During our family vacation, mom told us one of the things we would do while in San Francisco is take the trolley car to go shopping. All of us children were looking forward to that. We had seen pictures of the trolley and thought it would be a lot of fun.
When we got there, mom bought all the tickets and lined us up to board. My brother and I started play fighting which made mom mad. We were told we would have to stay at the hotel while she and the girls went shopping.
Bobby and I went back to the hotel to our room and decided to spend the afternoon watching cartoons. When we turned on the television it informed us that we had to put money in in order to get any programs. Drats! We couldn't watch the television.
It was a boring afternoon for me and Bobby. We ended up falling asleep and dreamed of riding the trolley.
