I’ve been working on the railroad.
All the live long day…
Can’t you hear the captain shouting…
Dinah blow your horn…
I knew this song.
I knew every verse of this song.
I sang it all the time to College Boy.
It was a long song.
I didn’t have to think when I sang it.
Well…I could be holding college boy in the rocker and sing this song without thinking about the words I was singing and usually by the time the song was over, he was asleep. Was it the song? My voice? Or boredom?
Awhile I sang this song, I could be thinking of other things or other places. Other places like back in the 1900’s…
Dreaming of College Boy in my arms sitting in an Old Queen Ann rocking chair in front of the fireplace in the parlour. My husband, a prominent business man, had set off in the carriage this morning to close yet another deal. Once I laid College Boy down for his nap, I would be joined by my best friends in the parlour for afternoon tea. You see my best friends often would come to visit me from California. They enjoyed the hospitality here at the Stargazer Mansion. I enjoyed their company and friendship.
Back from my dream….
Another free entertainment for me, was to watch the smoke come out of the engines stack. I liked to see the different ways the wind would blow it and the different shapes.
When you were little, did you ever watch the clouds in the sky and see what shapes you could make? Same type of entertainment! hee hee
I know, I know! Cheap entertainment! Cheap date!
