The Train Home

     Remember those days when we all took a vacation trip in the summer?  When we got to go somewhere distant and special?  Some place other than our own back yard which is what most of us have been seeing this summer when we wanted an 'excursion' into the unknown.  What I really loved was being able to come home on some form of transportation which wasn't the same as our every day transports of automobiles!

     I'd love to be taking this vintage train home from some far reaching vacation destination as the summer was ending.

Oh wow that image is fantastic! We have a museum of trains right in our hometown and probably have one of the largest train yards in the U.S. which is weird for a small town...but it just wouldn't be home for me without seeing or hearing trains...I've been put to sleep many times by train whistles. LOl! Fabuous design my friend!

Trains are a great transport for vacations. Except in those old steam trains one would get so dirty!!
Love your card.
