Today's Thought

There are two ways to get enough;
one is to continue to accumulate more and more.
The other is to desire less.

Here are some more pictures I have taken the last few days.

Of course I did take more pictures than the ones I posted earlier so I like to share these with you as well.

Chassis of a Model Steam Locomotive.  The person making this locomotive makes all his own gears, rods, wheels, cogs and such.  
More detail on the Chassis of the Locomotive
This is just one of the wheels of the locomotive.  Again this wheel was fabricated by the builder of the locomotive using specialized precision equipment and a computer to run the equipment.

This is a picture, painted on the side of a truck, of the model locomotive above.

The truck to transport the locomotive to different displays.

 And now back to something totally different.  Photographs of birds I see on our feeders.  And because we had a very cold night and some snow they all showed up during the day to get some much needed food.

Male Pine Grosbeaks
Male Pine Grosbeak and male Red Poll.
 Well this is it for today.  Tomorrow is another day with new things to photograph.
