Five on Friday - The "Train" Version
Nope, this week I decided to go with a train theme being as how that's exactly where I should be on this last Friday in February - sitting comfortably while looking out the window of an Amtrak car as I watch the miles roll by. Rather than flying down to Florida for my cruise, I decided to do something I've wanted to do for a very long time and take the train instead. Yes, it takes a lot longer but it appeals to that love of trains that I inherited from my grandfather. As a matter of fact, I'm willing to bet that Gramp will be right there along with me in spirit for my trip from New London to Jacksonville. Y'all honestly have no idea how much I've been looking forward to this particular leg of my vacation - seriously.
So, with that, I leave you with five songs that mention trains somewhere in their title. I could have certainly gone with a lot more than five but I hope you like the five that I ended up choosing. I'm kind of partial to Cat Stevens and The Monkees this week myself!
If you get the chance, pop on over to Trav's Thoughts, the master of this meme, and see what he and the other FOF'ers have chosen for their Friday offerings. I can tell you that my friend Jamie from the Left Coast did her Five on Friday in my honor this week and if you click over to there you'll find some party and/or silly songs and the beverages to go with them designed to put me in the mood for my first ever cruise. What a gal! Thanks, Jamie! I'll take one of each!
