It’s Wednesday already! You know it. Friday Fictioneers is here. Rochelle Wisoff-Fields of Addicted to Purple has chosen a photo from a fellow participant and wonderful writer himself, c.e. ayr of Sound Bite Fiction fame. Thank you to you both for your part in this week’s fun. I admit to feeling stumped at first. Then a most wonderful memory came forth and I couldn’t go anywhere else. So, sorry (not really 😉 ). No fiction from me again this week. I can’t help myself.

The boy was fascinated by trains. Less than a hundred yards away, the train rumbled by several times per day, shaking the house, thrilling him.
Daddy would set up his old set from when he was a boy and they would lie on their tummies, watching it go round and round.
One day, Daddy said, “Let’s go on an adventure!” The next thing the boy knew, he and his family were part of the rumble, watching the world whizz by.
How a one-hour ride each way could bring so much joy…
…what he wouldn’t give to go on one more trip.
A little show and tell, if you will… Aidan with Mick and the old train set; Iain, Mick and Aidan waiting to board the train and Aidan transfixed.
So many moons ago. This was in 2003. Sweet memories indeed!
