  3. Well if it takes him a long time to work on the trains it sure should keep him out of trouble. Those trains look real cool.

  14. Train brain, hahhah. What a great work you dad does. That takes skill. I did get lost going past your kitchen (yummy smells) but good thing you have that wonderful tail, I caught up right away. Do you ever help your dad with the trains? I would like that, especially if I could wear a train hat. I could even make the toot toot sound for the train. Just give me some broccoli first.
    Blessings,

  30. Thank you, Madi, for showing us what your Dad builds!
    He must have good eye sight to do that metal work on his trains!
    They do become quite beautiful pieces after his transformation!
