You know who they are if you have ’em. Those folks who have been tight with you for years and years through thick and especially thin times.
One of those many good bros. for me is also an ol’ Wisconsin gent like myself. We love to chat and occasionally reminisce about life growing up in a small town on a lake, walking the train tracks with a buddy and things related to Milwaukee and other various and sundry things about the Badger State.
For some years we have served together in inner-city Chicago but indeed chat from time to time about old Wisc. days and traditions. Somehow, quite a few years ago we started up a little tradition of swapping 1 somewhat funny/somewhat serious gift related to all this each Christmas.
If you know me well you know I’m a blues singer/player and also LOVE trains, old and new and travel on ’em when I can. And have a soft heart for The Milwaukee Road (long gone now…) which I rode now and then and which I do miss.
This year look what he gifted me with! SO cool!
And hey… why not add a tune I wrote and recorded w. Ed and Roy down in Misourri?
Here’s a live version of Runaway Train from a show in Colorado- hope you’re having a sweet Christmas holiday!
Big Thanks to my bro Randy in Colo. for the GKB vid clip 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_17oSb8xUtw
