First day on the train has been uneventful. Marilyn and Karen were there to see me off. My phone was burning up with texts. I appreciate all the well-wishes. This is the beginning of an amazing journey. People on the train are nice. We’re picking up passengers in Kansas City right now and the train will fill up with passengers to Chicago. Now I need to figure out how to reset the time on my watch…too many time changes coming up. Enjoy the gift of your life today.
