All summer my husband has been wanting to go to a train shop on the other side of Kansas City. So today we finally headed out. Last year he worked on his train layout during Covid. He collects post World War II
American Flyer Trains.
As we were getting out of our car, an
old man (I call all people older than me - old)
pulled in next to us. (my husband by the red
Honda SUV) I immediately recognized
the car as being one like my Granddaddy
had when I was a little girl. Granddaddy kept
a spit can (old syrup can) in the back
seat on the floor and I do remember
accidently kicking it over with my foot.
He chewed snuff and that was a bad day!
Of course the man was glad to tell us
all about his car.
I inquired inside the train shop and
a lady told me that the Clock Tower
Bakery was nearby. We didn't have any
reservations for their Afternoon Tea but
ordered sandwiches and some of their
lovely pastry to eat outside. The weather
today was finally cooler!
They had 3 tables ready for their
Afternoon Tea customers.
I really hesitate to show this next photo
but will anyway - this is an area of our
unfinished basement where my husband
keeps his train layout - sorry for the mess.
