Another train ride

On 20, Apr 2012 | No Comments | In Travel | By Lindsey

We are passing through Hammond, LA right now. Been on the train since 6:30. Another two hours to go before we get to New Orleans where Mom and Dad will pick me up and head to Stone County.

Sitting next to me is Lonny from Dyersburg, TN.

He’s also heading to NOLA where he hopes to meet some of his Dad’s people. His dad died when he was a baby, so this search is 53 years in the making. Lonny kept me alert this morning with funny statements like,

“I wish people still bought boom boxes.”

“how do I get my Beyonce tapes onto one of those pods.”

And

“those “kardasin” girls are pretty”

I find him refreshing!! He just found this BB King tape and is so excited. It has songs he’s never heard. He told me all about the famous bluesman, who I’ve seen live, as if his music was just released and I need not miss it.

It’s my favorite transition now where the oaks now have Spanish moss. I’m home!!
