Tuesday - January 22, 1974
First Line After Theme Ends
Putting a penny on the RR track, trying to out flank the trains back in Indiana.
Shep reads an article about an underground fire that has been finally put out after 40 years.
He goes on to tell about growing up as a kid exploring swamps and building caves. He describes an underground fire that mysteriously appears in a vacant lot down the street. Little wifts of smoke rising from the ground. It burned for years until one Sarturday afternoon during late winter there was a tremor followed by a mushroom shaped cloud. The entire field had been replaced by a hole.
