After a week long look at the story of a man workin' himself to death, I'm ready for the weekend and a little R&R (Rum & Rompin').
The photo above is a beautiful view of the Ellicott City Station along the B&O Railroad's Old Main Line. It was the first commercial railroad in the United States, built between 1828 and 1835, and is still in use today. Ellicott City is just up the road from where I was raised. As a school kid I walked along these tracks to meet up with friends and get to our favorite fishing holes.
