Where Did You Find Those?

Today my eldest son came running through the house shouting"I found Daddy's glasses”. And sure enough he had my glasses and their case in ...

American Steam Rail

Today we visited the Essex Steam Railway beside the Connecticut River. It was interesting to see the difference between the railway here and comparing it with the trains back home.
