Arriving at Nerdville

The other day I reached into a jacket pocket and pulled out a USB cord that confirmed one of my biggest fears: I have become a nerd. And yes, there were two ink pens in the unprotected breast pocket of the starched white shirt I was wearing at the time.

There is no dodging this attribute because I am about to learn how to operate a vintage trolley, one not too different than Line 69 to Kennywood. That restored streetcar is shown in the above photo taken at the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum in Chartiers Township, Pa., where these driving lessons are offered.

Step aboard.
