We haven't thought about railroad ties since 1980 when our mom built raised bed landscaping in our backyard [we also had giant orange and brown flowered wallpaper but have since dealt with that in therapy]. When we glanced through a new catalog that came through the mail this week called Viva Terra [eco living style] we had Rod Stewart and Fleetwood Mac flashbacks but realized it's not so bad afterall and we actually kind of [gasp] like it.
We're still not sure where railroad ties come from...are they dismanteling that many RR's? or is it a replacment situation? Or the stork?... Mom, where do railroad ties come from? oops... wrong conversation.
