Christmas Eve Adventure…

So, I’m coming into town to do my last minute shopping. I also brought my camera, just in case I saw a train on the Union Pacific line just north of Lawrence. I did see a train, and I stopped at Laptad’s corner to catch it. That’s when I did something stupid…. I locked the car… with the keys in it… and left my cell phone at home.

I waited a little while and caught another train, then I walked to a nearby house. No one answered the door. I did catch another train, as well as a car pulling into a nearby buisness. That buisness just happened to be Bulldog Tow.

So I walked in and explained that I left my keys in the car just up the road. The person at the front desk had a driver take me back to the car, contacted AAA on my behalf, and opened her up. As he was working on the van, another train arrived. I took a picture of that train, while the Bulldog rep took care of the paperwork and went on his way back to HQ. I procceded to town, bought the presents, and went over to Grandma’s to wrap them.

I guarantee that I’ll be seeing more trains on Christmas Day. I agreed to open the Santa Fe Station for the Eastbound Amtrak train.
