Flat Max's Great Train Adventure with his Sidekicks Scott and Wayman

To say that I've been busy lately is an understatement, I have been on the road... or in this case on the rail and have loved every minute of it. I would like to introduce you to my sidekicks Scott and Wayman, but the boys got so busy taking pictures of me and the trains that they forgot to take pictures of themselves. Next time we go on a trip together, I will remind them.

Anyway... if you read Max's blog post a few days ago, you know that Toni's brother Scott and a friend of the family Waylin helped their mom and dad move down to where Toni and Mike live. When Scott and  Wayman (he goes by Sapp) met HH, Scott asked if I could go on the trip with them on the train.

HH loves it when I travel, so she said yes right away and here are the pictures of me and my first train ride.

Now, I must admit... some of these pictures are a little hard to make out.  That's cuz the movement of the train gave Scott fits I'm sure.  And, it looked like to me that he was pointing his phone at me rather than a camera. Just saying....that being said, I think he did a great job of capturing the essence of our wonderful trip together.

Flat Max sitting in his seat with another train passing on the tracks.

This lady works on the train.  See all the pens in her pocket.  In my hayday, I did love to stash pens under the couch. It was hard to resist. I did want to grab a pen or two, but I was good.

This is me and a train...

While we were on the train, I read the safety instructions to the boys.  I wanted them to be prepared in case they needed to get me out of there really fast.  Thanks goodness, that didn't happen.

Here's the important picture.  Looky...looky... this is what they fed me on the train.  I ate like a king!!!

Here's the inside of the train. Almost looks like a plane doesn't it.  Well, we never left the ground.
I just want to tell Scott and Waylin "Thank you.... Thank you ... Thank you" for taking such good care of me on the train and for letting me win at gin rummy and for the plate of chick-hen.  It was wonderful.

Where we goin' next, boys?

How fun! I'm a little envious because I would love to take a train trip. I'm curious if I would like to travel that way. Flat Max sure made it look like a wonderful time. I always love reading Flat Max's adventures. Looking forward to the next one!

My human loves the train! It is her preferred method of travel when she visits her dad.

Glad you had fun on that train, Max!

Palm Tree Toni said...

Thank you Max for sharing your train adventure with us. I know Scott and Wayman had a good time too. After hearing the whole story, I'm tempted to try taking the train for my next adventure, but you know I love my ocean cruises best... so train trips are still on my "maybe someday" list.
Thanks again to you and HH. Toni
