Hidden History #23 – The Shovel

The cap, the bandana and the shovel.

The cap, the bandana and the shovel.  All things a railroad worker might have used.

Typical railroad decor with hidden history.  The shovel actually belonged to my grandson.  My husband bought it for him as a small child to work alongside him on jobs, making him feel an integral part of the project.

My grandson is now over 6 ft tall so the shovel is far too “small”, but it holds a “large” piece of our heart.

Random me:  I remember helping me dad paint our house as a teenager, realizing I had no idea how to paint!

  2. Donna, your use of personal history to tell a detailed story is amazing. Even more amazing is that you are willing to do it full well that 99.9% of your customers won’t make the connection. Bravo.

  3. Time for a new post. Please. 🙂

    • You are so nice 🙂 Coming soon. Working vigorously on a new Flanagin’s Fairy Costume. Deadline 9/8/12. The “parade” wings are testing my “engineering” skills. Going for “wow”.

      • Bet it will be Fantasmic!

      • Thanks.
