Monkey and the Engineer

Updated: Oct 18

ALL ABOARD...for the Promised Land...where the music of the Grateful Dead plays all the time...right on time...and "you don't need no baggage you just climb on board..."


This is a hastily drafted post as the Half Step train is due at the Malverne LIRR station at 2:00 PM. That said, I'll be adding to it after today's show departs the station...


See, I wanted to make a QR code for this post for the engineer's hat I made (also hastily)...



Later, at the Malverne Fall Street Festival with my friend Brian...I'm so glad the monkey held on for this photo...Otherwise, we'd have to let the viewers decide who was the monkey...




"Hey, tOM, watch your speed!"
