I consider My Dad to be my Hero, even though he embarrasses me and my family in public. I love my Dad because he puts my family first before He does anything for himself. When I was 3 weeks old(I did not remember this like most people do about their childhood) I rode on my Dad's 1 1/2 inch scale steam engine as he was holding on to me. The train gene did not skip a generation as my Dad and I have so much trains that my mom complains that we need to stop buying stuff. The Greatest lesson about life I learned from my Dad is regarding trains and his quote that i will live by as i continue my hobby of trains is "to go to school, get a good job and Buy trains."
