding of how this process works. I also know what I will be doing next weekend. Digging through my stash, especially since I am also participating in the 2014 group where you use only your stash; sorry cannot remember the exact name of the group.

    Ayellowrose, I am right there with you for a stop someplace warm. I am in MN and they are closing schools again because of the extreme cold temperatures and wind chills.

    Guess I know what I will be doing next weekend.....digging trough my stash. Looking forward to the train ride.
