Saturday Photo Hunt:Travel

We love Saturday Photo Hunt click
here for a list of words
Today's word is....
T R A V E L

This is a passenger train.  Every Saturday my peeps see it from Seaboard Cafe which sits right by the tracks.


It has an engine on the front and the back.  WHY? because this way it doesn't have to turn around...(pardon the blurry photo)
 This train TRAVELS from Raleigh to Charlotte and back every day

Mom took photos of the passenger cars...but they were  blurry too.  The names on the cars all describe something native to NC, Sweet Potato, Plott Hound,(state dog)Core Sound, Scotch Bonnet (a sea shell), Long Leaf Pine, Cardinal (state bird) and Dogwood (state flower)
It is named after the Seaboard railroad that was located here years ago.
That is Dad's arm...
Seaboard Cafe has outside and inside dining and pups are welcomed to dine in the outside area.

  My peeps have been having lunch here nearly every Saturday for the last 20 years. The food is delicious....
This is their lunch from Saturday 9/24/16
Mom had pistachio chicken salad and yogurt fruit salad
Dad had old fashion chicken salad sandwich, on toasted wheat bread 
 They shared a cranberry and walnut  cookie.....
Rick the owner and his staff are very friendly and they all seem like family to the peeps.

The scenery is fantastic if you are a train brain like my Dad!! CSX freight train is on it's way to pick up freight to travel to who knows where.  It also passes by on these tracks during lunch

Seaboard Cafe sits in the middle of their favorite garden and gift shop Logan's Trading Company. 

Some day very soon, my peeps plan to Travel from Raleigh via car to the Cary Depot.  Where they will hop on the Piedmont to travel to Burlington, NC.
If you promise not to laugh,  I'll tell you why!!
Dad's Train buddies told him there is a fantastic Hot Dog
joint in Burlington (50 miles from Cary).  It is very near the train station.  You can hop off eat lunch then an hour later catch the train back to the Cary Depot.  I know crazy right but I hear that is what retirees do!!
No worries there will be photos to document this momentous
travel!!
Hugs Madi 
PS I won't be going

Tuesday Tour: Blog office

We'll friends it looks like we are about to have our 2nd Tuesday Tour.
I must admit I have baffled Mom about something. 
I used to love to sit on the old carpet in my blog office while basking in the sun puddles.

I love sitting on the hardwood floors downstairs in my dining room.
This is just one of the gazillion pics of me sitting on the dining room hardwood.


I really like sitting around on the new carpet too


For some reason unbeknownst to me, Mom or Dad
I will not place my diva self directly on the new floor in my blog office.
I will walk in the office.  I will sit in my tunnel.
Since the new flooring has been installed, I will sit just outside the office on the carpet.
Mom remembered she had a sample of the new carpet so she 
brought it into the blog office.  Now I will sit in there!!
Just not on the Armstrong wood like vinyl flooring.  Mom says it feels just like
hardwood and is not cold. She is clueless as to why I won't sit on it!
I won't even sit on the new flooring when my sun puddle is in there!!
So there you have folks Tour 2 is over nuttin' else in my blog office is new...just the floor.
If anyone has any ideas as to why I won't sit on the floor, you can leave them in the comments.

From atop an itty bitty sample of new carpet in my blog office it is
Madi signing off!!
PS mom says to tell you this new flooring is indestructible and easy peasy to clean it is also in 
Dad's train room.

Madi Moon Fog

The fog comes 
on little cat feet. 

It sits looking 
over harbor and city 
on silent haunches 
and then moves on.

Don't you just love that poem!!  We do!!
For those who have never been in a room as a cat enters...we are very very quiet
UNLESS we (me) are hungry and someone (TOGM) has not prepared our food.
PS crazy mom says the title of the post sounds like an Native American Indian Name
