This is a Huge Hug and a Shout Out to my friend Suttonhoo over at Detritus, and to The World's Best Mechanical Engineer, a dear friend I've never met.
It all started with me getting winded trying to keep up with my son's long list of questions about how the doors work on the Max Train. I jokingly suggested to Suttonhoo that I'd love to direct some of those questions to TWBME. She was seeing him in the next couple days, so she asked if he'd be willing to answer a few questions from a six year old, and he gamely said "Yes!"
I posted about this a few days ago, but he has steadily been supplying the most amazing, innovative, exciting and best of all UNDERSTANDABLE answers to Joe-Henry's questions about the way things work. Of course, it's a given that Joe-Henry would understand them, I'm talking about understandable to ME. He makes Mechanical Engineering thrilling. And funny.
Really, truly, you need to check it out. The whole series is right here.
Thanks again to The World's Best Mechanical Engineer and the Fabulous Ms. Suttonhoo.
