I was very happy to find that this week’s topic dealt with trains. David and I LOVE trains!

    • Thank you. I have a video of a crossing sign while it is signaling, but I don’t know if I can attach a video from my computer (as opposed to embedding from YouTube) to a post here.
      Have you ever seen one of the holiday trains in person? I hope you’ll get to one day if you haven’t. It was great!

      Have a blessed day. 🙂

        I haven’t seen one in person. I think they have one of those that goes with the storybook Polar Express, that kids (and parents) can ride a little ways. It’s during the Christmas holiday time. I’ve never gone, as we don’t have little ones any more. …I know, I wish I knew how to put a video from my phone onto my blog, too, but don’t want to do the whole YouTube thing either. I tried once, and it said it went on, but then it wouldn’t play. If you hear of how to do this, let me know. I’d like to see your signal! 🙂

        • Thank you. If I figure it out, I will most definitely let you know. If I can’t figure it out for here at WordPress, maybe I can make it work on my PS Annie! blog (not WordPress).
          You ought to go to see the Polar Express train or holiday trains when the come to your area, even though you don’t have little ones. Part of the fun is watching the other families there with their children and the joy the little ones get, seeing their little eyes light up and those smiles of wonder. It is great. 🙂
          Have a blessed day!

    Thanks, Suzanne! Maybe one of these times my daughter will take my grand-daughter to ride the train. She’s still a little young for it, but she loves Thomas the Train Engine! 🙂
