G'day, everybody. Another fabulous day here, weather-wise. Hot enough for summer, but a hint of early autumn again. And again, I missed out on tanning opportunity. We got to the train track early, husband got busy fast and I was approached to help in the ticket office. Never done it before, they run a tight ship and I had to learn the ropes fast. I must admit, I did short a few people on tickets to begin with, but caught on fast. The people I shorted never came back for their tickets they'd not got - amazing. The rides are really cheap anyway, could be why they didn't notice. People buy a bundle of tickets, or singles - then hand a bundle to the kids and say, "Go have fun!" But it all meant I spent much of the day inside the ticket office. The train husband usually drives never got out onto the track, it needs repairs, so he drove a diesel instead. mother in law & I went for a ride together late in the day, then just as we were heading back to the car, husband drove in with a train load of passengers, then told me to get on again, right behind him (pillion-style). Not so much a bikie moll, more a train tart. It was fun. As we were coming back into the station, a little boy watching called out, "Oh, it's only that yucky diesel!" husband replied, "Yeah, mate, I'd rather be driving a steamer too." Needs must. A busy day, but fun. Selling tickets, handing out the occasional free pass and fridge magnet, answering questions, walking around the birthday parties and making sure the birthday guest of honour had a 'free rides' stamp on his hand - I can understand why the men love doing this. We estimated there had been well over two thousand rides over the day - a lot of people worked hard. It's fun. I hope your Sunday has moments like these too. Marg PS husband says it's 11 pm and time for bed - he says I've earned a good night's rest.
