Trains

It is cold and raining.

It is a long time until spring break.

I have a sinus infection and a bad knee and I'm out of bacon.

Peeps, this would be a good day to run away from home.  Maybe we could take a train.


We no longer have a passenger train here; we have to go to Birmingham or Memphis to get aboard.  Sometimes, it is worth the drive.


 
 Taking the train means you don't have to find directions or parking places. You don't have to argue about who is going to drive. You just relax while the train rocks you to sleep.


We rode this train in Skagway, Alaska, going over the mountain into Canada.  It was breathtakingly beautiful.



Because I have promises to keep and many things to do before I sleep, I just can't run away today.  But soon, Peeps, soon.
