The Love Spoons will wait

I decided to let the Letter Love Spoons wait for another day and introduce you to my guys on a handcar. This one started when I found this postal first day cover, commemorating the development of the railroad handcar. It seemed like a natural for a carving so here it is. The title: "Faster! The 5:14 is on THIS track!" implies that the guys may have bitten off more than they can chew. Lester, the tall guy (he looks like a Lester, don't you think?), and Bob, the little guy with the patched pants, have just discovered that what appeared to be an empty track at the beginning of their journey is now anything but empty. You can see that the original artwork shows up as a poster on the fence clearly marked "Post no bills". So who reads signs? On this last picture you can clearly see the tools of their trade, a lantern, a sledge hammer and, of course, Lester's lunchbox. There is a pry bar there somewhere, too, but I guess you can't see it. That's it for today. Until next time, Keep makin' chips!
