Wives Don't Need to Know Everything
Author: TexBob

So I was catching up on some streaming last night when the phone rings at 2230 with news that CP 9772 was leading a northbound
BNSF train out of Alvin, TX, about 35 miles south of me.
My first reaction was to blow it off because it was late and I'm old, but then I remembered YOLO. Typically, I'd tell my wife early in the evening
when I know 
I'm going to flash a train, but she was already asleep, and I sure as hell wasn't going to wake her to tell her that I was leaving.
I quickly gathered what I needed and got on the road to Rosenberg, TX, arriving there a bit after 2300. I noticed a Rosenberg PD SUV
parked across from where I would be setting up my lights on the edge of the road. I felt it was prudent to advise him (not ask for permission)
what I was doing, adding that I knew that he would be wondering "WTF is that fool doing". He laughed and said he was cool with it.

I set up quickly, doing my test shot at 2317. Six minutes later, CP AC4400CW 9772 led the UGATTFL by the south switch of Rosenberg siding.
A quick tear-down and I was back home just before midnight, my wife still soundly asleep and no wiser to my adventure.

By this time you probably have a few crews "jumpy" at whether they will get flashed or not. I do appreciate your dedication.

And when you wife says at the breakfast table:  Honey, I got up to go to the bathroom at 11:30 p.m. and the bed was cold, and you were gone.  SO, what train was up?   (Show her the pic at Rosenberg...............)  And tell her that the PD can verify.

The title of this thread has probably been heard in just about every divorce attorney's office out there.
