If you haven't read episode one, you might want to back up so you get the entire picture.
So I told you about Friday night and my lack of dinner evening. Well, my Saturday made it even more comical.
On Friday afternoon, my boss told me that he and his wife had been part of a fundraiser where they donated a ride on our train along with a meal from Dells to Sioux Falls. He wanted to know if DH and I would like to ride the train back to Dells from Sioux Falls afterward. There would be leftovers and some other co-workers and their spouses. We would meet in Dells at 8 p.m. get in a limo, go to Sioux Falls and wait for the train. I said, "We are in!"
I have taken short trips on the locomotives before while they were doing switching but I've never had a trip on the train in the dining car. So we boarded the limo with 3 other couples and headed to Sioux Falls. We had two bottles of Champagne on the trip. Good stuff.
Now the part that makes this an episode is that I didn't know what to expect for food so DH and I didn't eat anything before. And all my boss said was leftovers.............
When the train pulled into Sioux Falls; all of the guests piled out. Then the 4 couples got on the caboose. We prepared for the trip back and even stopped on the falls. We got to get out on the bridge for awhile and admire the scenery. I had never been there in the dark before. It was amazing and beautiful.
Then we reloaded and headed towards Dells. Well .......let me tell you that leftovers consisted of some nuts, and tomato and cheese on a stick, and alcohol! Not exactly what we had hoped for. Needless to say, we went hungry!
But we stood of the back of the caboose on the way back. We couldn't see much in the dark but we went through our town along the way and enjoyed some of the scenery. It was a fun experience.
When I got home at 11:30, I had a bowl of cereal and went to bed! What a weekend of fine cuisine!!!!!!

There are people who come and go from your life with very little fanfare. Then there are others who become a permanent fixture in your life.
Spark friends are like no other. You may never meet the people you support and who support you, yet you have a bond that can't be broken. Because they are like you, they are you.
They are there for you and support you. They give you guidance and praise and help you find the answers you need. They want nothing in return.....just your friendship.
Thank you friends (present and future).......even though we have never met, you mean more to me than you can imagine. I wish for all your dreams to come true and for all of your goals to be realized.
You are my friend.....in my heart.
