“I gotta go…

my engineer thinks he saw a dead body and we have to check it out. I will talk to you later.” Click.

Now that is a snippet I haven’t heard in a long time.

Okay…probably never.

My brother-in-law works for a national railroad and he called me this morning, prior to my getting on the commuter train out in the suburbs, to let me know that he was in a train engine, sitting outside of Chicago and when I pass by the rail yard....I should be able to see him.

So after giving him the approximate time for me to be passing by and which car of the train I was sitting in....my train departed for the city.

It turned out that our view of each other was blocked by some container cars sitting in between our trains...so it wasn’t until my train passed his parked freighter that I was able to see him waving from its cab.

I immediately called his cell and that is when he said “I gotta go....”

I will keep you posted as to what they end up finding…..in the meantime enjoy the weekend and be safe...I wouldn't want you to end up being Susan's Snippet's blog fodder.

Um, yikes. Let us know. My friend thought he saw a dead body one time, but it was really just a pot head laying down in the woods.

Hope he just saw a pot head taking a rest.
