    Here are some pictures of welders I thought others might find interesting.

          Hey thanks for the cool link! If you (or anyone else) runs across any good images of Wendy the Welder -- sister to Rosie the Riveter, who for some reason became more popular, please post it.

            Whats really funny, is if you didnt know the date of the pictures, you would think some of them pics were taken just yesterday! About the only thing that has changed, is the welding machines.

                      Got a new computer... playing with the photo editing software. I take it you liked the old one?

                        Sounds like this could be a loaded question,not sure how to answer.
                        OK I thought it was catchy(?).
