something from childhood
as a kid i really wanted a model train. however, my dad thought they were dumb because the did nothing but go around in a circle. that never diminished my desired to build one. in my 20’s i dumped about $200 into some train stuff only to box it up and got rid of it because i didn’t have the time to do anything about it.
today that all changed. i joined a model railroad club and started working on a layout. on a table in the basement i have found a few of my modeling supplies from about age 12 and got myself my first train car. i also built a 2′ x 4′ module that i can add some things to that will connect with the modules from the other guys in the railroad club.
the more i write the more it sounds really kind of juvenile, but hey, it’s me! everyone should have a hobby and so this is becoming mine. i’m kind of excited to start building stuff and seeing what it turns out like. i know it’s a bit nerdy, but at least it’s not nearly as dorky as scrapbooking! ; )
