The Man Date

When Macey was back in Chattanooga a couple of weeks months ago, we reclaimed some quality time together we both had missed. One moment, a precious hour, of that was lunch. We went to a downtown Thai restaurant. We both had Thai iced tea and something spicy. We talked. It was a man date. I did the same type thing with my younger bro over Christmas.

If you don’t know, now you know. I’m just that secure.

Tennessee Valley Railroad

For staff appreciation day, the people who don’t bill hours at my firm were treated with a train ride & luncheon at the Tennessee Valley Railroad.

As a side note, I need to start an online list of places to go on a date in Chattanooga. Not that I went on many dates. I’m just enough of a nerd to have planned them out. That said, I am married now, so there’s something to this.

The point is, the Tennessee Valley Railroad is a great place to go on a date. Trains are romantic.

I also fell in love while at the train depot.

She’s a 1919 passenger engine, Made by Montreal Locomotive Works. Entirely unlike my wife, she’s 30 feet tall, black, made out of steel, and runs on steam. Nice lines, though.

I’ve lost control of this post entirely.

The Times Free Press randomly has this cool photo-movie thing about the TVR.

I won two free tickets for another ride as a door prize, and there’s definite plans to use them on a date of my own. With my wife. On a train. Choo-choo!
