About This Image
Have you ever been walking along a railroad track and found some glass balls? These balls are the raw materials used in the making of fiberglass. They were carried in open box cars, so they tend to bounce out. When the freight car reaches the plant, the balls are unloaded then melted. Making the glass into balls made it easy to load and unload the glass.
So for my photo I set one of the (glass balls) on the edge of my birdbath and the sun was hitting it just right to make the sun flare look on the top. On our trips from Arizona to Barstow California we would always stop for a break along the tracks and pick up some of the balls. The grandkids like playing with them so now they are all around the outside of our house and in my shop, there everywhere LOL.. The glass balls are a little larger than the large marbles that we use to call shooters. The glass balls are roughly made and not perfectly round or smooth.
