Caitlyn enjoys a trip with me to see what I do. She has been to my office twice and is still convinced I don’t do anything (which is partially true). One fine Saturday morning she decided to come along to Reefsteamers in Germiston to take a look at the steam engines there. The problem is, when you are 23 inches tall, most things look big, when you are up against a steam engine you are positively dwarfed.
“Lyndie Lou is great, but I feel positively small next to her.”
“Cait, I hate to say this but you are only 23 inches tall.”
“Yeh yeh, rub it in. One day I will have a spurt of growth and be 23.5 inches!”
“Somehow I don’t see that unless you get big shoes. Come along, lets go visit Janine and Elize.”
“Can I drive? huh? huh? huh?”
“I don’t think so, you have to start at the bottom.”
“I am 23 inches from the bottom already.”
“Not like that, you have to learn to be a fireman, and then you can think about it. It’s a lot of hard work and responsibility.”
And then it was time to head off for home.
“Caitlyn, you are going to need a scrub when we get home.”
“Just you look in the mirror and you will see why!”
And don’t forget to support Reefsteamers so that we can keep these beauties on the rails in South Africa.
