Take A Ride on the Reading Railroad!
Having returned from Optometry’s Meeting® in Philadelphia, I revitalized my appreciation of the processes that make the AOA work. Philadelphia is a very historical city, proclaiming the birth of our nation. As with any history, there is always something new to learn.
I always enjoyed playing the fun game of Monopoly with siblings or friends as a kid. Of course, the game often came to a cruel, agonizing end when your token lands on Marvin Gardens with a hotel. As I found out while in Philadelphia, the property in Monopoly was named after properties in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The railroads, though, were based out of Philadelphia. And while spelled Reading Railroad, it is pronounced “Redding.” Our PCO grads probably already knew that one.
