Minnesota Zephyr

Friday night, Shawnee and I celebrated the 4th anniversary of our marriage by taking a ride on the Minnesota Zephyr. It’s part dinner cruise, part dinner theatre and all nostalgia. They are once again talking about shutting down at the end of the year, so if you’ve been meaning to, now’s the time. The dinner is very nice and the singers lend some 1940’s charm. The Conductor is a sweet man with many more years of rail experience than I have roamed this globe. He took us up front to see the engineer at work as he controls the either of the 1500 or 1750 horsepower engine cars. Shawnee is blowing the whistle in the photo above. The trip takes about 3 hours to travel all of 6 miles and back, so you don’t have to worry about spilling your wine. I’m amazed that I was able to get her to the depot without guessing what I had planned, but even more amazed that this wonderful woman has stuck by my side this long, and intends to keep doing so. I count my blessings every night. I love you, Shawnee!
