Big Bad Bertha

This time it's true love!

Sure, there have been others-
There was the spoker 'D'.
There was the Lindeman.
And of course the Waterloo Boy.
Not to mention that cute little '62'.
But this is definitely different!

It's not that she's a little thing. . .
It's hard to call fourteen ton tiny.
And she's definitely not a youngster.
Built in 1911 hardly qualifies you as a
spring chicken.
And cute she ain't!

But I guess that big, old, and ugly
somehow has a certain class all it's own.

And now BBB has moved in with us, so I
guess it is definitely developing into something serious.
