High heat

Now I notice the welds on EVERYTHING! On Saturday Keith and I took a welding class. It was a lot of fun, we actually got to do 4 different kinds of welding, arc, mig, plasma cutting, and brazing. Our class taught by John Barber, was very thorough, he gave us a great history and health lesson on welding. He taught at his adorable house in the heights decorated with some of his artwork. John and his wife were amazingly interesting, both artists John has worked for the zoo, and museums, scuplting artwork for them, and welding the cages for the dinasour bones at the museum of natrual science! 
Can you tell how excited I am?

John's site If you have a chance to take the class, I recommend it, it was fun, challenging, requires patience and maybe a dust mask!
