    Maybe the summer heat turn the money in water and, as water, it evaporates. :eek:

    Auto repairs bill, home repairs (plumbing, roof) bill, 5-day holidays expenses, college bill... (ejem, uh, and a Walthers "New River Mining" kit :rolleyes: :oops: ). So, no more new trains until, huummm... December, I think (and then, Christmas spendings!! Arrrghhh! :curse: :cry: ).

    Oh, well. Fall is a nice time to go long walks in the woods, doing things at home, read near the fireplace, and paint kits. Some of the best things in life are free! ;) :D

    Topo I feel your pain, with school starting back up and having to pay tution, fees, and especially books :curse:. (Talk about rape!) I am sure that my bills are minor compaired to the rest of yours, but it is a lot for me. Good luck, and hopefully you might be able to find some extra cash that you have stashed away and forgotten about.

    If I try to scratchbuild the roof or the house plumbing, I can assure you that miss wouldn't be happy!!! :eek: (and the plumber will get rich).

    (Oh, are you talking about trains, don't you?) :rolleyes: :D

    Javier, you can use the coffe tins you have been saving as shingles for the roof as well as for plumbing patches, then save the rest of your money for trains :D :D :D

    Not heard from you for a long time! Good to see you post.

    That's why us Americans love credit cards so much. My biggest hope is the world ends before I run out of credit and have to start paying them guys back. :D Fred

    Topo,I feel your pain..A Lot of folks think just because I am a bachelor I don't have bills like they do..But,I have the usual utility bills,Road Runner,car insurance and other such like bills. :cry: Sure I no longer have kids at home or in college but,I have Grandkids instead.Being a Grandpa means I get the old "Grandpa,Will you buy me something" routine. :eek: But! Of course! After all I have a hat that says"Worlds Greatest Grandpa" that my Grand kids got me.
    Now as they get older I find little"odd jobs" for them to do so they can "earn" the money. :thumb: So,now I am so poor I can't "pay" attention.. :eek: :D

    Hi, friends.

    The obvious lessons in that are: "To live isn't cheap", and "Your spendings don't end after paying that thing; they have only started". ;)

    But, as I said, some of the best things in life are -apparently- free (well, having grandsons is not really "free", as Brakie have showed, but that's a thing that I will be happy to "pay" for). :D :D :D
