A “Crummy” is Railroad slang for a Caboose and that is what I got as a gift on October 17th from a good friend of mine at the office. Steve knows that I am into trains and he decided to pull an office prank on me by taking an old cardboard box from his new lawnmower and some scrap-wood and build a caboose. He then hauled it to the office along with tools to make final adjustments and hook it up to my hitch that is an imitation railroad coupler. Once he had it attached he let the rest of the office in on it and then sprung it on me.
What a laugh! I truly enjoyed it and would pack it up inside the 4×4 and take it home to get it set back up in the driveway before Lisa knew I was home. When she saw it she started laughing wondering where the heck I got it at. She insisted on taking a photo of me with my new train car and she says we should at least keep it until X-Mas to put out with the rest of the display.
So, from Steve’s garage to mine the Caboose goes. Thanks Steve; it brought a smile and a fun laugh!!!!!!!
My new Yellow Crummy all hitched up and ready to head down the Right-of-Way behind our 4×4…
