Coming back to life !!! Video added

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

For over forty years, she stood outside the Funhouse at a large amusement park in Dartmouth. Massachusetts, named Lincoln Park. She'd rock forward and backward, always laughing through the magic of a phonograph player that played the same scratchy record over and over. The rides stopped in the 1980's, and "Laughing Sal" found herself dusty, rusty, and life-less.

I found the frame and mechanism in a warehouse in New Bedford, and put it on my "to-do" list to bring her back. Well, she didn't come back as a woman, but...



Some people believe that after death we come back as another being. Next week she makes her first public appearance as a cow, at the Westport Fair.

San Francisco has a Laughing Sal...really annoying laugh after a while, though. So what will the cow say?!

Bob, I had wondered why you have been away from the forum for awhile. This explains everything, it is so...ummm...let's see...what is a good word here? Oh yeah...You...it is so you to do something like this.

It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

I know that's the Sal from San Francisco that lives on, on the Internet, but the one we had didn't look like that. From my memory, and from the framework, ours was, let's see, we have to be PC, we'll say "not that thin". :lol:

I think they have re-recorded the laugh track, because it doesn't sounds as harsh and obnoxious as I remember!!

BTW, if anyone is ever in San Francisco, try to visit that little museum. They have spectacular mechanical machines there. Mostly large music boxes and such, with so many instruments...fantastic for the mechanically inclined!!! I loved to watch all the mechanisms! Talk about "Rube Goldberg" heaven!! :lol:

That is way too cool! By the way, I noticed you got a new hat to wear in your avatar.

You're right Ed, but I didn't expect you to buy a hat like that !
