I remember listening for far-off trains on the railroad tracks when I was a kid. Thanks for tickling that memory, Kathe!

(Thanks for playing M.M.P.P. too!)

Trains still hold the promise of adventure to me.

Sandee said...

Yes or hearing the train approaching. Very well done.

Have a terrific day. ☺

When I lived with my grandparents as a teenager we lived right on the railroad tracks. Sometimes I miss the sound to be honest.
