Train Wreck Treasure

On Wednesday we had a train derailment in the middle of Austin. I'm no fool - Susan and I were up there early Thursday morning, ever so politely asking the Union Pacific cleanup crew if we could pick up the scrap metal that was in the grass by the tracks.

These springs are very heavy, too heavy to bother with in welding shop, but they'll make great bases for my ceramic heads. In the meantime, we have a Spring Garden.
