Thoroughly Poetic Pictorial Thursday

Today we join Two  SPOILED CAT 
Angel Sammy and Teddy for their poetic pictorial poem.

Train Brain:  Ode to Dad
By Madi and Mom
Trains of all sizes, shapes and colors are Dad's thing.
His hobby though is small trains.
Tools of his trade can be found 
here and there and all around.
What they do ....  I have no clue.
But that is ok 'cause Dad DO.
He works magic
You see he is an O scale model train man with a plan.
The pieces are so tiny he needs a 
high power lamp, itty bitty screw drivers 
and lots of clamps

Once I even saw him with a saw.

He orders brass shells,
carefully adds details 
he solders on parts and pieces
making them exact replicas 
of big trains.

I must confess his train room can be a mess
We don't touch any piles because it might cause him stress.
 I know MY DAD IS A GENIUS at this because mom calls him
a Train Brain. 


  1. My human always wanted to have model trains... although it is probably a little late for her to get started now!

  2. Hari OM
    I'm impressed, Madi. With the trains. Your ode to them also, but particularly with the trains!!! &*> Hugs and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. oh I guessed it that was the bestest prompt for an ode to your daddy...and I always remember how your dad included the Diva in his hobby with using a whisker of you...that's sweet, isn't it?...and a brilliant idea!

  4. What a great poem and we just KNEW that you'd get your Dad's "habit" involved with your poem. It's a fabulous poem and the photos are very cool. My Dad studied them as he's not got a train setup but he still has his trains from a bazillion years ago when he was also a "train brain"!

    Well done Madi..
    Love, Teddy

  5. Great poem, Madi! Your dad's trains are beautiful and works of art!

  6. That truly is a wonderful poem and it is so good to see the trains again. That must be so much fun for the Dad to play with the trains. You all have a fantastic day.

  7. i am so glad you showed us The Room and the Tools and the Process. I knew your mom called him train brain but did not realize he has a train room and lots of toys. i wish hubby had a hobby to do when weather is bad, he plays with planes not trains but only if the wind is not blowing to hard. love the gold train. wish you were here to ride the train next week end, the Hole in the head gang will be attacking the steam engine...

  8. That train photo was purrfect for you sweet Madi!

  9. Well every man has to have one room for his junk errrrrrr hobby.
