So I thought I'd share some pictures which are vaguely connected to Miss Piggy, Goofy and Thomas.
A Blue train. It's nothing like Thomas but it's still an impressive train. Its the Mallard, designed by Sir Nigel Gresley. It set the world speed record for steam locomotives back in July 1938 with a speed of 125mph.
A porcelain piggy to represent Miss Piggy.
Noddy. A fictional character who is always getting into trouble, a bit like Goofy. Well, I did say the links were a bit vague.
Anyway, have you ever wondered why they are called thimbles? No? Originally, way back when they first came into use, thimbles were designed to be worn on the thumb. They have always had a slightly bell like shape so were called thumb-bells. Over time this has become thimble.
Thanks for stopping by. Let me know you called by leaving a comment.
Bye for now.
