Crossing railroad tracks is always dangerous. The endless stream of black coal cars, red cattle cars and bland box cars was mind-numbing … Boring! So boring, passenger-car drivers would day-dream or even doze off waiting for the caboose to pass. The last car of a train is always the caboose. Always!

This is my “caboose” post — the last post of “Larry’s Blog”, which started in 2008. After 1,245 posts I hate to think about how many people dozed off waiting for this caboose.

Bonus: Goodbye, Vietnam! That’s right, I’m history, I’m outta here, I got the lucky ticket home, baby.
Good Morning Vietnam
