It looks like it’s on the tracks. It must be summertime, headed into fall. The grass is dried up but the trees still have plenty of green. The girl has on a sundress and something that is barely shoes. She might be 12 or 13 or perhaps older. The young man is building up his courage to approach her.
The girl’s name is Ronnie. The young man’s name is Sam.
Mary Lou: My grandfather lived about a half block from the railroad. We used to put a dime on the track. We lived near the railroad and we’d know when to expect the train. We would put a dime on the track and pick it up flattened after the train passed by.
Polly: We walked the railroad tracks to school. It took a long time. We left home in the dark. We lived out in the country.
Jim: My wife and I were going to a place. We thought it was pretty great. In that area there was a lot of rock. That is in my mind because I have seen it.
Jane: We never told anybody, but we played on the tracks.
Evelyn: We took them to get to the country store.
Veronica: I never walked on the railroad tracks but I know the song: “I’ve been working on the railroad”. (We sang the song.)
Bill: It’s four feet between the rails – a municipal kind of set up. One uses the railroad to get from point A to point B.
She has a big smile on her face. I’m puzzled by the time sequence. Perhaps they set up the meeting. Sam said, I’ll see you tomorrow half way down the railroad tracks.
Sam is going to catch up with Ronnie and knock her off her feet!
No fake flowers here. These are hand picked wild flowers. He is trying to impress Ronnie. We think he will get the job done!
Here is one little problem. You can’t see Sam’s face.
He is going to get rid of the flowers and give them to Ronnie. She will say “thank you”. Then they will kiss.
