We were headed somewhere very cool – the Travel Town Museum in Griffith Park; a neat little place where you can learn about the history of LA and its roots in the railroad system, allowing you to see and read about some old locomotives, and of course, take a little miniature train ride around the premises!
They knew a celebrity was coming to visit… but what they didn’t know was that I was already a self-proclaimed train conductor!
And I have a keen eye for detail.
For one thing, I noticed that the railroad workers were digging in all the wrong places, so I hopped over the tracks to go show them how it’s done.
Without even asking, I joined in the work crew, setting a sharp example as to where we need be diggin’.
Can you believe these tracks are some hundred years old?! I’m digging up pieces of history!
They all stopped to watch me. I like to think that they were keenly observing my example, but I’m sure they were just staring dumbfoundedly at my muscles, glistening in my own
When we got the tracks patched up, I was finally confident enough to commence my train ride with the guests. Allllll aboard!
