Big Windy, I head on back to track down Trouble in Stumptown while
Dolly-girl heads east on the Lakeshore Limited to visit the Bianchi family.
Me-oh-my, I miss that wave already!

Me and Dolly-girl had a good visit in the Twin Chill which turned out to be feeling either the effects of global warming or the side effects of the Devil's Team -- the Dreaded Yankees -- in town for a series. Either way, it was hotter than mock duck on a charcoal grill. Sure glad when we found a bar with a dramatic display of Grain Belt Premium. Stay tuned for more of our adventures including a review of the famous Nye's Polonaise Room!

chicken and biscuit dinners to the train passengers. Not any more. But
there's an old Great Northern locomotive here
And a "second generation hobo with a cell phone and a few bucks" got off
the train. He lives in Havre. Good place if you like trains ...
Dolly-girl and me stepped out to exercise shank's mare. Why I looked for Mr

some complimentary champagne. What's wrong with train travel. Nothin'
Anthony Kay and Kay Anthony. "Union Station and step on it!". He did. We
checked into the Metropolitan Lounge and relaxed with a cuppa. Not exactly
what I was looking for -- I had a hankering to drown a couple olives at
Wilf's but they don't open until 15 minutes after #28 heads west. Poor
planning on their part I'd say ...
We'll be keeping you posted as #28 heads for the Tri-Cities, Spokane, Whitefish, Cut Bank, Havre, Minot, Rugby, Grand Forks, Detroit Lakes, and on into St. Paul. I'll be keeping my eyes out for Trouble on board while Dolly-girl scribbles in her book and shoots me look through the wave...
