A few weeks ago Ted took his son to the Hall of Flame Fire Museum in Phoenix, AZ. While this may seem to be an overtly male type excursion, after analyzing the photos of their trip I found objects of delicate beauty. Yes, at the fire fighters museum. Now this may be due to the fact that when you take away the functionality and element of danger associated with these objects, many of these fire apparatus are really just vintage pieces designed and built during a time when people took pride in creating beautiful things. In fact the Hotchkiss carriage was devoid of all firefighting function and was actually just built to be beautiful and to be pulled around by firefighters during parades. Like the Homecoming queen. So, next time the guys want to check out the local baseball museum or swamp cooler museum, go with, as you never know what may inspire you.
