    I volunteered at the tram museum today. I usually go only on saturdays, but since the season starts in four weeks and there is a lot to be finished before that time, I started to go on wednesdays as well. Done some painting and cleaned some glass showcases. And was told that I will be allowed to follow a steam engine engineer course! It will start by end of March and will last until May or something thereabouts. Then I will be able to start as fireman on the engine and eventually (after theoretical and practical tests) I will be able to ride the trams myself! Yeey!

    This is one of the locs and two of the carriages (there are more 'modern' locs and carriages as well):

    I found a 1940s rocket in my shave drawer today! I didn't know I had one of these kicking around! Needless to say I'm pretty happy! ;)

    A very sad day in our house. Our beautiful dog Maggie of 15 years took a turn for the worse tonight and we had her put down. :sad023:
    RIP Maggie..

    So sorry to hear that. That is the hardest things I have ever had to do is put my dogs down. It never gets easier. But then I think about all of they unconditional love they give the family and it makes me feel better.

    My thoughts are with you and your family tonight.

    So sorry, Kerry :( That hurts ... we dread the day one of our four-legged friends will leave us - they're both 15 now as well.

    Thank you so much. You are so right about the unconditional love! That unconditional love made our decision easier because we didn't want her to suffer.

    A pet does become part of the family. Sorry for your loss. Focus on the joy Maggie brought. In time it will be the positives you will remember her by.
