Snapshots in Time: “Generations”

images7

 

We knew the memories we were creating together would last a lifetime. These are the “snapshots in time” we hold so dear. We discussed many times during the course of our “journey” how they would serve as a basis for the next generation to create memories of their own. Samy and I vowed to do our best to make that happen. This is the reason that one generation should stand on the shoulders of the one preceding it. It makes possible that which we previously thought was not!

I could not help but remember that the hands holding two by four lumber that day, were those that belonged to an infant who not that long ago, clasped his tiny hand around my finger for the first time and changed my life forever!

Snapshots in Time: Model Railroading…..Hobby or Opportunity?

Any opportunity that allows you to work with someone you love on a project that fascinates you both is a golden one. I don’t know of anyone who can pass by a model train layout without stopping to admire it. Lets face it, there is something about a model railroad that mesmerizes us all. It is a “hobby” that is multigenerational and age is not a limiting factor. Whether you are 5 or 75 your interest in the trains and scenery does not diminish. The sense of wonder that young people bring to the table is augmented by the skill and experience of Dad or Grandpa. When fathers and sons get together with Grandpa the benefits and fun increase exponentially. Our daughters and granddaughters should know that this is not a hobby for “men only.” You have the same skills and will be pleasantly surprised that when it comes to scale model buildings you will enjoy it as much as you would furnishing your dollhouses.  My grandson and I had no prior experience before beginning our layout, just a desire to do something special together. And “Special” it was!

Snapshots in Time: Delorean, Time Machine, or Flux Capacitor?

                                                                                        TIME MACHINE

                                                                                         

DELOREAN                                                                                                  Delorean

In Snapshots in Time: The S&G Railroad by Robert Michaels, Samy and his grandfather discuss just that. Since they did not have a plutonium-powered DeLorean or a flux capacitor, they decided they just weren’t necessary. They were determined to go back in history through one of their now-famous expeditions. This Grandson and Grandfather chose another vehicle for their journey through time. We hope more of you will join us on our adventure now that we are available on Kindle as well as paperback. Our journey spans almost 200 years and is a compilation of experiences and memories we have created together to make this true story enjoyable, heartwarming and one we will never forget.

It is a “must read” for all grandchildren, parents and grandparents!

FLUX CAPACITOR
