Trains and Family

We have a better sort of Monday morning than most people.

We reverse commute out to the 'burbs.

The Long Island Railroad is a very good venue for sleeping (did it myself for years).

The very platform I used to hang out on.

The green of a backyard and a heart

and a kitchen chair.

A very chic outfit

then more trains

and a return to the city

and the picturesque but numbing subway.


  1. Woops, don´t know what happened to my comments.......

  2. When I was a young boy, I also had a toy train with station, tunnel and a lot of carriages. Now I only like to travel on trains, not playing with them :)

  3. What a pleasant Monday- and two darling companions to spend it with.

  4. I've only been on a train once in my whole life and that was a train to Chicago a couple years ago. It's a fun way to travel, but of course, an Amtrak is not a subway. Your photos and words remind me of Eloise and that's a good thing.

    Have a great day!

  5. Elizabeth, I very much like the look of your Monday.

    What beautiful children appear between the trains!


  6. What an enviable train set, our grandson would love it!

    Beautiful baby too.

  7. What a lovely way to spend a Monday.

    cheers, parsnip

  8. Love you Monday story Elizabeth. ....especially the photos of the beautiful small creatures you see on your journey.

  9. Gretchen is positively gorgeous! Lucky Grandma and Grandpa!!! xxxx

  10. Glimpses that strike me, simply and profoundly.

    Beautiful, beautiful baby. Kiss to her too.

  11. It's lovely to go a different direction on Monday mornings these days...or even to go nowhere at all...I do love being retired.

    You have a wonderful reason to go in the direction you were going! Much better than to the office to start the work week.


I look forward to hearing from you!
