Thank you for Lovett Smith and his beautiful family. I am forever a better person for having met such a wonderful family. The trip into Chicago was amazing. We came in while a Sox game was starting. Several people on the car considered hoping off the slow ish moving train car to catch the game, but that would be illegal. So no one did that.
"To dine while traveling on a train car adds flavor to the dish, a depth to taste, a crystal clear experience." Me.
Thank you.
