View From My Window


My students were deep into an interesting discussion about learning strategies, learning experiences, and teachers, when I spotted something outside my window.  Just like when I pass a construction site, there is something that made it hard to look away.

This was a pretty fascinating piece of machinery.  In all honesty, this would make a great model kit.  I would love it if someone would put this out in 1:24 scale.  That would be awesome and I can already picture the weathering possibilities.

This piece of construction equipment takes me back to my sandbox days.  Those were the days in which all the kids around the sandbox were the foremen of  a vast construction project.  I didn’t have a truck like the one above, but I had some pretty good Tonka Trucks.

Getting a chance to embrace that little boy in a gigantic psychic hug is Today’s Perfect Moment.

About Anthony

I am: equal parts rebel, romantic and shockingly average Joe. a writer trapped inside of an ESL teacher's body. an introverted attention seeker. a teacher who hopes one day to be called "Captain, my Captain." an intellectual who can do some very dumb things. a person whose Japan experience, despite being so long ago, still exerts a strong influence upon him. a lover of books, music, beer, hockey and Pizza.

    We built a swimming pool in the sandrock in the basement and made a fire to dry it out. They had to call the fire department.

    Flashbacks to a long ago Christmas morning. I remember opening a package to something like this. I remember it was metal. Oh, those were fun days.
