I Love Trains
I was about 7 when my Pop took me down to the basement early Christmas morning to show me the brand new Lionel electric train set that Santa had supposedly left for me. It was complete with Plaster of Paris mountains and tunnels that my Pop made. He also constructed small towns and villages with traffic cops and mailmen and lots of townspeople that he hand painted all by himself. I don't know how he found the time since he always worked two jobs, sometimes working through the night. I'm still amazed at how he kept this clandestine project from us, but he did.
