My passion for Lego began when I was a young boy and loved playing with my Lego sets. Like most kids as I grew up, I moved onto to other things and my Mom never saved my sets. (Yikes!!!!) Fast forward to when I started working the 9-5, I reconnected again with Lego and it has been a part of my adult life as an AFOL (Adult Fan Of Lego).
