Just six days from now, I’ll be heading down the CSX railroad tracks helping Santa and the elves on the Santa Train distribute 15 tons of gifts to children along the 110-mile route. I’ve already started packing my bags!
I received a poster about the trip, and thought I’d just put that up here for all of you. It gives the schedule, and has a few pictures of the train on previous trips. And, as you can see, there’s Wynonna – this year’s celebrity guest on the train. I’m very excited about having the opportunity to be a part of this annual event. I hope anyone in the Kingsport area will come out for the parade at 3:15 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 21, too.
A few days ago, I put up a video of the 2008 Santa Train, with special guest Kathy Mattea. This morning, I have one of the 2007 train, when Patty Loveless went along to help distribute the toys and candy to the children. Its really wonderful that so many children get presents, because so many others are willing to give their time, money and energy to make it all possible.
I hope you all have a great Sunday. I’ll talk to you all soon. I have e-mail to answer this evening, so hopefully I’ll get you all answered before I call it a day! Write when you have a chance.
