Not days..
George's age :-)

Today George turned 62.
That magic age...
for so many things.

He officially can collect
social security..
he gets his first check 9/14.

He is eligible for senior discounts..
especially the Senior Lifetime Park Pass.

So today, we spent the day
in a special way.

We started out with a nice breakfast
at a delightful little deli..

We met our friends, 
Joe and Cheri there,
and then headed
to the

The sole purpose of going
there was because it is a
National Historic Site.
George can get his pass there!

It actually is a terrific train
museum, with a lot of
steam powered locomotives.

We watched a locomotive on
the turntable as well..

We all took a ride on a diesel powered train..
the 'America Freedom Train'.

There were people dressed
in Colonial garb..

and two stops along the way
were at small stations..

It was a fun day!

Especially for the birthday boy :-)
