Listen to the Jingle

Wabash Cannonball
via here
The train from my childhood...set to a familiar tune from my childhood.  The Wabash Cannonball...an American folk song mythologizing a fictional train.  Often sung by my Father...a song forever present in my cerebral iTunes collection.  

All aboard

Haaa! I laughed out loud when Mischief and Pup Pup derailed the train. That grin she gave you as the train rounded the bend for the last time...you KNEW something was coming!

Mayhem strikes again. I'm sure it's Pup Pup's fault

Right, Mayhem...who is also mischievous? At least I got Pup Pup's name right!

ha, I didn't even notice that. My nephew asked recently if I got money for this blog. Because he wanted royalties from naming them Mischief and Mayhem. Ha, not a chance Charlie!

Ha, the smile on Mayhem's face right before the derailment is classic! Love it. You are right, it must have been Pup Pup's doing. Love your tree and the train! All aboard!! XO
