Wed., April 25, 2007 – Reading stories to my three boys, now 15, 13 and 10, one of their favorites was the story about “the little train that could.” As the story goes, the little train chugged up the steep hill, saying, “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can,” until he crests the hill in a victorious moment.
I couldn’t help but be reminded of that story when I saw Rick’s little warrior – a Samurai warrior no less….
Then of course, that kinda reminded me of taking a standard Mini with an 850cc up the Conejo Grade on my way home. I’m told it’s one of the steepest freeway grades in the state.
While an 850cc Mini will cruise at freeway speeds on the flats, you’ll be over in the truck lanes on your way up that grade. All the while, your little Mini is saying, I think I can, I think I can – in a British accent, of course…
