He did very nice work.
But I think he's a bit crazy.
I've been on the "old time" street at the Museum of Science and
Industry. It's really neat.
But a basement isn't a museum.
When he kicks off, within a year or two somebody will tear it all out
for the dumpster.
With his skill he could have made fine furniture to give to family or
That would be a long-lasting legacy.
But whatever makes him happy, I guess.
His money, his time.
I've been to the Museum of Science and Industry since I was a kid and
seen the display there many times. This is a nice story of a kind
retired engineer man and an incredibly patient sweet wife. I guess
you can take the man out of the engineering department but you cant
take the engineering dept out of the man. He aint no "sad bastard" as
some boorish person has called him here, he's the uncle every family
seems to have somewhere, with a wife that gets used to saying "he's
putzing in his workshop"... People who use words like "boring and
drivellish" are usually prone to having no imagination. This guy is
up there with Walt Disney in the imagination department, I'd like to
hang out in the shop with him for a while.
I was in a similar place once but it was an older town, sort of the wild
west with wooden sidewalks. It was built inside an old factory and just
an antique collectors way of displaying his antiques. He ended up
selling all the antiques and then collected fine art. In the same
building was a climate controlled airtight room with boring paintings on
the walls like an art museum. I liked the old town better.
