My folks had a cherished toy poodle that managed to escape out the door. I had been visiting after work and was still in my Army uniform. On my way home, as I crossed a RR crossing, I thought I saw her on the RRs right of way. I parked my car and headed down the tracks calling her name. “Here Chu Chu. Come here Chu Chu!” I looked back to see my wife doubled over in laughter. I realized, here was a member of the Armed Forces, in uniform, running down the tracks yelling at the top of his lungs, Here Choo Choo. The dog would not be found that night.
Now that’s funny, I don’t care who you are!!!
That’s a good story and it reminds me of the Bugs Bunny episode where he tells the dog, “If your following train tracks you must be trying to catch a train.”
