The train passed right through our little town......

We tried to watch it as it passed, but too many people parked up and down our highway to even get within walking distance.

We heard the jets as they passed right over us, but alas, too many clouds to see them.

Oh well, just hearing the train and the jets was memorable to us.

RIP Mr. President, George H. W. Bush.....  Cry

Good for you, for trying to watch the train. We have a train track that comes through my little town. Had Bush's train came through my town I would have tried to watch -- with camera in hand.

Let me relate to you my "Personal Brush with Greatness". == In 1970 George HW Bush was running for US Senator from Texas.  I was getting ready for work one day and they announced on the radio that he would be downtown, standing on a certain corner, just talking to people.  The corner he was to be on was where I worked.  I of course went down and spoke to him and shook hands. == My Brush with Greatness == I guess I did not help, he lost that election.  Smiley

   I shook Ronald Reagan's hand in 1966 when he was running for Governor of Ca.  It was in Ukiah CA. I broke protocol when I charged the podium when he finished talking. I'd be shot in this day and age. Talk about the boonies..
