Sent off some train postcards


I keep having issues with the mobile version of Blogger, hence the tardy post. The original attempt is stuck in limbo on my phone, claiming it is publishing so that I can't cancel, edit or repost. It just sits there on the posts list, mocking me.

Time to haul out the typewriter 3/365
