    I see you like trains. 🙂

    • I like the metal parts of the trains…all the shiny parts. I don’t care about the trains, just the heavy gears and metal steps and doors. The heavy wheels and pistons, the back doors with the little window. That kind of thing. I like the details. Not big on trains at all but love the metal bits that look worn but lasting:)

        That’s interesting Gigi, I like old steam trains. the pure power of the engines is awe inspiring.

      • It is a power thing:) I like how huge the metal pieces are. But I want to take the trains apart and make things out of those pieces:) LOL

        Oh, let’s see how it works and make something else. 😉

      • LOL I can’t help it. I always make something else out of things. I want to take things apart and use all the pieces to make new things. My son-in-law and the kids are always giving me parts of radios, cars, etc., so I can play with all the pieces:) I would like to learn how to weld so I could build big sculptures, or little ones. All this silver pieces on the trains look like works of art to me.

        Do it, get a welder I reckon you’d love it. Nothing metal would be safe but you’d have a great time. 😉

      • Maybe I will:) I think it would be fun and I could make BIG things. I know nothing at all about welding but they probably have classes. I’ll look it up:) Thanks.

        I’m sure there’ll be classes running somewhere. if fire escapes go missing they’ll know where to look for them. 😉

      • LOL I don’t think I can drag them home but perhaps I can weld them where they fall:) Good idea, by the way.

      • laurie27wsmith said:

        You’ll manage somehow. 😉

      • Probably:) We will see:) I’ll dedicate my first fire escape sculpture to you:)

      • laurie27wsmith said:

        Tall, make it tall and erect and tall. 😉

      • OMG…LOLOLOLO you are too funny:) I’ll do my best.

      • laurie27wsmith said:

        Try, that’s all I ask, make it that manly the statue of liberty would swoon if she saw it. 🙂

      • 🙂 I’ll do my best.:)

  2. Trains are fascinating. And so are airplanes…really any huge metal object that people get into and to travel at great speeds LOL
